One of the offering envelopes in our collection yesterday had the verse from Ezekiel 34 v 26 written on it.
This is a wonderful verse of prophecy telling us what is to come under the new covenant; it is such an encouragement.
It speaks of the Lord blessing His people, and not only blessing them but showering them with blessings.
These blessings have already been showered down and this is now a reality for every new covenant believer.
We have already been blessed with all spiritual blessings (Ephesians 1 v 3).
We already have all the blessings we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1 v 3).
Old covenant prophecy is wonderful to see what the Lord is going to do.
It is better however to live under the new covenant when He has actually done these things.
We should be enjoying his blessings rather than asking for them.
In a similar way we should be enjoying the presence of the Holy Spirit instead of asking God to “open the heavens and pour out His Spirit”.
We live under the new covenant where God has done what He is going to do; He sent Jesus, He sent the Holy Spirit and He has blessed us.
Quit asking and start enjoying!
Speak this out today….”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus Christ and thank you that we now live under the new covenant”.
Ezekiel 34 v 26…..And I will make them and the places around about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing
