Today’s devotional meditation is taken from Ephesians 1:3, which says,
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.”
All too often we are focused on material blessings only, and we lose sight of the spiritual blessings that God the Father lavishes upon the believer from heaven. Paul praises God the Father who causes us to prosper not only materially, but spiritually as well. He does this by generously extending unto us great benefits.
It is necessary to understand when we are being tested by the Lord, He enables us to make it through the tough times by giving us the strength to hold on. He enables us to be joyful in spite of hardships that’s a blessing. Every material blessing we receive are by His grace no matter how big or small we may consider it to be. We must grow to the place where we learn to be like apostle Paul who said, “Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.” (NASB) That is a great spiritual disposition to have. Whether we have little or much, we are truly blessed
