What would it take for you to consider yourself a rich person? A big bank count, a new car, what about the freedom to do, go and be whatever you wanted? Or would it take someone buying you everything you ever wanted?
The worlds standard of riches and God’s standard of being rich are two different things. The riches of God come from Him and they last. Those of th world lose their value and fade away.
In verse three we read, “who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” This means that for the believer these “riches” have already happened. You are rich in being saved, forgiven and a part of God’s family. God has raised you out of that life you used to live, into a new life with Him. You are rich in His goodness, mercy, comfort, peace, joy, and hope. His provision, purpose, plan and place that He has for YOU makes you a “rich” person. Feeling wealthy now? You are in HIM!
Being in Christ, you are spiritually rich. Today thank Him for these “riches” that you have, that He is there for you today, tomorrow, and in the future. Today make a withdrawal and claim them throughout your day as you live for Christ in your daily walk. Father, thank you for giving me your Son, Jesus Christ, for forgiving me and saving me. Thank you for your word today that reminds me of how rich I am in you and that with these riches, I will never be bankrupt.
