Thought of the Day November 21, 2017 Gratitude for God' providential care

By 9:35 AM

God has blessed in many ways that we take for granted.
For his providence and care: what we see and what we do not even know--"You have visited the land and watered it; greatly have you enriched it. God's watercourses are filled; you have prepared the grain. Thus, have you prepared the land; drenching its furrows, breaking up its clods, Softening it with showers, blessing its yield. You have crowned the year with your bounty, and your paths overflow with a rich harvest" Ps 65 10-12

Thank you, Lord, for the good harvest we have had over the years. Though we faced the possibility of an extended war around the world and the lost of many lives, thank you, Lord, for the safe return of our men and women; Though we are experiencing in some places a period of recession causing economic hardships for many in our nation and in the world, can we thank God now for the ways he will provide for us before he does, because of his proven faithfulness?

Can we in good times and bad have the attitude of the prophet Habakkuk? "For though the fig tree blossom not nor fruit be on the vines, Though the yield of the olive fail and the terraces produce no nourishment, Though the flocks disappear from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls. Yet will I rejoice in the Lord and exult in my saving God. God, my Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet swift as those of hinds and enables me to upon the heights." Hab 3:17-19
