Today's devotion is based on Psalm 103:1,2 "Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all His benefits."
The list of God's blessings is endless. First, there are the "small" blessings in life: food, clothing, shelter, air to breath, a spouse's love, a child's laughter, friendship, good health. Praise the Lord for all these benefits!
Then there are the really "big" blessings that God gives us: forgiveness for our sins, angels who guard and protect us daily, the privilege of going directly to God in prayer, the sure hope of eternal life in heaven one day, confidence in the resurrection of the body at the end of time. Praise the Lord for all these blessings!
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, gracious God, creator and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, how great you are! You have showered upon me more benefits and blessings than I deserve. Help me say "thank you" to you by living my life in ways that bring you praise and worship. Amen.
