Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
Many a time, we look out only for big demonstrations of God’s love to feel loved and favored by God.
My friend, don’t just look out for the big blessings. Bless God when you do get them, but look out for the small blessings and tokens of His love that He showers on you each day. That little baby that smiled at you? That’s Jesus winking at you from heaven! That little note of encouragement from your colleague? God moved that person’s heart to bless you and to show you that He cares! What about yesterday’s shopping trip in which you found an item that you’ve been looking for at a special discounted price? That’s God placing you at the right place at the right time!
Beloved, don’t just look for the spectacular to be happy and miss all the small mercies from heaven. It’s the little things that matter in life—a note, a smile, a hug. Good gifts from your heavenly Father sometimes come in small packages, just like the manna from heaven. See in them how much He loves you, cares about the smallest detail of your life and is thinking of your good throughout the day!
