For two weeks, I have been sharing on how to develop the seed of greatness in you. However, today, I would like to elaborate on God’s special letter specifically written to you!
“Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus: Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:” (Ephesians 1:1-4)
This is a special letter and word from heaven. Assume that this is a special letter from God to you. One of the things you will find out that you need in the world is peace. Older people tend to seek for peace more than younger people. “Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 1:2). For Paul to wish you peace, it is from his maturity and experience. That should tell you the importance of peace in your life. Instead of seeking for excitement, seek for peace.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3).
Before you become a Christian, a part of you is completely dead. You may be in the world and alive in the world but you are dead in your spirit. When you become a Christian, without knowing, your spirit is alive and you have come alive. So, seek for spiritual things because such things are connected to all other physical things. The physical things you see are made up of the spiritual blessings God has placed in your life. Why is that? Because we are told in Hebrews 11:3 that “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” If you do not take anything out of what I am saying, remember that you are a spiritual person. Pray for spiritual things! Have an aim to have certain spiritual things and your life is going to go higher. God has blessed us with spiritual blessings. What at all can a physical blessing bring forth? Not much. Spiritual blessings will however bring about countless physical blessings. Never underrate spiritual blessings!
“According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:” (Ephesians 1:4)
God has chosen you. He chose you before the foundation of the world. You may sometimes feel as though you stumbled into God accidentally but remember that you were chosen before the foundations of the world. That is why you must always pray for the will of God in your life. Do not dwell on how you came into this world or why you came into the world. God had a plan for you! You were chosen before the foundations of this world. God chose you to be holy. Holiness is something we are afraid of. However, when something is holy, it is said to be special and set aside for a special purpose. You will always be special to God. God is making you holy. Receive grace to remain holy and to value spiritual blessings.
