Now that Thanksgiving has past how many of us have gone right back to business as usual? We gave thanks to God on Thursday but on Friday went back to worshipping the things we made from our hands. All of the blessings that came our way over the weekend were made possible by our beliefs in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Don't get me wrong we must work hard and make plans. God tells us that he will esatblish the work of our hands. If we build something without honoring God it becomes idolatry and moves us further from God. We must not forget that it is God we serve and without him blessing our work it will not be successful.
As you go throughout the rest of the holidays remember it does not have to be Thanksgiving to give thanks to our Creator for all that he does for us and through us. Continue to serve and be the light in someone's life today.
Have a blessed week!
And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
They profess that they know God, but in their works they deny Him, being abominable and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
1 Chronicles 29: 12,13 12Both riches and honor come from Thee, and Thou reignest over all. And in Thine hand is power and might; and in Thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.
13Now therefore, our God, we thank Thee and praise Thy glorious name.
