God gives you....

Sometimes I get overwhelmed by all that God has given me. Instead of praying for the 'things' I need or 'stuff' I'd like to see happen, it's good for my soul simply to reflect or meditate on how much God has blessed me already and how amazing He is! Below are a few verses to think about and I encourage you to spend at least 5 minutes today on the practical at the end. :)

God gives you...

Job 33:4 “The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”

Deuteronomy 8:18 But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth…”

Sanctuary and relief  
Ezra 9:8 “But now, for a brief moment, the LORD our God has been gracious in leaving us a remnant and giving us a firm place in his sanctuary, and so our God gives light to our eyes and a little relief in our bondage.”

Micah 7:18-19Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.”

Endurance and encouragement
Romans 15:5 “May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus…”

1 Corinthians 15:57 “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

James 1:5 “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” God gives all He has to you!

Practical: Take a moment and imagine that everything you own, both large and tiny; all the activities you get to do and everyone important in your life suddenly have a gift tag attached to them that reads: ‘From God, with love’

You are immeasurably cared for and blessed - - may you be overwhelmed by this fact!
