“If you will listen diligently to the voice of the LORD your God, being watchful to do all His commandments which I command you… all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you…” ~Deuteronomy 28:1-2
Only 2 weeks till Thanksgiving! If you are joing me for the first time, I’m counting down the days till Thanksgiving by sharing all of the things in my life I am greatful for.
Today, is Day 7 of the Thanksgiving Challenge and I’m thankful for Surprises.
This morning, I surprised my kids with donuts for breakfast to celebrate all of our UN- Birthdays. You remember the song from Alice and Wonderland, right? It may just be Your UN- Birthday today too?! “So blow the candle out my dear and make your wish come true!”
Deuteronomy 28:1-2 says, “If you will listen diligently to the voice of the LORD your God, being watchful to do all His commandments which I command you… all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you…” which to me means, the LORD likes surprises too!!!
Did you know that the word “overtake” can be translated “to catch by surprise.” God wants to find fun ways He can be good to us and catch us by surprise!
When Was the Last Time God Surprised You?
Last week, I was surprised at work one day when I received a sugar cookie in the mail! Compliments of the cookie vendor, I was more then happy to indulge!
God wants us to be constantly amazed with His goodness and mercy. We must keep our eyes open so we don’t miss the ways He works. Psalm 77:14 says, “You are the God of great wonders! You demonstrate Your awesome power among the nations.”
Each day we should wake up with the attitude of, “I just can’t wait to see what surprises God has in store for me today!” It might be Donuts!
Watch for it. God doesn’t only celebrate us on Birthdays and Holidays. He is engaged 24/7, and 365 in helping us achieve our dreams!
