Daily Devotional
August 1
 
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
 
‘We’re blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places,’ Paul writes jubilantly from his prison cell, ‘and they’re all in Christ’ — not from Christ, but in Christ. The blessings we crave are not promises we pray for, but a Person we walk with.

‘Oh, Lord,’ we say, ‘I need some bread.’
‘I am the Bread,’ Jesus answers (John 6:35)

‘Show me the way,’ we cry.
‘I am the Way,’ Jesus declares (John 14:6).

‘Tell me the truth,’ we pray.
‘I am the Truth,’ Jesus proclaims (John 14:6).

We think we need help in this area or deliverance from that thing. We think we need satisfaction in a profession or blessing in a relationship, little knowing that our heart’s desire will only be truly fulfilled in Jesus. How do I know? Because 2 Corinthians 1:20 says, ‘For all the promises of God are in Him yea and Amen.’ All the promises of God are fulfilled in Him, in Jesus.

Two nights ago, with Tammy away at a pastors’ wives conference and the kids tucked in, I grabbed my Bible and had the best time reading Isaiah 54 as I walked the streets of Jacksonville. God spoke to me through each phrase as I stopped under the streetlights to read another verse and marvel how it related to me. I returned home awed at how the Lord walked with me in the evening hour.

Do I tell you this to impress you? No. I say it because you can find the same thing tonight. Turn off the TV. Put down the Time magazine. Grab your Bible, go for a walk, and I promise you God will meet you.
