Inventory of God’s Faithfulness

I’ve often paused and taken an inventory of my life. And, this leads me into seeing God in every detail.

A pastor once reminded me that Christians especially need to reflect on God’s goodness. We need to stop and make a list of all the times God stepped in and helped us through difficult moments.

How about you? Have you ever made a list of all the times God has blessed your life? The seasons where life just wasn’t as you had planned, and then something shifted, in your favor.

We often remember the bad times, when we didn’t get our way, times where it seemed like God was silent.

God is never distant. It’s us who distance ourselves from Him.

It’s hard to understand, especially in tragedies or moments of despair, but God is near and He wants to bless us.

Take inventory today. Remember all the times God rescued you from the storms of life.

Reflect on God’s goodness and give Him the recognition of all your blessings in life.

2 Corinthians 13:5 – “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?”
