The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3 (NASB)
In the eighth chapter of Romans we learn that we are the children of God. We have the witness of the Holy Spirit that we are children of God, and because we are His children we are heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ (Rom. 8:4-17).
What God’s storehouse contains in Christ, only eternity will reveal. Certainly the finite mind of man cannot conceive of the spiritual blessings (and physical blessings) contained in God’s storehouse—but it is only in Christ that we can claim these supplies as we need them, spiritually and physically.
What is ours in Christ now? What is our present standing, our present riches, our present power, is known only in part. We know we are the children of God, we know He can supply our need. We know He will never leave us nor forsake us—but these finite minds and our limited faith cannot conceive the fullness of the blessing that rests upon us now as we sit together in heavenly places in Christ.
