Abraham was now very old, and the Lord had blessed him in every way. Genesis 24:1
I love this verse. It sums up Abraham’s life in very few words.
It should also sum up our lives. If you were to pass away tomorrow, does this verse apply to you?
What I’m asking is about God’s blessings on your life.
God continues to bless his children with peace, contentment, a sound mind, joy, and faithfulness to name a few. Of course we are blessed with food in our stomachs and roofs over our head.
In the end, though, this verse is about perspective. Even in horrific situations, we can see the blessings of God if we look for them.
Of course not everything that happens to us is a blessing of God. We’d be foolish to think that.
God can and does use these events for his glory and our growth.
In fact, a New Testament verse paraphrases this verse, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3.
