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: (Ephesians 1:3 KJV)
As Paul did in this verse, we need to all praise God for our blessings every day of our lives. Notice that we have already been blessed with all spiritual blessings. We are not going to get these blessings in the future, but we already have them now. If we would only realize what the Lord has already put inside us (Romans 8:18), we could truly live the victorious Christian life that we were meant to live.
Notice that these
blessing are spiritual blessings, otherwise they exist in the spirit within all
us who are born again. As we seek them and act in faith, we can bring these
blessings into the physical world we now live in. Some of the blessings are: we
have been adopted as God's children (Ephesians 1:5); we have redemption through
Jesus' blood (Ephesians 1:7); the forgiveness of our sins (Ephesians 1:7); we
have obtained an inheritance (Ephesians 1:11); have been sealed with the Holy
Spirit (Ephesians 1:13); have been given the same power that raised Christ from
the dead (Ephesians 1:19-20), have been made the one new man (Ephesians 2:15);
have been made fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God
(Ephesians 2:19); and have become a holy temple of the Lord (Ephesians 2:21), a
habitation of God (Ephesians 2:22); etc. Praise God for all His blessings to
