01/12/21 Not Worthy

READING: Genesis 32:1-35:27

Today, I look around and see God’s blessings everywhere. 

  • I’m God’s child. Forgiven and loved.  
  • I have full access to the Word of God. In my language. In my hands. Increasingly, in my mind and heart. 
  • I have the sweetest wife ever who loves me with an undying love. 
  • We have a roof over our head, food on our table, automobiles in our garage, and funds in the bank. 
  • In these crazy days of COVID, we’ve been healthy all the way through the pandemic. 
  • I have the privilege of preaching, teaching, and serving missionaries each day – all three things I LOVE to do. 
  • We have a home church we’ve grown to love deeply. 
  • I can tell story after story of God’s miraculously responding to our prayers, including His saving both my parents late in life. 
  • I know all that God has brought us through in all these years, including health scares, multiple moves, and career questions. 
  • I get to do all I do without threat on my life for my Christian stances. 
  • If I were to die today, I know without question I would be with God who loves me. 

I could review God’s goodness for weeks on end, but for this day I’m simply agreeing with Jacob’s words to God as he prepared to meet his brother, Esau: “ I am not worthy of all the unfailing love and faithfulness you have shown to me, your servant” (Gen 32:10). 

I am not worthy of all God has shown me. Amen. 

PERSONAL REFLECTION: How much time do you spend reflecting on God’s daily blessings in your life?  

TODAY’S PRAYER: “God, I have no words except ‘thank You’ today.”
