Our Many Blessings

The great economic and material prosperity we are enjoying in the United States today is a gift of God’s hand. The Bible tells us that the very goodness of God should lead us to repentance. All of these material blessings are gifts from God, given in order that we might humble ourselves, fall upon our knees before Him, and call upon His name. We should thank God, too, for the spiritual blessings that are beyond the power of the human tongue to describe.

Here in North America we still have freedom of worship. In many parts of the world believers cannot assemble together; they cannot speak of their religious convictions because of totalitarian power. Here in North America we have Bibles everywhere. We have the opportunity to preach. God has blessed us with a thousand and one spiritual blessings. In days of uncertainty and confusion, such as we are now passing through, these are gifts that go beyond our power to understand; and yet they are gifts of God that become ours when we receive His Son as our Savior and Lord.

Should we be thankful even in the hard times? Read Billy Graham’s response.

Prayer for the day

Almighty God, I thank You for all the blessings You shower upon this land—and I would thank You especially for my freedom to worship You and read my Bible, without fear of persecution.

    Where does one begin to thank God for all his countless blessings. Every one of them come from him. Unfortunately far too often we take these blessings for granted. Thank you Lord for your amazing Grace.

    The Lord encourages us to remember that as we obey His word, we can depend on His faithful care for all that lies ahead. Glory to God! Amen.

    Thank you! The Lord has reached out to me to let everyone know of Franklin Graham on FaceBook this coming Monday. I emailed with as many people I knew. I also texted like you wouldn’t believe. My phone was a gift from God. I text to people that need God in their lives to always have hope and above all…TRUTH and always BELIEVE in your heart of all the goodness of God as He so loves His children. My whole life has changed and it’s all because of God who’s showing me the way..His way. I pray everywhere and for everybody. I cry for those who are hurting and need a lending ear. I help wherever I’m called to. Peace Be to God

    I have posted on FB already because I felt the call from God for me to speak, and I listened to his call. With all jokes on FB aside, I reached out to everyone that America is in trouble and we now stand at God’s mercy. I posted publicly that it is not beyond me to bow down to God to ask for deliverance and I posted it is crucial… To God, for we in America beg for forgiveness and pray … It is time to pray.
