After these days his wife Elizabeth conceived, and for five months she kept herself hidden, saying, “Thus the Lord has done for me in the days when he looked on me, to take away my reproach among people.”
“Thus the Lord has done for me …” What has the Lord done for you? How has He totally amazed you this year? How has He blessed you? Have you allowed His presence to become your complete satisfaction?
I want to encourage you to make some lists today. Set aside ten minutes and write out things that God has done that have amazed and blessed you. Then, jot down ways you have seen yourself become more satisfied with Jesus than anything else. After you do this, pray and thank God for your list, then sit down with Him and have a cup of tea or cider and enjoy His presence for a few quiet moments. It will be His delight and yours!
Precious Jesus, the things You do for me are amazing. You bless me each and every day. Thank You for Your daily kindnesses. I praise You for the salvation that comes from You and the love that defines You. Teach me this coming year to find satisfaction in Your presence like never before and to love You more each day. In Jesus’ name, amen.
