Do Some Counting Today!

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! (Psalm 139:17)

Often I become so immersed in things I haven’t finished or things I don’t have that I fail to see all the good things around me. I have forgotten to count the new friends made this year and the answered prayers received, the tears of joy shed and the times of laughter with good friends.

My ten fingers are not enough to count all that God gives me day by day. “Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered” (Ps. 40:5). How can we even begin to count all the blessings of salvation, reconciliation, and eternal life?

Let us join David as he praises God for all His precious thoughts about us and all He has done for us, when he says, “How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee” (139:17–18).

Let’s learn to count again!

Lord, Your works are so many and good I can’t count them all. But I thank You for each one. Amen.
This blessed me this morning when I read it because I woke this morning with unknowns in my life as I’m certain most everyone did as well but one thing I do know is how much God has done for me and how He deserves the glory and the honor and the praise. I needed to be reminded today of this very point, If I should count all the blessings in my life, they are more in number than the sand. Wow! That’s huge. I have so much to be grateful for. May I never take for granted God’s goodness, I’m going to do some counting today! 
Have a wonderful day in The Lord!
