Blessings of the Lord

Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah. - Psalm 68:19

Sometimes, it is easy to forget about the blessings that God bestows upon us. Chief of these is salvation, as is mentioned by the scripture above. Life is full of perplexities and complications. If we dwell these, we easily lose sight of God's blessings in the mist of our struggles.

There are many evident blessings that God gives us. For example, life, the air we breathe, etc. However, there are also those blessings that are not so evident. Remember, God has His angels around us all of the time; and we know not of their invisible protection and guidance. There is no telling how many times they have delivered us from danger or death, or have worked things out to our benefit.

With that in mind, take a few minutes out your evening to dwell upon how God has blessed you today and thank Him for it in prayer. Moreover, makes this a daily practice before you go to bed at night; and I'm sure it will help you be more cheerful and thankful, if you aren't already.

Here is my prayer for today. Maybe it will serve as an example you can use:

Father in Heaven, thank you for providing for all of my basic needs today; for making sure that I have food to eat. For my warm flat in these cold Winter months. Thank you for allowing me to have some spare time to take a walk outdoors today. To enjoy the fresh, invigorating air. Thank you for the protection and guidance of your angels. Thank you most of all, for Jesus, you Son, who gives me the hope of salvation. In His name, I pray. Amen.

The church is like a hospital, a place where people come to for healing. That's why we shouldn't be so quick to judge. Instead, we should be encouraging and helpful to each other.

What will we do in Heaven? Will we be able to high dive into the River of the Water of Life? Will we discover new life in the universe? Will we be able to fly like eagles? Will we build our ultimate dream home? Will we have exotic pets? Find out by reading this hub.

      Hello Greg,

      Thank you for this reminder of Gods Goodness and how he blesses us each and every day of our lives. Today I was blessed by the predicted rain which should have fallen today, being held off until late evening, which allowed me to get the motorhome packed up for a road trip which I begin tomorrow. A road trip which is directed by the Lord. I am shown/told where to go, but not why. Nor for how long. All I have to do is be available where Im told to be. So, if I am scarce for the next few weeks, that will be why. Some of the campsites have wireless but most do not. Thank you for this hub, dear brother, great reminder to take away with me. God Bless.

      Short and sweet Greg, sometimes the best way to get a point across. His biggest blessings often go unnoticed. That thought reminds me of the movie "It's a Wwonderful Life."
