Lavished upon us

Ephesians 1:8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight

Out of the abundance of all that He has (which is everything), God lavishes upon us His blessings.  He’s a loving Father who cares for His children and wants to bless them.  And He does it in all wisdom and insight.

That means that even though the all-knowing God who lives outside of time and knows everything before it happens has knowledge of our sins and disobedience, He chooses to bless us anyway. A better word than “chooses” is “chose,” because before He even created the world He had already chosen how to bless you.

He knew the choices you’d make and the sins you’d commit against Him, and still He chose to love you and bless you, to redeem you and forgive you.  If that’s not grace, then what is?  If that’s not worth your thanks, then what is?
