He or she has been given an inheritance and is a co-heir with Jesus. He or she has been given countless brothers and sisters. God has impacted the lives of others through His saints. He or she has a song in his or her heart and sometimes on his or her lips. He or she have a higher quality of life and avoid many damaging consequences of sin and find rest in God and stability in living. He or she sometimes find healing and, one day, perfect healing forever! The list could go on, but you get the picture. “Blessed (be) the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly (places) in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3). E. A. Hoffman offered praise in the hymn, “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.” Let this praise be echoed in yours, if you know the Lord: “What a fellowship, what a joy divine, leaning on the everlasting arms; what a blessedness, what a peace is mine, leaning on the everlasting arms. O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way, leaning on the everlasting arms; O how bright the path grows from day to day, leaning on the everlasting arms. What have I to dread, what have I to fear, leaning on the everlasting arms? I have blessed peace with my Lord so near, leaning on the everlasting arms. Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms; leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms.” Selah! As one gospel song puts it: “If it keeps gettin’ better and better, O Lord, I don’t know what I’m gonna do! (Gaither, I believe).   Ron
