February 03, Count Your Blessings

Today’s reading: Psalms 11-15

“But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing the Lord’s praise, for he has been
good to me” - Psalm 13:5-6.

There are three verbs in today’s passage: trust, rejoice, and sing. The context for those three verbs is God’s goodness, love, and salvation He has extended to the psalmist. You also have a track record with the Lord, who hopefully has extended the same blessings to you as He did to David. Are you responding with the same expressions? Are you trusting? How do you know you are? Are you rejoicing or bogged down in the worries of life? Are you singing, or is your gratitude strictly internal, with no outward expressions of praise? Take some time today to do an inventory of all the ways the Lord has blessed you and then respond with joy and singing. In other words, count your blessings.
