“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:”  
Ephesians 1:3

I love the above verse because it says “HAS blessed”!  So it is already done!  Blessed US with ALL spiritual blessings!  Salvation, healing, wholeness, protection, provision, deliverance, restored, all already ours!

Look at the very next verse, “For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love” (Ephesians 1:4)  What a blessing!  He chose us BEFORE the creation of the world!  God had us in mind when He made the world.  Before He created anything, you were His purpose!  You did not just “happen”!  You are not an accident!  You were purposed by God!  Precious!  Loved!  Holy and blameless through Jesus!

“He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will…” (Ephesians 1:5)   So, not only were we His purpose and plan, but He adopted us into HIS family!  What love!!!

Verse 6 - “he hath made us accepted in the beloved”  (accepted in greek=to grace, to honor with special blessings)
Verse 7 - “we have the forgiveness and complete pardon of our sin”
Verse 8 - given to us all wisdom and understanding of the riches of His grace
Verse 11 - “we have received an inheritance (a destiny, we were claimed by God as His own)

Praise God for ALL the blessings we HAVE and this is just a list of the blessings from Ephesians 1!  The Bible is full of the blessings that are ours!  Believe them!  Take them and know how very, very special you are to God!  You were on His mind before He created anything!

Enjoy His many Blessings,
