The Bible never ceases to amaze me. I love what I read recently in Ephesians 1:3-4
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
I find it hard to wrap my arms around the fact that I have already been given everything that need for life and living the life that God intended. I tend to pray for what I already possess because I forget to activate what I already have.
In Christ I have Assurance: I’ve been Adopted into His family: I am Loved: I am Accepted: I am Included: I have Hope: I can operate in Boldness: I can be a Great Friend: A Great Parent: I have been given Wisdom/Insight: I am Gifted: I am Forgiven and I have the power to forgive.
Even on my worst day God sees me at at my very best. He couldn’t love me more than He does right now. That’s unbelievable!
4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship thru Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One He loves.
Incredible verses! My problem is that I tend to trust my feelings over that which my Father (God) has said. Don’t make the same mistakes that I tend to make. When we don’t feel like a man/woman of God – we should remember that our Father says we are: When we don’t think you have what it takes? Our Father says we do ::
The choice is up to us. We can believe our feelings or our Father! One leads to Freedom. The other not so much.
