In the midst of conversation with ourselves and with others as we speak of being blessed through our time with God, or through going on a missions trip or enjoying His creation on a fall hike, in the back of our minds let’s always remember we are blessed even if we didn’t have a special time with God or go on a missions trip or on a beautiful hike through the colorful leaves.
As redeemed children of God we are already blessed because God has already kept His promise from the Garden. He sent His Son – seed of the woman to crush the head of the serpent (Gen 3:15). In so doing, He has provided redemption for His chosen ones. Therefore we ALREADY are and ALWAYS will be blessed.
But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Gal 4:4-7
I think if we remind ourselves of this truth daily it will nurture in us a heart of gratefulness.
I am redeemed by the blood of the lamb and forever and always blessed.
Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice.
