Our Heavenly Father,
So many times I thank You for what You have done and are doing and I pray I will never ever take You for granted in how You daily work in my life and circumstances.
But Lord, what I fail to do often is to thank You for what didn’t happen, the things You prevented from happening, the issues that didn’t take place, the circumstances that could have happened, but didn’t.
Thank You for the health issues that could have taken place in my life and family but didn’t. Thank You for the accidents that could have happened but didn’t. Thank You for the dangerous things I could have encountered but did not. Thank You for the people that could have been discouraging or hurtful, yet they never reached me. Thank You for Your hedge of protection around me and my family and for using angels to guard and protect us.
Lord, I confess to You that even when those things do happen, You have a greater plan and purpose even if I don’t see it or understand it at the moment or even until I get to heaven.
For today, I thank You for what didn’t happen.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
