COUNT YOUR MANY BLESSINGS
THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE MANY PEOPLE WE HELP
AT OUR MISSION
THAT COUNTS HIS BLESSINGS DAILY FOR THE FOOD AND SUPPLIES THAT GOD PROVIDES
Bless the Lord O my soul and all that is within me
bless his holy name, not all His benefits who forgives all your iniquities, who
heals all your disease, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you
with loving kindness and tender mercies who satisfies your soul and brings good
things to your life.
the chorus of an old hymn, Christians are told to count your blessing and name
them 1 by 1. Count your many blessings
se what God has done. Unfortunately most
people today are remiss in counting their blessings. Sometimes when I am in
deep prayer the spirit of God will teach me and say to me daughter, “Even
Christians who are busy with every day living they tend to pray and forget to
give God thanks for all their blessings”
They don’t take time to notice or even thank God for all their
blessings. The truth of the matter is we
often spend more time talking about what we do not have instead of giving
thanks to god for what we do have. All too
often we are tempted to complain, we simply need to stop for a moment and
remember everything god has done for us then we will see that we have a lot to
be thankful for. King David constantly
gives thanks to the lord for all his goodness.
He wrote many of the psalms in the darkest times of his life. Yet his passages continually express his
thankfulness to the Lord. For example David
wrote Psalms 103 after
receiving God’s merciful intervention during a dangerous time in his life. In verse 2 of Psalms David reminds his soul,
his mind, his will, and his emotions to forget not all the Lord’s
benefits. Let us take heed and do the
same and remind each other to not forget what God has done and look to his word
in Psalms 103.
Five things to never forget
God is a God of beneficiaries
God has forgiven or iniquities
God heals all our disease (Mat 8:2, 3)
God redeemed our life from destruction (Psalms 103:4)
God crowned us with loving kindness and tender mercies
God satisfies us with good things so that is our reward
FAITH IN ACTION FORGET NOT….
How do you remember to count your blessings? Here are a couple of pointers to help you to
be mindful to be blessed by the Lord.
yourself up to bless the Lord.
During the times when you least feel like praising God your can
stir yourself up and bless the Lord.
Lift up your voice and thank God for everything he has done in your
life. Have you ever noticed that
dogs shake themselves to help them wake up from a deep sleep or nap? You need to shake your worries, concerns
and fears, speak faith and begin to praise God. You need to make up your mind and
concentrate on all the blessing of God.
allow your praise to be ritualistic.
You may be in the habit of getting up early everyday and spending
time with God but you actually seek the face of God to come into his
presence with a fleshly attitude each time by saying exactly the same
thing everyday. You need to let your praise bubble up from deep within
your heart. It’s the praise that
comes from deep within your heart that counts. I pray that we as people of God can
reach the destination of God by counting our blessings one by one.
