Blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
s I Was reading this morning I thought about how God takes care of us He cares about the sparrows.As I was looking out my window this morning I saw a little robin I couldnt help but think how we have such a loving God I enjoyed feeding the little bird I Wonder if God brought her to my window so I would feed her so many times I fail at feeding Jesus sheep the testing God allows in our life to know our hearts to see if we really do love God.
John 21:17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
1:4 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:
1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
1:8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
1:9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
1:12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
1:15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,
1:16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
1:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
1:20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
1:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
1:23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
My hope and prayer is this morning is to love God with all my heart and soul as well as love my neighbor.
God is worthy of all my praise all of my life.There is no God more powerful loving caring all knowing just as the true story of the indian tribe to prove a boy is a man his Dad would walk him out in the woods and tell him he is not allowed to tell others he is sat down on a stump and blind folded he can take off the blind fold when it becomes light out in early morning the test is so frightening to the the boy hearing all kinds of noise through out the night until morning comes taking off the blindfold he realized Daddy was close by all through the night to protect him from all harm we have a heavenly Daddy that is there beside us all through the night all through the storms I Am so blessed to have a heavenly Daddy that cares Who would refuse the love of such a good Daddy?
