April 24

What does it mean to be blessed? Many people have the wrong idea about what that means in the eyes of God. Humanly speaking, being blessed means being healthy, wealthy and wise! But, of course, God sees it differently, and measures it in His way. For God, being blessed means you have all the spiritual blessings, which opens the door for His outpouring. There are more blessings to be found throughout the Bible, but these are the few that I pulled from Ephesians 1:3-14

Spiritual Blessings:
We are chosen and accepted (vs 4)
We are adopted through Jesus (vs 5)
We are redeemed and are forgiven (vs 7)
We are given insight into the mystery of His will (vs 8-9)
We are united with Jesus (vs 10)
And all of these culminate with the guarantee of our inheritance by being sealed with the Holy Spirit (vs 13-14)

Earthly wealth, health, and wisdom are not even part of the picture. Change your mind to be thankful for your spiritual blessings; we’ve done nothing to deserve them, they are all a free gift!

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, Ephesians 1:3
