Day 170- Richmond, Virginia: Thank God
Thank God for the gift of life! Thank God for the blessings that we have been given. Thank God for our friends and family whom we love so much. Thank God for allowing Jesus to die on the cross so that we may be saved from sin. Thank God for the wisdom to understand and appreciate the importance of our faith. Thank God for our children, and our children’s children. Thank God for our parents who helped bring us into this world. Thank God for the gift to share our lives with others so that they may also be saved.
We have so many things in this world to be thankful for. Are there days we forget this, of course. We are only human and we are not perfect. However, how many days do we just scream out to our Father in Heaven when we realize the importance of His presence in our lives in a positive way? There is nothing wrong with acknowledging the obvious, especially when it comes to recognizing when good things are happening all around us. There is always a reason for the season. If we choose to ignore God, how could we ever help others realize what the Word of God really means?
We have an obligation from God to share our hearts with others so that they may gain the access, as a witness, to what the manifestation of God truly means. From Psalm, “For You, O LORD, have made me glad by what You have done, I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands. How great are Your works, O LORD! Your thoughts are very deep. A senseless man has no knowledge, Nor does a stupid man understand this”. We have to be smarter than those who have come before us who did not get it. Get what? Get the fact that we are all born sinners, but through the death of Jesus on the cross we are all born again. As we shout out in thanksgiving, Hallelujah, the Lord our God hears our songs of praise! Amen.
