MORNING THOUGHTS OF GOD……………GRATITUDE

MORNING THOUGHTS OF GOD…………..GRATITUDE

“THOUGHTS………….GRATITUDE”

This morning I thought of how blessed I am to have the privilege of being one of God’s children because of my belief, faith and trust in Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord.

(John 3:16, John 14:6, John 1:12, Romans 8:16, I John 3:1)

Of how when I pray, I can call Him, the God who spoke this universe into existence by the creative power of His Word, “Father” and know that He hears my prayers.

(Galatians 4:6, Proverbs 15:29)

Of how in all of His glory, majesty, dominion, power, and holiness, He is still mindful of me and concerned about every detail of my life, even to the extent of numbering the very hairs on my head,

(Psalms 8:4, 40:5, Luke 12:7, Matthew 10:30)

Of how His grace, His divine favor and enabling power is ever present in my life to help me to do and be all that He desires me to do and be, and I do not have to rely on my limited human strength.

(Philippians 2:13, 4:13)

Of how when I sin, when I miss the mark and fall short of His standard and glory, once I confess it with a repentant heart, He forgives me and cleanses me from all unrighteousness and removes that sin as far away as the east is from the west and remembers it no more.

(Psalms 103:12, I John 1:9)

Of how when I am in need of wisdom, all I have to do is ask Him and by His Holy Spirit He freely gives it to me and lets me know how best to navigate through any circumstance.

(James 1:5)

Of how in spite of the danger and terror that plagues the earth, I can rest in knowing He is the divine protection over my life, He is my shield and my defense and His angels encamp around me to guard me.

(Psalms 34:7, Psalms 18:2, Psalms 28:7)

Of how whenever others reject me, it’s okay because I have laid hold of the truth that He accepts me through Christ and that acceptance is most important, satisfying and priceless. 

(Ephesians 1:6)

Of how He has a plan for my life and even if it does not feel like it, or even if I can not see it, He is working all things in my life together for good because I love Him and I have been called according to His divine purpose.

(Romans 8:28, Jeremiah 29:11)

Of how He formed me and knit me together in my mother’s womb and in His eyes I am a fearfully and wonderfully made designers original so the world’s standards of external beauty really do not matter.

(Psalms 139:13-16)

Of how I am never alone because His Spirit dwells within me, and He promised never to leave me nor forsake me.

(I Corinthians 3:16, James 4:5, Hebrews 13:5)

Of how He loves me with an incomprehensible, unfathomable, mind-blowing love that nothing can separate me from. 

(Romans 5:8, 8:37-39)

This morning I thought of how blessed I am to have the privilege of being one of God’s children because of my belief, faith and trust in Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord.

(Romans 8:32)

And I was overwhelmed with gratitude.

“O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever!”

Psalms 107:1, 118:1, 136:1,  – Amplified Bible

“I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.”

(Philippians 3:12-14 – The Message Bible)
