I know that we are closer to the end of the year and we have been hearing a lot about gratitude and thanksgiving.
But do we get to give Him enough?.
While I was thinking and reflecting on what to write this week, this theme came to mind. More thanks!
Yes, we can never get to give Him enough thanks when we look at all He has done for us so far in the year and even in our respective lifetimes.
God has been faithful and not only that but also committed to us and our grooming and growth.
The earlier we look at it from this perspective, the more grateful we would become knowing that He is very committed to us. And one of these examples is what we celebrate right now – “Christmas”
God being deliberate about us, “gave” us His only begotten son. He gave us Himself and shouldered all the backlash that should have been ours to bear.
For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) He shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.
John 3:16 AMPC
And even now, He still cares so much for you and me. As He is still saying to us – “Come unto me…”
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.] For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good–not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.
Matthew 11:28, 30 AMPC
He just never gets tired of bearing and carrying us. Indeed our God is good. And yes let’s celebrate this Christmas with more thanks. More than we would have ever thought of. Because this Abba, who is our Father has been so good to you and me.
May His word cause our heart to see from this perspective and hence give Him more thanks than we have ever done. Amen. 🙏
Happy new week. 🤗
Merry Christmas!!! 🎄⛄🎄
