Throughout the week, I’ve been reminded that everything comes from God. Yet despite my best efforts, I’m convicted of how infrequently I thank God for all that He’s provided for me. I wouldn’t want to admit it out loud, but I get somewhat accustomed to His goodness or start to let my pride start to convince me it’s somewhat expected. After my hard work, I “earned” or “deserved” the many blessings I’ve received. I hope to instead have more of a posture like David’s in 1 Chronicles 29, as the Israelites acknowledged the beautiful temple they had just built unto God was simply giving back in a small way what He had already provided for them.
Lord, please help me see the many blessings You’ve provided in my life. Please help me grow in a posture of humility and gratitude. May I rely on You for everything, gratefully recognizing Your goodness in all things.
