Has God blessed you in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ?

First of all, let us agree that is God who has laid the foundation for gratitude for what He has done.

God’s eternal purpose was the salvation of you and me.  God is worthy of such a plan, revealed to people.

It is grounds for us to have confidence and hope and if we consider this we would be praising God for such a plan of salvation.

When I talk about you and I being blessed, do I really mean that all of us in the world can be blessed?  No, for the world is not blessed with “all” spiritual blessings.  In the same thought, not all nations will be blessed, not all Gentiles or Jews.  It also does not mean financial gain, healthy families, great jobs etc.

Spiritual blessings refer to those of us having received redemption and the forgiveness of sins resulting in our obtaining an inheritance and being sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.  We are more commonly known in the Bible as “saints,” “believers,” and I like using the phrase, followers of Christ.

Spiritual blessings would include things like pardon, peace, redemption,and adoption.

So in regard to heavenly subjects or matters and pertaining to heaven, we are now suited and prepared for heaven.  We have received those gifts and graces that are heavenly in nature through Christ or I should say, by the means of Christ.

  1. Deuteronomy 28:3
    “Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country”.
    You are blessed wherever you are. The truth is that blessings is not in a place that gets your blessings, but God’s blessing is on you. And for you, child of God, you are already blessed with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 1:3) He has paid for your blessings with His blood. So the blessing is not on the land but on the man!
