I appreciate how the book of Ephesians starts. The praise to God is wonderful, but the reason for the praise catches my attention. Those of us who have placed our trust in Christ have “every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places”. The rest of the chapter gives more specifics about what those blessings are.
I think we as believers fall into the trap of thinking we don’t have everything we need. However, God has told us through His Word that we do have what we need. 2 Peter 1:3 reiterates that fact. I look forward to studying the book of Ephesians (amongst other passages) this year to remind me what God has provided.
Dear Heavenly Father, I praise You for the many blessings You give so freely. I ask for guidance as I study what You have given. Please help me to share the truth with others.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
