It seems that most often when we go to our Lord in prayer, it is out of want.  We all have needs and God has already promised to take care of all of them.  But how often do we pause to even think of the abundance that He has given to us without us uttering a word?  I’m sure that most of us would love to receive a million dollars.  Yet, He has blessed us with so much more.  Consider the value of your eye sight.  What is that worth?  I pray that we are not a people too blind that we fail to go to our Lord in thanksgiving.

Psalm 84:10-11 (NIV)
10  Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11  For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.


The best gift to receive is eternal life…
