Many have used the month of November to focus on being thankful. I have used the week of the Thanksgiving holiday for this, but I want to expand this year.
Some days are easier to be thankful than others. When I struggle to be thankful, I start with the fact that God saved me from my sins. Romans chapter 3 tells me that I am a sinner. In Romans 6:23, I find there is punishment for sin (death). Romans 3 also tells me that I can be justified (saved) by faith in Jesus Christ. If I continue reading Romans (10:9-10), I find that I need “to confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead”. I acknowledge my sin to God and Jesus saves me.
I am so thankful for salvation and what that means in my day to day life. Not only did God save me, but He wants to sustain me. I will share more of those items in future posts this month.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for saving me and sustaining me. You have given me so much for my life now and for eternal life. I cannot praise You enough.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
