Reflections *15 – To God, Thanks is due

For mothers love and Fathers care
For food to eat and clothes to wear
For home and friend and answered prayer
I thank thee Lord
But most of all my thanks shall be
That on the cross of Calvary
The Saviour gave His life for me
I thank thee Lord.

An old Story: A little boy was so happy after drinking a glass of cold water on a hot day that he impulsively thanked the glass. ‘Don’t thank me ‘said the glass thank the tap where I came from’. So he thanked the tap and the tap said ‘Don’t thank me, thank the well and so he did that. Now the well replied ‘You should thank the rain and not me’ So he thanked the rain and the rain said ‘Thank the clouds and not me’. The clouds said ‘Thank the sun’ the sun said ‘Thank the ocean’ The ocean said ‘Thank the one who made me, the sun, the clouds, the rain, the well, and the man who made the tap and the glass’. Now the boy realized that everything he had came from God, and he profusely thanked God with all His heart.

God has innumerable ways to help us and reach us, but He is the source of all blessings. Many a times we thank the seen giver, but forget the unseen giver. Behind everything is the heart of our Loving Abba Father who longs to keep on blessing us as we keep on asking Him. Hallelujah!

Prayer: (Go through your life and thank Him with all you heart for His goodness and all that He has bountifully given you and experience His peace)

The Bible says in Rom 8:32 Since God did not spare even his own son but gave him up for us all, won’t God, who gave us Christ, also give us everything else?

THE BIBLE: Read it everyday. It records all the victories that God has given you as a believer. Read it passionately to know your new position and inheritance in Christ.
