2 Samuel 22:31-37
“As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him. For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You give me your shield of victory; you stoop down to make me great. You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn.”
It is God who blesses us with all good things. It’s always the right day to give thanks for the beautiful sunrise, for that parking spot close to the door, and for the the large tax refund. A prayer of thanksgiving is always appropriate when you see the night sky that seems to stretch on and on forever before you, taking your breath away.
Most people are so ungrateful to God. Something big has got to happen to them in order for them to praise the Lord. We need to learn to praise Him for all things, big and small. We need to acknowledge that He is our victory in every problem and situation that arises. It is the Lord who guides us forward down the clear, broad path at our feet.
All these things and more come from our heavenly Father. Take the time today to thank Him for some things you don’t usually think of throughout the day. It will make the day ahead that much more awesome.
