So why don’t more people enjoy God’s blessings in their daily lives?

  • We may be ignorant of God’s promises and declarations of grace. We may not even know they exist.
  • We may be doubtful about them: can it really be true that such things belong to us already? That all we have to do is believe?
  • We may be fearful of the implications. What changes will we need to make? What will it cost us?
  • We may not be willing to risk implementing them.
  • We may be plain disobedient.
  • We may be indifferent.
  • We may be deceived into believing otherwise.
  • May be we have simply not got around to claiming them.

Which of these might apply to you right now? What can you do about it?
