Scripture

 

“The earth has yielded its increase; God, our God, has blessed us.” Psalm 67:6

 

Reflections

 

It takes eyes of faith to see what God is doing.

 

Trees bring forth fruit.  Crops grow and are harvested for food.  Cows produce milk.  Fresh water flows from streams.  To some, it may just be some random phenomenon that has nothing to do with God.  To those of faith, it is the work of God.

 

With eyes of faith, we see the goodness of God all around us.  God blesses us in so many ways.  It is not accidental.  It is the work of our loving God.  He cares for us.

 

When life is going well, we do well to remember the source of all good, our loving heavenly Father.  When life is not going well, we do well to remember that this chapter of life is but a moment.  God will prove his goodness when all is said and done.

 

We see the goodness of God and we are left with thankful hearts.  He takes great delight in us when we turn to him and acknowledge what he has done for us.

 

God’s blessed us in both great and small.  What ways are you seeing that today?

 

Prayer

 

Lord God, thank you for blessing me in so many ways.  As you have been a blessing to me, so too, use me to be a blessing to others.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
