Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, I come to thank You for blessing me with good and perfect gifts. James 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” It is a blessing to know when difficulties and trials come that You have not changed but are still good. You are still and always will be the source of all good.
Direct me to have the ability to recognize and praise You for all the good things coming from You–mercy, grace, compassion, kindness, peace, wisdom, love, etc. Thank you that You always have a plan for whatever happens in my life. Even when I can’t begin to comprehend and understand the situation. Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
Give me an understanding and appreciation of Your amazing gift of creation, how precisely everything works together in perfect timing not only for human beings, but also for all the animals and plants on the earth. Thank you for the blessings You have stored up for all of us that worship You and come to You to escape the unkind world. Psalm 31:19 “Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear [honor and respect] You, which You have prepared for those who trust in You in the presence of the sons of men!” I honor You with gratitude for all that You are and do. Amen.
