“I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” Psalms 9:1.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; 1 Samuel 17, Psalm 9, and Matthew 2.
If we’re willing to tell, He will give us plenty to tell about! We need to see what we’re missing.
How closely do we look (and admire) what He has given us? In the space where you are sitting, do you see all the things He has given you? On my desk, I have (among other things); a light, a Bible, a camera, my wallet, my car keys, a cell phone, a savings account book, and Tim Keller’s “God’s Wisdom for Navigating Life.” Every one of those items has the ingredients of a God’s blessing story.
He has been good to us. Is everything as good as we might like it to be? The issue there is that we foolishly try to decide what “good” is for us. We do not know what’s best.
We are so conscious of what we don’t have, that we don’t have time to generate excitement about what we do have. And that’s wrong!
My time on earth is short. Do I have the next minute? I do not know. Therefore, as the song goes, “His praise must ever be on my lips.”
“Lord, You have blessed me mightily. None of it has been deserved. I am a sinner, yet Your Love has overwhelmed treating me justly. I cling to You and thank You for saving me from the consequences of my sinfulness. What a Savior!”
Are His praises ever on your lips?
