By Don Ruhl

You read the Bible. You read the history of Israel and you see the Lord’s generosity to them, and His seemingly endless outpouring of grace and mercy. Therefore, Isaiah said,

I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the LORD
And the praises of the LORD,
According to all that the LORD has bestowed on us,
And the great goodness toward the house of Israel,
Which He has bestowed on them according to His mercies,
According to the multitude of His lovingkindnesses.
(Isaiah 63.7) 

The Lord had given Israel plenty of reasons to announce to the world the Lord’s lovingkindnesses.

What about us Christians? What lovingkindnesses has He shown us? Ephesians 1.3–14 will give you a good start on composing a list.

Questions:

  • When you think of God’s blessings upon you, do think of blessings of the flesh or of the spirit?
