๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ‘‘ Are There Physical Blessings Today?

While we are primarily blessed with all spiritual blessings in the heavenlies (Eph. 1:3), God has also blessed us with physical things. The Bible that you hold in your hand is a physical book with a spiritual message.

When we observe the Lordโ€™s Supper, we are partaking of physical elements, the bread and the cup, which convey a spiritual message (I Cor. 11:23-26).

โ€œFor every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the Word of God and prayerโ€ (I Tim. 4:4,5).

The very food we eat everyday would also be classified a physical blessing. Notice that โ€œevery creature of God is goodโ€; that is, every piece of beef, chicken, pork, fish or shellfish we eat is good and not to be withheld as unclean today. Under grace, eating a ham sandwich is acceptable. Paul adds that it is set apart by God in accordance with His Word and prayer, a clear indication that we are to offer thanks to the Lord for what we have at every meal.

The apostle instructed Timothy, โ€œhaving food and raiment let us be therewith contentโ€ (I Tim. 6:8). While we are clothed spiritually in Christโ€™s righteousness, I wouldnโ€™t advise leaving home physically unclothed. Our very clothing is a physical blessing.

In the context of prayer, Paul prayed that he might have the Lordโ€™s prospering on his physical journey to visit the saints at Rome (Rom. 1:9,10). โ€œIn everything [not just some things and not just spiritual things] give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning youโ€ (I Thes. 5:18). source

For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. — Hebrews 10:30-31
