Blessings From God We Often Forget To Thank Him For
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits (Psalm 103:2).
Our national Thanksgiving holiday is this month. Yet, for the Christ-follower, every day should consist of expressions of gratitude to the Lord. As you reflect on God’s goodness, you have many blessings to be thankful for. Consider adding these seven items to your lists of things to thank the Lord for this month, and throughout the year.
The Gift of Life
For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light (Psalm 36:9).
The Bible in Our Own Language
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path (Psalm 119:105).
The Holy Spirit
Guard, through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, the treasure which has been entrusted to you
(2 Timothy 1:14).
Prayer – being able to talk to God anytime, anywhere
Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be made full (John 16:24).
As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God (1 Peter 4:10).
Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your body and refreshment to your bones (Proverbs 3:7-8).
Hope For a Better Life in Heaven
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us (Romans 8:18).
As you thank God for the many blessings He has graciously bestowed on you, may your list continue to expand.
