“And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Now to our God and Father be the glory forever and ever. Amen” (Philippians 4:19-20).
Has the Lord provided for your every need? Of course He has, but do you give thanks? We can become wrapped up in our own thoughts and ambitions such that we do not give thanks to the One who makes all things possible. Have an attitude of gratitude. Be led by the Lord and no one else, not even yourself. Know that He who formed you in your mother’s womb knows who you are and what you need.
Lord, teach me to be thankful in all circumstances. Guide me according to Your goodness to see that only in You is there hope and a future. Let me not be carried away with my selfish thoughts, but look to You, the author and finisher of my faith, to guide me in my thinking. Guide me this day and every day in the truth of Your love and mercy. Let me learn from You, and in all circumstances to rejoice and give thanks for Your goodness.
Lord Jesus, while I did not care about these things, You were giving me all that I needed. When I did not know what I needed, You provided. You know me better than I know myself and You know all that is needed. Guide me, dear Lord, so that I may walk the path You set before me and give thanks for all Your benefits. Grant that I have a thankful heart now and forever. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
