Isn’t it fascinating that a secular definition of the word blessed is “made holy; consecrated.” It seems the whole world really knows, even deep down, that blessings are from God.
Psalm 107:1 says, "Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever."
As we focus on thankfulness and blessing this week, in this season of Thanksgiving, we are instructed to actually thank God for the ways in which He has blessed us. There are too many to count!
The psalm tells us several things at once. Mediate on each one.
We are to give thanks.
He is good.
His love for us is eternal.
That’s quite a good God.
Whatever our Creator blesses us with is holy. Unblemished. Our blessings come from a pure heart that wants what is good for us. This is really important to remember all the time, especially when life is difficult.
If you are in that season, stop what you’re doing—even for two minutes—and really think about all the ways you are blessed. If you are in financial difficulties, do you have enough to eat? If your health isn’t the greatest, do you have medicine, and doctors to help?
There are dozens of blessings staring us in the face every single day.
Think about that.
Let’s pray. Lord, you shower us with blessing; help us to remember to give thanks to you, our Source. Thank you! Amen.
