Proverbs 10: 21-22 the lips of the righteous feed many, But fools die for lack of understanding. It is the blessing of the LORD that makes rich, And He adds no sorrow to it.
Proverbs 8:21 bestowing a rich inheritance on those who love me and making their treasuries full.
The chief blessing of union with Christ is the blessing of the promises of God, for it is in Christ that all God's promises are "yea" and "amen", and when we are found in him, we become partakers of those promises (Eph. 3:6). We may well say, then, that it is on account of Christ that we enjoy all the good things God so richly bestows.
Paul begins his meditation on union with Christ in Ephesians 1 with a shout of "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!"
When found in the Vine, branches enjoy growth and produce fruit. Believers can be assured that, on the basis of their union with Christ, they will experience a long-term pattern of growth, as Christ in them conforms them to his likeness. Discipline is another of the blessings of union with Christ, as we are pruned by the Father so as to bear fruit. We also enjoy protection when found in Christ, who makes himself our shield and stronghold. Paul's wonderful description of the armour of God is truly the armour of Christ, as each piece he describes is to be found only in union with Jesus, who alone is truth and righteousness.
When we are aware of the power we wield in Christ and the dominion authority we have taken back from the devil, we can freely enjoy blessings from God, the Father of all good and perfect things whom there is no variations.
Genesis 1:27-28 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
When Adam lost the dominion blessing to Satan, (Genesis 3). Christ recovered all back through His obedience and faith in God, the glory of God comes to us through the righteous of Christ and for this reason we are joint heirs to all that the Father has through Christ that dwell in us.
Ephesians 3: 20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,
2 Corinthian 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty you might become rich.
2 Corinthian 9:7-9 Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed;
Philippians 4:19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
