Galatians 3:14 He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.

When we hear the word blessed, some of us think of stuff (house, cars, money, etc.). Someone else may think of having good health, happiness, and having everything we need. Both are correct and one is not better than the other.

For those in Christ (those who made Jesus Lord) we’re blessed. We’re not blessed because we have stuff or all that we need. We’re blessed because of the blessing. Notice, it’s not plural. This blessing was spoken by God to Abraham and his seed.

Galatians 3:16 the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. It does not say “and to seeds” as of many but “and to your seed” as of One, who is Christ.

If we’re in Christ, we’re blessed. Not because of the stuff that we have, but because of Jesus and the fact that God said it. The blessings (plural) we have come from the blessing.

Since God spoke it, it has to come to happen for everyone who believes. It’s not going to happen automatically. We must believe in the blessing He spoke over Abraham and His children. We must believe we’re children of Abraham and the blessing is for us.

Don’t get down because your life is not matching up with this blessing. Once we believe, watch all these blessings start pouring in our lives.
