________________________________________________________________________________________

“Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.”Psalm 37:4

Did you know that our Lord takes great joy in blessing us? Do we always recognize His blessings?

Our God is good and He only acts in love and goodness toward His children. He showers us with infinite blessings. The floodgates of Heaven open and rain down upon us all that is good and wonderful. We see many of His blessings that water our lives with abundance. New sprouts and blooms of opportunity, favor and joy surround us when we keep our eyes on our Lord.

Yet we sometimes miss the tiny flowers God nestles under rocks or in quiet spots of our lives. These hidden blessings are perhaps the most special when we take the time to search them out. God places them there for the joy it will bring to us. It is one of His ways of manifesting His love toward us.

“Whom have I in heaven but You? And earth has nothing I desire besides You.”Psalm 73:25

Our greatest treasure is Christ Himself. He is our heart’s desire. All that we could ever want can be found in Him. He gave His all for us and we give our lives to Him. His manifold blessings of salvation, favor and protection are His gifts to us.

Yet God would not want us to miss the blessings He tucks into the hidden crevices of our lives to delight us. We need to take time to uncover these gems. Others may not notice them. Yet they are a treasure to those of us who seek them out.

When we discover these hidden gems, we know that they were sent directly to us from our loving God. They have His unmistakable fingerprints upon them. They may not appear to have great value in the eyes of others. Yet to us, they are blessings straight from heaven… gifts directly from the hand of God.

These hidden blessings validate the truth that we are His prized possession, the apple of His eye. They are affirmations of our great value in His eyes. We are worthy to be called His children.

“I will cause showers to come down in their season; they will be showers of blessing.” — Ezekiel 34:26

Our God lavishes His love and blessings upon us. He treasures us, His chosen ones. His hand of generosity is a cherished reminder of His deep love for us. We can only look to Him in humble adoration and thankfulness as we come to discover and appreciate all His gifts to us… ever aware and ever thankful of His blessings.

“You make known to me the path of life; in Your presence there is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”Psalm 16:11

How has God blessed you? Are you appreciating His bountiful blessings in your life? Have you sought out the hidden blessings bestowed upon you with love?

Let us take time to thank our generous Lord who fills our lives with good things. Let us remember the infinite ways His favor shines upon us. Let us search out the hidden blessings that fill our lives with love and joy. How benevolent is our God!
