Power for Today

From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another (John 1:16, NIV)

Each time I run an errand, my "To Do" list goes with me. If I leave the house without that list, I will forget something. When I travel, out comes the list of things to pack it helps to jog my memory.

These other lists come to mind: party invitees, society's "A" list, "Who's Who," grocery items, ingredients in products, best-selling books or movies, classified advertisements, Santa's "naughty and nice" list, etc. You can think of many more and how they enhance or affect our every day lives.

God's Word lists commandments, miracles, parables, plagues, and stories and teachings for our edification. The book of Revelation refers to the Lamb's book of life and the names that are in it.

Do we count our blessings? Sometimes we forget to do that. We could all come up with quite a list, as we remember how much God has richly blessed us. Make a list!

Heavenly Father, we thank You for every blessing we have our list is long. In Jesus' name. Amen.
