I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and weekend! Now it’s back to work and school, but not without the memory of the wonderful blessings we experienced with family and friends. God has blessed us in so many ways.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.”
Ephesians 1:3 (NKJV)
The Greek word for “blessed” is eulogesas. It means that God has spoken well of us. Think about that for a moment. The God of all creation … the God Who sits on the Heavenly Throne … the God Who has all power and authority in the universe … the God Who knows all things … the God Who is Perfect and Holy … has spoken well of you! Let anyone else on earth say what they will about you. Let Satan say what he will about you. God has spoken well of you!
It reminds me of what the Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 8:
“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.”
Jesus Christ speaks well of you to His Father in heaven. God the Father of all speaks well of you. Should you then allow the negative, cutting or hurtful words of others bring you down? No! People may rail against you. People may lie about you. People may do everything in their power to make you look bad. They may try to make you feel guilty about the past. But Jesus Christ is at the Right Hand of God interceding for you. God speaks well of you. YOU ARE BLESSED!
Visit again tomorrow when we’ll look at the many blessings God has given us.
In Christ’s Love and Grace,
