Love to you today where you are, beloved family!!! Today I have been reflecting upon how much Jesus desires to bless us as His kids!!! Beyond the blessing that He raised up a brand new gift of life for each one of us to experience today, His big ole Father’s heart for us has always been to love us and shower us with His kingdom blessings as the Apostle Paul wrote to the Ephesians:
“But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages He might show the incomparable riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”
Ephesians 2:4-9 NIV
As a parent, have you ever been really excited to sit your child down and give them a gift??? If so, then we can relate to the heart of our Father who wants to bless us and has forever blessed us by giving us our own special seat in heaven through our faith in Christ’s work on the cross for us, thereby giving us all the glorious riches of Christ in His kingdom coming soon. Until then, though, our Father longs to sit us down and bless us every day of our lives while here on earth, just like He did in the house of Martha and Mary. I smile when I think about how delightful it must have been for them to sit with Jesus in all His majesty and love in fullness focused upon them!!! It must have been a divine experience and I can sure understand why Mary loved it so!!! As we know from the story of Martha and Mary, life details can sure detour a person whether male or female from receiving their gift of our Father when we don’t take the time to sit down and be blessed by the heart and presence of Jesus in solitude with Him. Duty verses devotion can rob us of our Father’s gift to us and so to intentionally let go of things of less importance in order to gain the greater of hearing God’s heart is important in life. Serving Jesus can sometimes come easier than to sit with Jesus in life for all people. Jesus is our main thing in life for sure and that which will bring us gifts of light that will add blessing in all the rest of life!!!
I think if a child was going to receive a gift from their Father to bless them and help them in whatever it is they are wanting to do in life, why wouldn’t we want to sit with our Father long enough to receive that gift??? Getting the gift from Father seems to make sense to me and from personal experience, it is always a delight to my soul!!! Oh, let us not miss out on the heavenly treasures that Jesus sooo longs to bestow upon us each one oh sooo special sweet family!!! Is Father calling you to slow down and let go of things to receive the gift of hearing Jesus speak to you personally in your life, dear one??? There is nothing in all the earth that can compare to the sweetness of hearing His voice for us personally, so I’m a gal seeking the hearing of Father speak as priority and I celebrate Jesus’ sweet heart of love and gift of grace that is always wanting to shower us in life!!! Blessed kids are we and sooo privileged to receive personally the treasures of heaven to each of us from Father. He gifts each one of us uniquely and supernaturally because He knows we all have individual needs!!! Everyday is a new delightful surprise with Father for each of us!!! Oh I sooo love that!!! He always makes me smile!!! 🙂 Wooohooo!!!
Sat down and blessed by love and grace already and continually blessed every time Father sits me down to bless me again and again!!! I need Jesus as this song says here and I’m oh sooo thankful I have Him in life everyday with us together!!! Let’s keep seeking Him together for the best gifts in all of life!!! What gift is He giving to you today???
