So much to be thankful for

Daily Thought

Your Word for 20 June 2024

2 Corinthians 1:4        NLT
‘He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others.’

15504God has truly blessed us. There is so much to be thankful for.  Just think for a moment about the ways in which God has been good to you. O Lord my God, how blessed am I. Yet God wants more and more for us.  He wants us to grow and mature in Him. He wants us to go from glory to glory.
I remember a situation where a group of us went hiking. One member of the group was driving us through a mountain pass. The car was a little underpowered. Another group member kept reaching over and pulling up the hand brake. In the process we would loose all our momentum and have to build up speed again.
Sometimes we do this in our spiritual lives. We keep pulling up the hand brake or the hand brake keeps being pulled up for us.  It constantly halts our progress.  Some who are listening or reading this have a desire for God, but they keep putting the brakes on.  Maybe you have long since completely applied the brake and have stopped all progress.  I am here to encourage, don’t stop going for God.
