Blessed in Every Way

Blessed in Every Way

Today’s Scripture Selection: Genesis 24:1

“Abraham was now old and well advanced in years, and the LORD had blessed him in every way.”

I have members of the congregation I serve who certainly qualify as being “well advanced in years.”  Some are in their nineties – God bless them!

Others in my congregation are just getting started in this adventure known as life.  They are just a few years old.  But even at this early age, sometimes they speak like wise old prophets.  God bless them too!

I love the fact that, if we look for it, we can find examples of how God is actively blessing people of all ages and circumstances.  Wise old Abraham isn’t the only one who can claim he has been blessed in every way.  We are too.

Unfortunately, some begin to live life in such a way that denies this.

Either because of hardship, illness, disappointment, poverty, conflict, or some other malady they start to live as if they are somehow cursed, not blessed.

But I believe that for most of us – the evidence proves that we are far more often blessed than cursed.

So, whatever your age, give thanks and as the old hymn puts it, “Count your blessings, count them one by one, count your blessings, see what God has done!”

It may sound corny to some – but I believe it is a chorus of praise we should offer regularly to the God who is the source of each and every blessing – at any age!
