“Know that the Lord, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture” Psalm 100:3, NKJV.
When you look around and observe what you have. When you consider your health and the family you enjoy, it is all because of Him.
It was the Lord that blessed you with it. It will be the Lord that continues to bless you with it. You do well on your in your craft because He gave, and gives you what’s required to excel. You didn’t make it through the rough times of life on your own. Jesus carried you through them, and He will always be carrying you. You overcome because of the Lord. You never have and never will be able to do any of these things apart from the mercy and grace of God.
Never forget that it is the Lord’s doing and not your own. Always let it stand alone as being marvelous in your eyes and cause praise to continue to erupt from your mouth. Let it cause a continual voice and attitude of thanksgiving to Him. Let it bring a response of what can I do for You God, because of all You have done for me.
Give no one the credit. Give no one the honor. This will keep you humble, gladly serving Him all your days. It is your reasonable service.
Prayer: Father, I take no credit. I dare not take any praise. I am blessed because of You. I am free because of You! You carried me and You carry me. It’s You that provided that open door. It is You that kept me and You are keeping me. I thank You for being rich in mercy and grace toward me. What can I do for You. I will never forget it is because of You! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
