Blessed by God: Beyond Human Understanding

thanks to God for blessings

Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise;
give thanks to Him and praise His name. (Psalm 100:4)
AMEN! AND AMEN! AND AMEN!

Gratitude, appreciation, obligation, indebtedness, thanks… How can what we express ever be enough for what God gives to us:

Love beyond our capability: Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His love endures forever. (Psalm 107:1)

Gifts beyond our asking: Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17)

Peace beyond our conception: Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.(John14:27)                                                                                                                             

Strength beyond our capacity: I can do all this through Him who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:13) 

Forgiveness beyond our expectation: If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. ( 1 John 1:9)

Salvation beyond our understanding: For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

Grace beyond our worth: For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— (Ephesians 2:8)

Eternal life beyond our mortal grasp: And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. (Revelation 21:4)

Thanksgiving and Praise to Our Lord, Our Savior, Our Father:
I will give thanks to the LORD because of His righteousness;
I will sing the praises of the name of the LORD Most High. (Psalm 7:17)

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. (Colossians 3:17)

Let us daily remember to Whom we owe our thanks and praise for the blessings we have.
