Procession of blessings!
Verse for Today: Friday, April 12, 2013
John 1:16 – From the fullness of (Christ’s) grace we have all received one blessing after another.
God deals with man through the abundance of His grace. It is unilateral outpouring of God’s favor on man who does not deserve it because man willfully rejected God and His commandments. There was no reason why God should come back to man except because of His infinite love for him. The love of God compels Him to extent favor and blessings upon man. These blessings are the opportunities that God extends to man to come back to God and establish a new relationship. All the favors that we enjoy today are God’s ways of touching our lives and speak loudly about His desire that we acknowledge His love towards us. All things that God extends to man to sustain him are heavenly messages of love to man to get back to God. Through all provisions, protection and peace that are promised to man, God wants to touch human life. He continues to shower blessings of various kinds upon us to remind us that He cares for us. All the blessings that God sends us are from the fullness of His grace which never fades away. He knows the areas of our lives where we need blessings of various kinds and supplies it at the right time in the right measure. All blessings are gifts of grace from Him on the basis of our immediate and futuristic needs. The physical and emotional gifts we receive follow the spiritual grace that is imparted. Ultimately God is committed to grant us spiritual gifts which alone will last for eternity. We are thus blessed with all the spiritual blessings of the heavenly places to enjoy here and now for all our situations with ultimate impact all through eternity. It is our resource to appropriate by faith to live victoriously.

But if you draw spiritual blessings spread for you on the table of blessings of the Lord, it will enrich you with bliss. You are positionally given these blessings one after the other to meet your emerging needs, but you must claim it by faith. If you are disobedient, you must confess it and get right with the Lord for you to enjoy the blessings.
