Wisdom For The Day Devotional 11 September 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – We Are Already Blessed
TOPIC: We Are Already Blessed (TREM Devotional 11 September 2022)
“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ;…” Galatians 3:13-14 (KJV)
Our Lord Jesus Christ was not killed. He gave up Himself! He was not murdered! He willingly gave Himself up as a sacrifice. He said if there was any other price needed to be paid let it come upon Him. And when there was no more left, he now said it is finished. The justice required to release mankind has been satisfied.
The holiness of God that makes you speak and it comes to pass has been revealed. And of course, right there, man became a recipient of the righteousness of God. It is no more a struggle. Jesus became a gift unto us. Ephesians 1:3 declares: “Blessed be the Lord God, and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ”. Notice that the word blessed is past tense, meaning God has already blessed us. He hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.
We are not going to be blessed or waiting to be blessed. We are already blessed by the reason of the price paid.
The blessing of God is empowerment. It has been made available in every area of your life. You are blessed! Always declare it to yourself that you are blessed. According to the book of 2Peter 1:2-4: “Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and Jesus our Lord, according to as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises…” God has already given us everything that pertains to life. It is already yours in Christ. And there is nothing the devil can do about it. The price has been fully paid. Receive it and thank Him for the blessing.
