Acts 3:26 God, having raised up his servant, sent him to you first, to bless you by turning every one of you from your wickedness." ESV
Another jewel to embrace, God sent His son to me and to you! He wants to bless us, but it's not just something that we easily get. We must turn from our wickedness (amazing, we don't like to realize that we were wicked - but that is exactly what we were) and receive Him. The blessings we think of are material, but that is not all that He is talking about. Our greatest blessing is that we will live with Him eternally in the place that God has prepared for us. Anything else we get down here we definatley don't deserve, but He gives to us and we should realize what a Mighty God we serve. We have nothing because of our own merit. Anything and everything we get is from God. How many times do we say thank you, how many times do we realize that the little things are also coming from God.
Make a list of what He has blessed you with today and then thank Him for giving it to you.
