Begging – spiritually?

1 11 2012
“Oh, if only God would bless me!” And so we pray, “God bless me . . . with wisdom, with patience, in this decision, in my job, as I teach . . .” and the list goes on. Yet, with all our sincere seeking and praying, we miss the blessing. Why?
One day as I was frantically searching through the house, my wife asked, “What are you looking for?” “My keys,” I answered. “What is that in your hand?” Much to my amazement, I discovered I had picked up the keys without realizing it.  “What is that in your hand?” is a question that we need to ask ourselves. In Ephesians 1:3 we discover that we have already been blessed with the blessings. “He has blessed us….” – past tense. But what have we been blessed with? Everything! We have been blessed with the blessing of Christ Himself. Because we have Christ, we have all the spiritual blessings of heaven. Through Christ, all the heavenly resources are at our disposal. God has blessed you and you are a blessing.
