Start Enjoying God’s Blessings
Do you know that right now there are radio signals in the air all around you that you are completely unaware of? The atmosphere where you are is filled with sounds that you cannot perceive because they exist on frequencies that are too high for your ears to perceive. Now, just because your senses do not perceive them does not mean that they are not active and real. If you had the right equipment, you could transform the frequencies on which those sound waves currently exist into lower frequencies that your ears can hear. Then you would be able to experience those sounds and enjoy the music. And that is what happens when you turn on a radio! The radio lays hold of the music that is already in the air and transforms it into a frequency your senses are capable of experiencing.
God is a Spirit. Angels are spirits. But like the sound ways we cannot perceive with our physical senses, spiritual reality exists in a form that is not perceivable to our physical senses. However, just because we do not perceive them physically does not mean they are not active and real. And with the right equipment, spiritual reality can be transformed into physical reality perceivable to the senses, which we can enjoy.
Does such “equipment” exist? It does! Hebrews 11:1 reads: “Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things not seen.” Faith is like our radios. It taps into a spiritual reality that our senses are oblivious to and causes it to be transformed into a physical reality we can experience. It takes what exists on a “frequency” too high for our senses to perceive and brings it down to a physical, experiential level.
The Bible declares in Ephesians 1:3: we are blessed with all spiritual blessings in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Note: we are already blessed! But because these blessings exist as spiritual reality, our senses are unable to experience them. They need to be received by faith and “transformed” into a reality we can experience.
The good news is that God has given to every man the measure of faith (Rom. 12:3). He has supplied us with the measure of faith we need to be able to lay hold of spiritual things and bring them into the realm of our experience. Now, it’s up to us to use this grace of faith.
So how do we put our faith to use? The key is found in Romans 10:8-10. “The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth and in thy heart, that is the word of faith, which we preach; that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe with thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
According to Ephesians 1:3, you are already blessed with every spiritual blessing. So the “atmosphere” you live in is filled with every type of blessing imaginable, but which your senses do not yet perceive. It will take faith to bring them into the realm where you can experience them. By practicing the principles of faith outlined in Romans 10, you will allow the Holy Spirit that is in you to manifest those blessings in your life.
Here is what you should do. Be diligent to put God’s Word in your heart; make sure you believe that you have already been blessed with every spiritual blessing by virtue of Jesus having been raised from the dead already. Then confess daily that through the resurrection you have already received the things you want the Holy Spirit to manifest. It is important that you see that your blessing is a blood-bought blessing that already exists because Jesus has already risen from the dead and that you say it! That is how you use your faith and that is how you facilitate the ministry of the Holy Spirit who transforms your spiritual blessings into physical reality.
You have the blessing already and the faith to enjoy it. So what are you waiting for? It is time to start enjoying what Jesus has provided for you!
Because scriptures interprete scriptures, the context of this article is sound, well balanced and enriched with spirit-filled truth. This is exactly how God feed us His blessings on the platter of His Word – Acts 20:32.
God bless you, Bishop !
