In Christ, you are irreversibly blessed

November 03, 2017

“He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it.” Nu 23:20 NKJV

The Israelites conquered the Promised Land and took possession of it, one town and one city at a time. As they approached Moab, one of its princes named Balak hired a prophet named Balaam to pronounce a curse upon the advancing Israeli armies. Standing on a mountain overlooking the camp of Israel, Balak expected curses to come pouring out of Balaam’s mouth. But instead, came blessings. When he asked Balaam why, he replied: “I have received a command to bless; He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it. He has not observed iniquity in Jacob, nor has He seen wickedness in Israel. The Lord his God is with him” (vv. 20-21 NKJV). Was that because there was no “iniquity” or “wickedness” among the Israelites? No. Then how could God not see it? For the same reason He doesn’t see your faults and failings—because He has chosen to see you “in Christ” who is perfect, and whose atoning blood covers all your sins from the new birth to the new Jerusalem. When the Israelites set up camp each night, their tents formed the shape of a big cross; picture the tents of eight tribes running vertically, and four tribes running horizontally. Getting the picture? As a redeemed child of God, that’s how your Heavenly Father sees you. He looks at you—through the cross. And since the blood of Jesus paid for every sin you would ever commit, God sees you as “accepted” and “righteous” and “complete.” So the word for you today is: Because God sees you in Christ, you are irreversibly blessed.
