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.
See The Little Things God Does
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!
