April 9, 2019 DON’T TAKE IT FOR GRANTED
If we were to make a list right now of our blessings, we would be writing for a while. We have so many great things from God. Just the list of what He created is overwhelming when we really think about it. There are so many great things in this world. And they all come from God. Just look around! We need to have an attitude of gratitude in all things. We need to believe God created all things for His purpose and for us because He knew His plan was good for us. We shouldn’t ever take that for granted. Ever.
1 Timothy 4:4-5 “Since everything God created is good, we should not reject any of it but receive it with thanks. For we know it is made acceptable by the word of God and prayer.” (NLT)
1. Write about what is around you right now.
2. List some things you make take for granted that God created.
3. Know God wants you to remember all He created is good.
4. Thank Him daily for the blessings He has given to you.
Dear Lord, thank You for all You have created. Thank You for the perfect plan You have for us. We know all You have created is good. Help us to remember not to reject it but receive it with thanks – everyday. We know all You have given to us is just what we need. Help us to stop searching in other places for the things You have created for us but to know what You created is good and it is all we need. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
We were created to believe in God, enjoy this earth He created, love others and be thankful for all He has done.
Ephesians 2:10 “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (NLT)
James 1:17 “Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.” (NLT)
Psalm 104:24 “O Lord, what a variety of things you have made! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of your creatures.” (NLT)
We need to remember God created all we have and be thankful!
Genesis 1:31a “Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was very good!” (NLT)
