Are we the biggest obstacle to our own blessings? I remember a dear friend telling me about how frustrated he was with trying to please his girlfriend. He had done some really thoughtful things for her and she barely acknowledged any of them. He was planning a beautiful trip for her, but she was too preoccupied to even talk to him about it. I was astonished by her callous disregard for him. This guy is young, successful, bright, handsome and sweet and—all of his life, the girls have chased him. His girlfriend seemed completely oblivious of how good she had it. It made me think about how much I’m like she is…towards God!

Jesus loves my sinful heart more than anyone and He proved His love…and still does.

The Bible says, “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8‬) No one else has ever loved me enough to die for me! Furthermore, He desires to bless me with even more than eternal life. The Bible says: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians‬ 1:3‬) God desires to bless us with eternal blessings which are more than the “wood, hay, and stubble,” they are the “gold, silver and precious stones” which outlast the decay of death. (1 Corinthians 3:12-13)

When I disregard God’s presence, and fail to love Him with all my heart, how can I possibly be aware of the blessings He has planned for me? I will miss them—because I’m not with Him.

God’s abundant blessings are just waiting for those who love Him with all their heart.

“Oh, how abundant is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you and worked for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of the children of mankind!” (Psalms 31:19) God is the greatest love we will ever know and when we are passionately in love with Him, we are in the shower of His unimaginable blessings!‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
