Ephesians 1:3 (NIV) 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.

There are several Heavenly Father’s blessings that He has provided for His children who always obey listening to His commandments.

  1. Privileges
    God has given us a privilege as His children.
    Genesis 3:17-19 (NIV) To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”

Since falling into sin, man have continued to live under the shadow of curse and
must work hard (struggle) all his life only to fulfil his daily needs. But by the
redemption of Christ, as a new creation, we have been given a privilege in Christ “to work” not by relying on the strength of our hands and feet but “work” by using our mouths.

Psalm 8:2-6 (NIV) Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet:

Use our mouths to declare the word, God’s promises and every revelation from
the Spirit as a privilege God has given us. What comes out from our mouths
contain power to manifest what we declare. Each of our declaration that contains the word that we believe will be able to conquer and dominate the atmosphere, nature even situations and conditions will adjust to become in line with His word that we declare.

  1. There is strict guarding from the Kingdom of Heaven.
    Psalm 91:3-14 (NIV) Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he[a] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

Our lives will be guarded in such a way by Father, The Sovereign of the universe, we don’t need to be afraid and worry about anything or any condition. Our hearts will be filled with calmness and surrounded by abundant peace, because His reality will always make us feel safe and secure.

Danger, accidents, sickness even death will be avoided from our lives whose
hearts are always attached to God and know His name. Amen.
