Every day God gives us His blessings. He sends sunshine to keep us warm and to help plants and trees grow. God gives us air to breathe, water to drink and food to eat. Often we forget to thank God for these important things.
The writer of Ecclesiastes shares his thoughts about life in Ecclesiastes 2:24-25. “There is no one who has tried to enjoy life more than I have. And this is what I learned: The best thing people can do is eat, drink, and enjoy the work they must do. I also saw that this comes from God.” It is important that the writer realized that all these wonderful blessings come from God. This is good advice for us today.
Maybe you have problems, so you think that God is not blessing you right now. But God blesses us, even when we are facing problems. God gives us wisdom and strength to help us work through our problems. Then we can thank and praise Him.
Take time today to think about the many ways that God is blessing you. Maybe you can write down these blessings so you can read them every day. Then be sure to thank God for these blessings and praise Him!
