Counting Our Blessings
Great are you Lord, great are you Lord, great are you Lord, great are you Lord! Be magnified Oh Lord, you who have done great things, we praise your Holy name. You are good and your mercies endures forever. Thank you for imputing righteousness unto us. Thank you for not judging us according to our ways. Thank you for saving us, your beloved Children, the seed of your friend Abraham. We praise you Oh Lord, Our God.
Friends, only when we take stock do we see and realize that we are blessed more than we acknowledge. The Lord has been good to us all. He restrained the hand of the wicked, He shielded, healed, protected, provided, corrected, sustained, withheld that which will harm us and rebuked wicked lips, storms, wind and all sort that would have swallowed us up.
Whatever state of mind you’re in right now friends, remember one thing, you are here right now alive, give God some praise and see the transformation that comes of it. It could have been worst but for the Lord’s quick intervention. Praise God for His faithfulness!!
Psalms 75:1 We praise you, God,
we praise you, for your Name is near;
people tell of your wonderful deeds.
2 You say, “I choose the appointed time;
it is I who judge with equity.
3 When the earth and all its people quake,
it is I who hold its pillars firm.
4 To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’
and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns.
5 Do not lift your horns against heaven;
do not speak so defiantly.’”
6 No one from the east or the west
or from the desert can exalt themselves.
7 It is God who judges:
He brings one down, he exalts another.
8 In the hand of the Lord is a cup
full of foaming wine mixed with spices;
he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth
drink it down to its very dregs.
9 As for me, I will declare this forever;
I will sing praise to the God of Jacob,
10 who says, “I will cut off the horns of all the wicked,
but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.”
