Praise the Lord
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17 (NIV)
Every truly good thing that happens to us is a gift from God that deserves our acknowledgement and praise. When a righteous blessing comes our way, whether as an answer to prayer or an unexpected present, let that be a call to to give our Lord thanks. As followers of the Lord we ought to be looking for reasons to publicly praise His goodness toward us.
Everything that works out for our good, all things that bless us, and each time we have the mercy of the Lord it is a gift from God. Let us look for God’s goodness in our lives and let us count His blessings one by one that we have reason to praise the Lord!
Let’s pray today that we may be quicker to acknowledge our God before others in our words.
