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 circumstances will distract us from experiencing God’s timely rewards. We will not notice the gifts of His greatness because we’ve forgotten to LOOK. But God never stops working to open our eyes for 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 reward and become more aware of His blessings. Aren’t we lucky to have a Father who loves so completely and readies us to rise? Isn’t that reason enough to PRAISE Him EVERY DAY of our lives?
God is great and He is faithful. Take time to celebrate the many ways He takes care of us and those we love. If we look for the GOOD, surely, we will find it. God WILL place peace in our hearts as we receive what He provides. He loves us! He will help us experience the reward of a grateful heart.
Dear God, your love is so powerful! Thank you! You 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. Renew our hearts and help us focus on the gifts of Your greatness. Help us to remember the greatest blessings come from a grateful heart. ♥ Thank you, Lord. Thank you, so very, very much. Amen
