“For out of His fullness [the superabundance of His grace and truth] we have all received grace upon grace [spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing, favor upon favor, and gift heaped upon gift]” John 1:16, Amplified.
The Father wants us to realize how blessed we are. Sometimes, we can forget that the things that really matter, we have been given an abundance of.
I was in my car one day with a lot of concerns on my heart. I said instead of worrying, let me spend some time with the Lord and I began singing a song to praise Him and thank Him. All of sudden, I found myself in His presence surrounded in peace. I couldn’t explain it. All I could say is wow the Lord is here, and it reminded me that we’re blessed that we can simply sing His praises and the Lord shows up and there’s joy and peace in His presence. This access that you have to God at all times can’t be quantified or bought. You’re blessed!
It’s a blessing to know that whatever fight you’re in, you will have the belt in the end. To know nothing can hinder you from receiving what God has for you, not even your mistakes. That’s how blessed you are! Somehow, no matter what the devil throws at you, you don’t break. That’s how blessed you are! You have been able to stand and you just keep standing–that’s how blessed you are!
It’s a blessing that we have perfect credit spiritually because Jesus paid all of our debt of sin and our names are written in heaven (Luke 10:20). It’s a blessing to know that wealth and riches will be in the house of the man that reverence’s God and delights in His commandments. He will increase us more and more, us and our children (Psalm 115:12-14)! Most of all, you know Jesus and all you need is in your God. You are blessed beyond measure!
Prayer: Father, I’m so blessed. I receive it all Father! I thank You for reminding me of how much You have and are blessing my life. It is beyond measure! I’m a blessed man. Help me to keep counting my blessings and be a man that expects to come out on top every single time because my trust is in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
