Where Are Your Blessings?
Let me tell you where your blessings are.
Do you remember your junior high Science? Then you know, for thousands of years, water has been moving in a cycle, from earth to the air and back to the earth again. During this water cycle, its chemical composition, H20, does not change, but the form it exists in does. It can go from being a gas, to a liquid, to a solid. That’s right–water can exist as a gas, but under the right conditions become as solid as ice. What does this have to do with your blessings? A lot! Read on.
Ephesians 1:3 tells us that God has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Notice, He has already blessed us with every blessing we will ever need. God has fulfilled every promise, having provided righteousness, health, peace and godly prosperity for us already. You already have what you think you lack.
“But if so, why don’t I see them? Where are these blessings you are talking about?”
Remember the water cycle? Water can exist as an invisible gas, but under the right conditions change into solid ice. While in its gaseous state, it exists, but is unobservable to the senses. But it’s there, as much water as it will ever be! You would be wrong to conclude no water is in the air just because it is invisible. Create the right set of conditions and it will manifest itself to you.
Your blessings are right there, in Christ, in you. They exists in their spirit form, but they are as real as water in its gaseous state. Don’t be fooled into thinking that just because they are unobservable they are not already present with you. They are there because God declared it so. Create the right set of conditions in your heart and they will manifest themselves to you. Like water, God gives those blessings the power to change their form, to go from being just spiritual to being emotional and physical. To becoming the type of blessing you can feel and touch!
Water needs cold or heat to change form. And spiritual blessings need faith in God’s Word and patience to materialize. “Therefore, whatsoever things you desire, when you pray, believe you have already received them, and you shall have them.” (Mark 11:24)
The woman with the issue of blood said, “If I but touch the hem of his garments, I will be healed.” She believed her healing, though invisible, was already present in Him. She released her faith with her words and her health materialized; instantly, in her case.
Are you asking God to bless you? You are too late. He already has! Therefore, when you pray, do not beg God to bless you. Instead, believe He has already blessed you and release faith out of your mouth with your words. Then continue to confess God’s Word, to give thanks, to believe–knowing that the blessing which today exist in spirit form will surely manifest “tomorrow,” in the form of a blessing that is as solid as ice! It may not happen instantly, but it will, if you faint not.
Now that you know where your blessings are, enjoy!
