(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – Isaiah 57-59 & Psalm 103 & 2 Peter 3)
“Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.” Psalm 103:2
What lessons are there for me in this Scripture?
Being thankful must be the natural response of a Godly person to everything.
Even in difficulties my thankfulness should be about the assurance that He knows me and is with me.
There are so many “easy” thanks possibilities. I have nothing good that wasn’t a gift of God.
If I forget to praise Him I start to take credit for the good things that happen. I start to think that I am somehow in control. At such moments of foolishness, I should examine what I have and as a result realize that God is part of everything. He is the Creator.
I must look around me with His eyes and ears and let the praises flow.
