Count Your Many Blessings

Words from Jeremiah 31:14, became part of a new song that bubbled up as I fixed breakfast. It says, “I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance, and My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the Lord.”

Satiate means to fill to the full. Are you consciously grateful for the fullness of His goodness? Psalm 34:8 says, “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!”

Taste is an interesting word. I’ve been experimenting with a breakfast dish. I’ve made it three times now, and each time I consider the taste. How can I make it more satisfying? Tasting of the Lord’s goodness requires a heart that embraces all the trials and hardships that He has allowed to take place.

Psalm 145:9 says, “The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works.” I savor David’s words of tender mercies. We could stroll down the hallway of the lives of countless folks who turned to the Lord through blessings disguised as tragedies. 

I know that I was never the same after I fell into the ravine. The Lord used that event to woo me into intimate communion with Him. I’m sure you have your own stories ~ how He turned something catastrophic into an enriching blessing.

We are at the end of another year. Only the Lord knows what lies ahead. Let us savor His goodness as we face the unknown. Let us drink deep of His river of pleasures, delight in Him as our Source of Strength, and sing praises that glorify Him throughout our day.
