God's Abundant Blessings: Reflections for a Thankful Heart

For those of you who have taken the Entrusted with a Child's Heart class, you may be familiar with the list of benefits God heaps upon His children. Lesson 8 lists 24 wonderful ways that God provides for families who trust in Him.  As part of your Thanksgiving devotions this year, consider this list of ways that the Lord looks out for God-fearing families.

Families who trust God and live under His authority will...

  • see God do great things in their lives and the glory and praise go to Him. Deuteronomy 10:20-21

  • abide with God now and forever. Psalm 15:1-4

  • are guarded from evil by their fear of God. Proverbs 16:6, 2 Corinthians 7:1

  • experience God's guidance in making wise decisions. Psalm 25:12

  • experience the abundant life in Christ and are rich in the things of God. Psalm 25:13

  • are able to have true fellowship with God. Psalm 25:14

  • receive God's goodness which He actually stores up for them. Psalm 31:19

  • are rescued by Him and receive His assurance that He is always near. Psalm 34:7

  • are blessed for the purpose of becoming His witnesses to the world. Psalm 67:7

  • receive His forgiveness for their sins and His compassion extends even to their children's children. Psalm 103:11-13, 17 

  • receive the promise of God that He will always provide for their needs. Psalm 111:5

  • humble themselves before God and are unified in the Body of Christ, the Church, and the world over. They have a spiritual bond with God's people everywhere. Acts 10:35

  • live life with an eternal perspective and a compassion for the lost. 2 Corinthians 5:11


As we put God first in our families, He daily loads us with benefits. Let's pause and reflect on all we have to be abundantly thankful for—and not only on Thanksgiving Day.
