(Psalm 68:19) says “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, Even the God of our salvation. Selah.”
Those of us who do know our God also understand that we have been given a great benefits package as a result of salvation. We often don’t realize what a great package of benefits we have and it can lead to us to not be as thankful as we should be. Some of the benefits that God has given us are power, the ability to love and receive love and a sound mind. He has given us peace in the midst of stormy situations in our lives, and peace of mind is not something many people have. He has given us meaningful relationships; thus, to have someone to hold you; pray for you; encourage you and tell you that it’s going to be alright is not to be taken for granted.
He has allowed many of us to stay employed in the midst of a tough economy, and even if some of us have lost our jobs, God has made a way to sustain us in the midst of those difficult and uncertain times. He has given us life, health and strength so that we might be able to get up and go to our place of employment, bring home a few dollars so we can keep the lights on, a roof over our heads and a little something on the dinner table. Finally, He has given us his son Jesus as our Lord and savior and that was more than enough because in Him we have been given all to sustain life; in him we have been given a provider; in him we have been given a strong tower. Thus, this benefits package is second to none and if we live right heaven is our final resting place.
God Bless You
