Blessings of the Lord
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.
