We are blessed!
God has been so good to us – all of us.
Psalm 145:9 promises us that, “The LORD is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation.”
Sometimes, it may not FEEL like you are blessed.
You may not be living in your dream house or driving a brand new car.
You may not have the job or the kids or the life that you’d like to have.
You may not be in good health at the moment.
You may have had a horrible week this last week.
And yet, you are blessed!
I am blessed!
This week, I’ve been reminded over and over to be thankful for the blessings of the Lord on my life.
I’ve got an incredible Savior, a sweet marriage, two awesome kids, a great family, breath in my lungs, lots of good friends, wonderful ministry opportunities, and so much more.
And, you could make a list as well. There are good things in your life as well.We are ALL very blessed people. Click To Tweet
Maybe you’re not convinced??
Let me share a few blessings that you and I can sometimes overlook.
Blessing One – We are blessed to serve the God that all of creation worships or one day will worship!
Then I heard every creature in Heaven and earth, in underworld and sea, join in, all voices in all places, singing:
To the One on the Throne! To the Lamb!
The blessing, the honor, the glory, the strength,
For age after age after age.
The Four Animals called out, “Oh, Yes!” The Elders fell to their knees and worshiped.(Revelation 5:13)
Blessing Two – We are blessed to serve the God of all HOPE who gives us hope and peace overflowing!
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
(Romans 15:13, NIV)
Blessing Three – We are blessed to have a God who notices all of the little details of life – even down to the smallest birds!
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
Blessing Four – We are blessed with peace by God when we are peacemakers with others.
“Great blessings belong to those who work to bring peace. God will call them his sons and daughters.”(Matthew 5:9, ESV)
Blessing Five – We are blessed with mercy when we show mercy.
Jesus taught, “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.”
Blessing Six – We are blessed when we learn to be content with what we have.
“You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.”
(Matthew 5:5, MSG)
