Today’s devotion is based on Psalm 85:12, “The Lord will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.”
When we see God blessing us, when the land yields its harvest, when we acknowledge that we have a new start because our God is gracious and merciful, then we are left with nothing but gratitude. We thank God for blessing us, even though we know we are deserving of much less. We thank God for being true to his nature and not acting according to our nature. When life is a struggle, we look expectantly to the time when our sovereign God will once again bless us.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, gracious God, creator and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen; thank you for all your blessings on us. When the going is tough, please help us wait on you, for your promises are sure. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
