Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 01/10/16

This week’s scripture is from Ecclesiastes:

Jesus Christ -- Heinrich Hofmann“Consider what God has done …”   (Eccl. 7:13)

A new year has turned and the days stretch out before us like a blanket full of hope and dreams. Perhaps we look with anticipation at the days ahead and wonder what is to come. We hope for good days and peaceful nights, but let us first take some time to remember what the Lord as done for us before we forge ahead. Let us remember all the ways the Lord has blessed us in the past.

Let us remember what those blessings were and how He provided for us, how He healed us or took care of us, how He made a way where there was no way, how He comforted us in our time of despair or need, for the Lord is ever pouring out His blessings upon us, never leaving us or forsaking us, always true to His word. Let us take some time to remember, and to thank and praise the Lord, for He is a good God, and we are His people.

May the Lord remind you of His blessings and His love for you.
