Consider the Great Things God Has Done for You

"Only fear the LORD, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider how great things He hath done for you." 1 Samuel 12:24

The word "consider", means "to reflect on" or "contemplate".   Scripture tells us to consider many things and to learn from them.  When you have some time consider: the lilies, (Matt. 6:28); the ravens (Luke 12:24); the ant (Prov. 6:6); the heavens (Ps. 8:3); your ways ( Hag. 1:5);  one another ( Heb. 10:24); The Lord Jesus (Heb. 12:3); the wondrous works of God (Job 37:14)!  When was the last time you really stopped and considered what great things God has done for you? -E.V. 

"Count your blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what The Lord hath done."
