In the midst of our enduring we can either keep our focus on Him or our focus on our circumstances. If we keep our focus on Him, we see over and over again the goodness of God to us. We remember His love and mercy is given daily to us. Grace abounds and Ephesians reminds us we have been blessed in Christ with every spiritual blessing. We have been blessed in the beloved.
When we focus on the Lord, we are choosing to exalt Him. To magnify Him means make Him bigger than what we are facing. Worship is the key to all overcoming. This verse in Ephesians is a word of praise rehearsing the fullness of the blessing we have from our Father in Christ. Since the Father seeks worshipers and we are a royal priesthood to show forth the praises of Him who has (past tense) called us out of darkness and into His Kingdom, this is a good place to start in not forgetting His benefits in a season of endurance.
Ephesians goes on to tell us the first blessing is adoption. Our hearts cry Abba Father. What Father withholds life from His child? He has chosen us to be His very own, sealed with His promised Holy Spirit. All that He has, has been given to us through His son, Jesus Christ. A spiritual blessing that alters our daily reality.
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will. Redemption, forgiveness, abundant rich grace lavished on us, wisdom and insight into His will are all spiritual blessings that alter our daily realties.
As His child, we truly lack for no good thing because of the blessing we have been given in the beloved. All of heaven stands at attention to serve the Fathers commands. The Father waits on the one who simply chooses to believe and trust Him.
Just remember - have been blessed.
Keep your eyes on what you do have right now and not what you don’t.
The pool of your natural resources are found in Christ’s spiritual blessings in the heavenlies.
