Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and He will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3: 5-6
There will be moments when PRAISE will come; expressions of thankfulness for all God provides. But there will also be moments we won’t feel His timely rewards or experience the gifts of His greatness. We will need to be reminded God IS with us. He never stops working to open our eyes so we will witness His blessings.
The Bible says, Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. Psalm 51: 10 NLT Sometimes we need to have a thorough cleaning so God will renew the love of our faithfulness. He knows our thoughts and has the authority to do great things.
As our hearts are humbled for His, we begin to understand the power of His plan. We trust Him without expecting a reward and become more aware of His many blessings. Aren’t we lucky to have a Father who loves so completely and blesses us EVERY day, simply by opening our eyes each morning ready to rise? This is reason enough to gratefully praise Him EVERY DAY of our lives.
Dear God, Your love is so powerful! Thank you! You know how to open our eyes and help us see the many blessings You provide. YOU are deserving of our love and praise! Forgive us when we forget who is working for the good every single day. Renew our hearts and help us focus on the gifts of Your greatness. And help us to remember why the greatest blessings will always come from a grateful heart. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, so very, very much. Amen
