Our God is a promise keeper God. When He says in His Word that something is going to happen, it does. I love it when God uses inclusive terms like: everyone, all, every, and whosoever. When He uses inclusive language in His Word, He means it. All means all. Everyone means everyone. When God uses this inclusive language, He means it.
I was reading Ephesians 1:3 this morning, “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,” Paul writes that we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
It all starts with the words “in Christ.” If you have an intimate personal relationship with God through His Son Jesus, then you are in Christ. Being “in Christ” means that you received (at the time of salvation) the inheritance that God has for you through the death of His Son. And it’s a LARGE inheritance!
Paul writes that if we are “in Christ,” we have every spiritual blessing! There’s God’s all inclusive language in action: every. We have every spiritual blessing. As believers in Christ, we have it all.
Having every spiritual blessing means that we have everything we need to live the Christian life here on earth. We don’t have to limp around in this life on our own. The Bible calls living our of our own power living out of the flesh. We don’t have to live that way any more because we have every spiritual blessing!
What are you facing today? Death of a loved one? Cancer? A wayward child? Job loss? Bad doctor report? Financial stress? Whatever is facing you, in Christ, you have every spiritual blessing – already – right now. You can face whatever is being thrown at you because of the power of Christ in you. And He doesn’t just give you a little. He give you everything you need. You can make it in His power and strength!
Do you need to trust that you have every spiritual blessing today? When God says “every” He means every. When God uses all inclusive language in His Word He means it. We just have to believe Him and have faith in His word. Share your thoughts in the comments.
