I Am Blessed

Description

The number one reason most of us don’t feel blessed is because we are constantly focused on the things we don’t have.

Read: Romans 10:12-13 & Psalm 32:1-2 & Ephesians 1:3

You are forgiven, free, gifted, valuable, blessed; you have a hope and you have a purpose! 

All of your friends are getting married, and you are still single. Everyone you know is having babies, and you can’t seem to get pregnant. People are buying houses, and you can’t afford a loan. You are surrounded by people with dream jobs, expensive cars and perfect bodies. If any of these scenarios sound familiar, you’ve probably wondered, “Why is everyone else getting blessed but me? I am being financially responsible, reading my Bible, serving at church and loving my spouse. Where are my blessings?”

The number one reason most of us don’t feel blessed is because we are constantly focused on the things we don’t have. Romans 10:12 tells us that “there is no difference between Jew and Gentile – the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on Him.” God does not love the believer in the expensive house more than the believer in the rental on a rough side of town. We are all God’s children, and we are all richly blessed.

For starters, your sins are forgiven, every last one. “Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord does not count against him and in whose spirit is no deceit” (Psalm 32:1-2). God will never hold anything against you and loves you no matter what. Because of His everlasting forgiveness and love, He does not give us what we deserve (hell), but instead He gives us what we never could have earned (eternity in heaven and an abundant life on Earth). If we never received another blessing, we would have already been richly blessed!

God has blessed and is blessing each one of us. Let us take time today to “Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3).
