” 3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, 4even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love 5he predestined us for adoption through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, 6to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.” (Ephesians 1:3-6)

On this day set aside to give thanks, we praise You Father, and bless Your name, that You have given to us every spiritual blessing in Your Son Jesus.  Your holy and merciful designs for us have been planned from before the foundation of the world, and to the praise of the glory of Your grace.  Help us today, to consider the ways in which grace and mercy have been lavished upon us in our earthly lives.  And keep us mindful that as many temporal blessings as we have (family, houses, jobs, food, running water and central heat and ten thousand other things we take for granted), there is no greater blessing than to have fellowship with Your Son.  Help us, Father, to treasure Christ above every other blessing, knowing that all Your magnificent promises are ‘yes’ and ‘Amen’ in Him.
