[CF Devotionals] 2008-12-15 - What Are You Grateful For?

Weeks ago, we celebrated Thanksgiving. A day to go off our diets, prepare for shopping sales, to watch parades and sporting events - and oh yes, to give thanks for all our blessings.

One thing I am thankful for is knowing the Lord. There are still many of His qualities that baffle and amaze me, but I am grateful for His presence and guidance as I plod along this life.

The prophet Nahum paints a picture of God as a supreme and emotional being. Nahum's Old Testament book may be small, but its first seven verses describe several revealing attributes that the Lord possesses.

  • The Lord seeks loyalty. (verse 2)
  • God is slow to anger. (verse 3)
  • God is powerful. (verse 3)
  • Nature obeys Him. (verses 3b-5)
  • He is a refuge in times of trouble. (verse 7)
  • The Lord cares for those who trust in Him. (verse 7)

Father, Show me if I possess any selfish characteristics, because I want to be more like You. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
