Our health benefits plan is changing through the company I work for. There was a huge amount of payments made last year. Because of all the pay out, we now must incur a premium increase. Not only will we have an increase in premiums, our out of pocket cost will increase as well. Benefits cost someone and now we will be absorbing that cost.
God’s benefits never run dry and God’s provision for them all never ceases! He is always giving us benefit upon benefit. He never expects payment or shows partiality in any way. We don’t even have to pay the premium for Christ paid that for us! He paid that price one time on the cross. But our benefits are daily and His mercies are new every morning. Every single morning for eternity. No one is counting costs at the corporate office for the Lord. Nobody is saying 7 times you’ve asked forgiveness and now your time is up. No one is saying you’ve messed up and cost heaven too much mercy and grace. Now you will have to pay.
The benefits package for your body, mind and spirit was a one-time payment by the Blood of the Lamb. His Word is your plan written out by God Himself – breathed into existence so that you would have access to the Truth for your daily life. By taking His Word in and reading all your benefits no one can steal from you. The enemy can’t come in and lie to you when you need God the most. No you are secure and your knowledge of the Word is your covering and protection.
Oh beloved, Run to the Father this morning and thank Him for His spectacular beneficial care! Take in His Word as your necessary daily rehearsal of all the blessings and care of the Lord. All He asks is that you confess Him as Lord and live for Him. You may be fearful that God will somehow kick you out of the “plan” because of your weaknesses. But in God’s plan your weakness is a magnificent opportunity to show His strength! Everything you lack is fulfilled through Christ. Everywhere you fall short, God brings you up to overflowing through Holy Spirit presence in your life.
God loves you and He’s for you! Oh the magnificent grace of God, covered in the Blood, sealed with Agape Love. His plan is for you throughout eternity! He will even guide you and show you how to enjoy full benefits of your position in Christ. Just dwell in the presence of your King and live in the Light of this wonderful Glory and Grace!
Psalm 103:2-5 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
Lamentations 3:22-23 The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning.
Philippians 4:13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
