If you are reading this, I can safely assume you are alive today and that you have awoken. You have life and breath. It is reasonable to also hold that you have access to the wealth sufficient to have acquired the use of some manner of electronic device, and to a source of electricity. It is also probably safe to conclude that you have some level of literacy, and some leisure time to read a screen. Yes, you have blessings today. But have you said, “Thank you?”
In the words of the old hymn, “Bless God from whom all blessings flow . . . .” For most of us, in addition to the blessings above, we have some measure of health, and the majority have safe water, and something to eat. Need I go on?
God clothes the lilies of the field and feeds the sparrows. He cares for each and every one of us. A care so great, that He took it to a whole new level. John 3:16 tells us, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” God promises salvation for those who seek it. He promises His unending love. He promises us life everlasting.
Back on 22 November ’18, Dianne made a simple entry in her journal, it captured this assurance.
2 Corinthians 1:20
“For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ. And so through him the ‘Amen’ is spoken by us to the glory of God.”
God keeps all of His promises. In Christ they are a “Yes.” Let us remember to say “Thank you” and “Amen.”
