We all want blessings from God, but we must develop spiritual maturity to understand and identify them when they come. Not everything we call a blessing is from above.
God loves his creation (John 3:16), and especially those who serve him (Isaiah 59:1-2). He sent his Son to earth to live, die and establish his church (Romans 5:6-11; Matthew 16:18).
Those who are baptized into Christ are added to the body of Jesus (Galatians 3:27; Ephesians 1:22-23).
Jesus tells us that God takes care of his children (Matthew 6:25-34). If we’ll serve God faithfully, he’ll shower us with blessings (Malachi 3:10; Philippians 4:19).
We must realize the following four important facts about blessings and examine them in terms of spiritual maturity and prayer. A deep study of God’s Word allows us amazing insight into the mind of God.
