Day 4- Count your blessings
1 Thessalonians 5:18
Song extract “You walked with me on the mountain top lord, you’ve never failed me”
God faithfulness is a theme that seems to be of relevance when things are not going the way we expect and we are to be reminded of His faithfulness. God’s faithfulness is mostly appreciated when his intervention comes to end a season of trails. In those times, we tend to appreciate and celebrate His faithfulness. Often times, we fail to notice or appreciate the faithfulness of God in things that have never been an issue in our lives, in things are going right for us or when we are on the mountain top.
Most times though we are simultaneously on a mountain top in one area of our life and in the valley low in another area of our life. Human nature tend to focus less on things going right and we fail to celebrate God for his faithfulness in the areas of our life where we are not struggling.
So many times I failed to recognize how God has kept me up on the mountain in many areas of my life. I would thank him for the day and thank him for my life but I would then focus on those areas where it seems I’m not having winnings. I failed to celebrate God and notice his faithfulness in many other aspects of my life.
When we take time to intentionally acknowledge and celebrate God’s faithfulness when things seem to be going « naturally right », it does not only glorify God, it unlocks faith and strength in us and reminds us that God who accomplished those things in one aspect is not blind to the other aspects of our lives.
Would you take some times today to acknowledge God’s ever presence and faithfulness in your life? Would you take some time today to count all your many blessings? Would you name them one by one and see what God has done?
