Sharing An Insight – Blessed By Hope – Lesson 3

         Why is it that when we hear the word blessings, we are so prone to think about our money, health, protection, and success? In fact, the dictionary defines that word as “anything promoting or contributing to happiness, well-being, or prosperity; a boon.” It seems to me that the apostle Paul’s definition might be quite different than our culture’s view of being blessed. It is when I focus on the spiritual blessings that I have in Christ, that all of life comes in to focus. I have a glorious inheritance that is going to be mine as a child of The King. I have His incomparably great power giving me the strength that I need day by day. I have the riches of God’s grace and kindness which enables me to reach out to people around me whose needs are so great. “Lord, when my hope is in You and not in my circumstances, then I am truly and fully blessed. Thank You for giving me a hope that will never change or grow old or disappear.”
