Scripture reading: Psalm 145

Dear ones, we take the every-day things and the every-day blessings of God for granted so much. We take for granted our abilities to go and come, and to do and not to do. We rejoice in that type of freedom that we have, and never really think about the blessings that we enjoy, how they come about. We never really think about the covering and the protection that God gives to us; the very breath that we breathe.

I remember, after I was attacked by malaria and after recovering from it, I made it to the meeting for the first time and I found that I could not sing! I tried, and I could not sing! And it really touched me, and I said, “God, this is a privilege that You have given to glorify Your name. Don’t let me be robbed of this!” I just held on to faith, and sang! And my voice became stronger and stronger and stronger and stronger. I tell you, every time now that I open my mouth to sing, I praise God! I praise Him for the privilege. I praise Him for the deliverance. I praise Him for the blessing of each day. Do not ever forget that. When you get up in the morning, do not say, “Oh God! Another morning.” Say, “Thank God for today!” “Thank You, God, for today. I have come to do Your will!” Praise God! We are not our own; we are bought with a price; therefore glorify God in this temple.

Thought for today: Let us thank God for every morning He gives us and praise Him for the blessing of each day.
