Thanking God

Thank the Lord each day for His gifts to you.

We too often take for granted the fact that God is always with us. His protection is constant; His comfort is ever-present. Wouldn’t it be tragic if God remembered to attend to us only as often as we remembered to be thankful to Him.

Make it a regular part of your life to thank the Lord for His continuing mercies. Mealtime is a great way to remember. Saying a prayer over your food isn’t really required. (It doesn’t sterilize the food or give it a nutritional boost.) But since you remember to eat several times a day, take that opportunity to spend a minute or two acknowledging God’s importance in your life.

God wouldn’t let a moment go by without thinking of you. Try not to let a meal go by without thinking of Him.

“When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you…. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.” Isaiah 43:2-3
