11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless. Psalm 84:11
This is an awesome, encouraging verse, isn’t it? The Lord, in His infinite wisdom, knows what’s best for us. Sometimes, though, we don’t always recognize the favor and honor He gives us. We take it for granted.
I was listening to a secular podcast today, and one of the things that this man told his listeners to do was to stay encouraged and upbeat was to write down 10 things you were thankful for. It surprised me because it’s something we might say because its effects are obvious.
So, before you get started with the day, write down 10 things you know God has favored you with this past week. Thank Him for them.
