Blessed Day

Did you have a a blessed day today? If you made it through the day, then you most assuredly have had a blessed day. However, have you made it a point to thank the Lord for the grace that produced such a blessed day? I hope we all can say, “Yes, Yes, We have taken the time to pray and thank the Lord.” The Psalmist said, “This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24). Jesus tells us that without Him we can do nothing; that is do nothing this is good and right. Then Paul tell us that we can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth us is Phil. 4:13. We need Jesus and His grace each and every day of our lives, and He has promised to supply all our needs but not our wants. Paul said, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 4:19). The first day of the week is a glorious day to go into the house of God to worship and praise His holy name. Were you able to attend? Thank the Lord that you were able because that is also by His grace. Think of how many of God’s children would love to have such a blessed day to go into the house of God but were not able and are confined to home and Nursing Homes. This should make us all more thankful for the blessings of the worship day of the first day of the week. I try to make it a daily ritual to thank the Lord at the close of the day for the grace to make it through another day. The day might have not gone exactly like I would have preferred, but I made it through by His grace. Paul was a great preacher, but He always gave the credit to God ‘s grace. He tells us in I Cor. 15:10, “But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.” Have a blessed day and don’t forget to thank the Lord. Amen!–January 29, 2012–Elder Larry Wise
