One of the things I have noticed and I see it within my own life and that is we often tend to put limits on what God can do for us. We want Jesus blessings but we never think about those internal blessings that we need. See we all deal with issues like anger, annoyed, arrogant, ashamed, bitter, bored, bullied complaining, condemned people, controlling spirits, critical spirits, guilt, insecure, lazy, jealous, lonely, procrastination, resentful, self-destructive, self- hatred, pity shy, stubborn, timid and these are just to name a few.
And yet we spend so much time asking God to bring us blessings in material things, the more possessions we have the more we feel we are blessed. But God is wanted to do a blessing in every area of your life.
What stops us from understanding the whole thing about blessings, is that we are still in slavery in our minds. We are no different from the children in Egypt, they cried and begged for a leader to deliver them out of Pharaoh’s hands and the moment the Lord raised up Moses and delivered them the people complain about being in the wilderness, they thought they was better off being in Pharaoh’s court.
What they neglect to see is themselves being delivered not just in the physical but in the spirit but because they could not see that their mindset was still in slavery.
Is your mind still in slavery, back at Pharaoh’s court? If we were to be honest we will see just how much slavery we are in, Jesus came to deliver us from slavery and yet we want all these things of possessions when Jesus is wanting to do a heart surgery and make you into what you never were. In 3 John, we see in verse 2 how God said “beloved I wished above all things that as you prosper in be in good health that your soul prospers. We have far too many Christians not prospering the way Jesus wanted us to because we don’t understand the truth of God’s Blessings.
Don’t let fear keep you from knowing the truth about God’s blessings. Paul describes these blessings as “spiritual blessings, and blessings that are in “heavenly places’ meaning the blessings are not physical or material. Got it?
