Re:Verse passage – James 5:19-20 (day four)

Today, we are pressing the pause button on Re:Verse…our hearts are hopefully turned to Thanksgiving.  In our nation’s history, the pilgrims recognized God’s hand in delivering them from starvation and death.  Their hearts were turned in gratefulness to Him.  We have seen God’s guiding hand of provision all through the past 450 years since.  In more recent days, each of us can look back over our individual lives and see the hand of God at work.  When we see all that He has done, how can we not be moved to gratitude?

As you sit down today before a feast of food, pause to reflect on the specific blessings you can see in your life…life itself, family and friends, health and happiness, food and provision, shelter and protection, joy and peace of heart, guidance and wisdom, love and security.  God’s richest blessings are ours.  We sometimes fail to see these blessings because we use the wrong measuring stick to measure them.  Psalm 95:1-7a establishes the standard that should govern our lives!  Count your Blessings!
