 Thought For Today - January 17

    "Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation." Psalm 68: 19
    We ought always be mindful of all the mercy and grace of our father in heaven who daily loads us with benefits, yet we are so prone to accept the blessings of God as a matter of course, and take them for granted.
       In all that we do, whether it be cleaning our houses, washing our clothes, preparing meals, caring for our children, or providing the family income; we ought always whisper a prayer of gratitude to our heavenly father through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, thanking him for our comfortable home, the clothes that we wear, the fellowship and companionship that we have with our life's companion, the wonderful children he has given us, and the money he allows us to obtain to meet our needs. We could go on endlessly enumerating things that God blesses us with daily. Someone has said that God's future blessings come to us in proportion to our heart felt gratitude to him for all his past and present blessings.
    How grateful we ought to be for the fact that we who once were sinners and separated from God because of our sins, have been reconciled to God our father through his son, our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
    "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23 But! "God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16.  Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures, he was buried and rose again the third day according to the scriptures." 1 Corinthians chapter 15.
    "We have not followed cunningly devised fables." 2Peter 1:16.  Christ showed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them ( the apostles) and expounding to them the things of the kingdom of God after his resurrection.  "And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: after that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain unto this present time, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles, and last of all he was seen of me also, as one born out of due time." 1 Corinthians 15:5-8
    "Bless the Lord, oh my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, oh my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases, who redeemeth thy life from destruction, who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies, who satisfieth thy mouth with good things, so that thy youth is renewed like the eagles." Psalm 103: 1-5
    "What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord. I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in the presence of all his people." Psalm 116: 12-14
    "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service, and be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God" Romans 12: 1-2

Let us count all our blessings and name them one by one, give God the Glory and thank him for them.
