A continuation of our thoughts on thanksgiving....
Ephesians 1:3, 7, 11-12 HCSB
Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavens. We have redemption in Him through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace We have also received an inheritance in Him, predestined according to the purpose of the One who works out everything in agreement with the decision of His will, so that we who had already put our hope in the Messiah might bring praise to His glory.
We cherish the times when our children express their love to us. Whether it is an "I wuv you, Mommy" or an "I wike your dwess", it always warms my heart.
I think that it is the same way for God. He is so great and has done so many mighty things for us and we are mere dust in comparison to Him. Yet He loves and wants to hear our praise and adoration for Him. He has blessed us with so much, we should be bursting with thankfulness and praise! Just read Ephesians 1:3-14, and look at the descriptive words in that passage that talk about what God has done! Let's take conscious time today to bless, praise, and thank our Heavenly Father. Will you join me?
Thank you, Father God, for all the spiritual blessings that You have given to me today. I want to bring praise to Your Glory today. You have done so much for me, and when I really stop and think about it, I can't help but adore, honor, and praise You, for You alone are worthy! In Jesus' name, Amen.
