|Today’s Scripture: Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth. Psalm 115:15|
|Take a moment to reflect upon the words in this song:
When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
When you look at others with their lands and gold,
So, amid the conflict, whether great or small,
No matter what we’re facing in this life, we can have hope by being reminded of God’s goodness to us. If we would try to think of all the blessings we have, there is no way we could ever come close to all the Lord has done for us. Psalms declares, “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits.” (Psalm 68:19) We are also told that God’s thoughts toward us “are more than can be numbered.”(Psalm 40:5)
He has blessed us beyond our comprehension, so when you’re tempted to dwell on the problems you are facing, think of all the problems He has brought you through. Count your many blessings, and you will see what God has done.
