This Week in the Word: We Lack No Blessing

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. Ephesians 1:3 NKJV


Sometimes it can be extremely difficult to see the blessings before us. It can be a challenge to feel like we have what we need, like there is no lack in provision, like we are being cared for the way we should be. Sometimes, trusting God’s plan over our own is downright hard. Can you relate?

Life has been a bit topsy-turvy for my family and me for the last couple of years. I sustained a dominant wrist injury that after 2 years can still not be explained, I’ve since had another injury in my knee, ruptured my eardrum twice, and my family has been up and down with illness for the last 5 months straight. Not only this, but my daughter’s mental health is practically in shambles. Aside from health, I could point out plenty of things that have stressed us out, caused us panic, or left us wondering what God is doing.

In this time, God has been teaching me pivotal truths from Ephesians 1.

First, God is always worthy to be praised no matter what is happening in my life. Even when life is hard, when things don’t make sense, when I panic, when tears pour out and the question of “why?” is on my lips and my mind… God is still worthy of my praise. Not just for what He has done and is doing, but for who He is. God is good all the time. God is on the throne all the time. God is in control all the time. God is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent all the time. I can trust God all the time, even when things don’t make sense to my small human understanding. He is worthy of praise, even when life hurts.

Second, God is providing for my family and me, and has been showering us with blessings all through this long season of difficulties we’ve been in. We don’t always see the blessings, and they are not always what we’d expect, but boy have they been there. Even in the areas I have not yet recovered my full health, God has been teaching me about Himself. Even with my daughter’s mental health, He is teaching me about His sovereignty. Even when we have questions, He provides all we need and reminds us that what we need and what we think we need don’t always line up.

God showers us with blessings – tangible and spiritual. The spiritual blessings are the best ones, though. Sure, we all want financial and material stability and blessings, but the blessings we can’t see with our eyes are the best blessings we could ever have. When God provides, He provides thoroughly. I love the saying “be careful when you pray for patience. God doesn’t give you patience, He gives you opportunities to have patience.” This is true all over our lives. When we pray for provisions, He gives us opportunities to step toward Him and accept His blessings on His terms. This in itself is a blessing, but the process of growing in the provision is also a blessing.

In this season, I have grown in my faith, learned to depend on Him better, and He has taught me peace and contentment in circumstances I once panicked and failed to trust Him. He has put my family through a season of learning to recognize and utilize these blessings He provides, and rest in the peace that comes with them.

What blessings Has God been inviting you into? What provisions are waiting for you to take hold of and utilize? What areas are you being convicted to grow in and trust Him with? Take that step toward Him today and begin the process of learning to trust His plans and provisions.

We lack no blessing. We lack no provision. Every need is known and understood by the Lord, and His provisions for those needs are sufficient. The most beautiful of them are being stored up in Heaven for us, where Jesus Himself prepares a place for us to dwell with Him. The most precious blessings are spiritual, and He is training us to seek and see those blessings.

Look to Heaven for your blessings and you will never be disappointed, and you will never feel deficient of blessings.

Have you accepted the grace of God?

If you have not accepted the grace of God and chosen to believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, I encourage you to pray to God now and invite Him in, accept Jesus as the sacrifice for your sins, and repent of your sins. Submit it all to God, lay it at His feet, seek the forgiveness of God, welcome Him into your life, and believe that Jesus died and rose again to save you from your sins.
