Exodus 23:25 “Worship the Lord your God, and his blessings will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you, and none will miscarry or be barren in your land. I will give you a full life span.”
The Scene: Hands of a prospector panning, sifting sand looking for gold from a stream. Gold can be a symbol of God’s blessings to His children. The stream represents His “living water,” His Word, His promises.
Like a person looking for gold nuggets, the Lord’s children are to seek and find, daily, His blessings. The heavenly Father’s blessings are there for the seeking. When His people find His grace and blessings, they give thanks and praise to Him.
In praising, in lieu of complaining, we will find ourselves more joyful. If God’s children will make a habit of looking for His blessings daily, attitudes will be changed from being negative and depressing to attitudes of joy and peace.
Giving thanks to our Father God and His Son Jesus is pleasing to them both, as they long for our right relationship with them. That spiritual relationship can only come by listening to the Holy Spirit and doing what He says.
Ephesians 1:3-6 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.”
