Choosing Gratitude Challenge Day 10

Day 10

1 Corinthians 2:6–11

There are blessings in your life and mine that “no eye 

has seen, nor ear heard” (v. 9)—blessings that only 

show themselves by not showing up. Today, try 

listing as many of these things to be grateful for as 

you can think of. For example, think of the miles 

you’ve driven without getting a flat tire. Think of the 

big tree out front that’s never dropped a damaging 

limb on your house. Think of a destructive sin or 

habit the Lord has kept you from being tempted by. 

Perhaps you’re hobbled by a medical problem or two, 

but think of a dozen you’ve never experienced.

Look at all the benefits on your growing list of 

gratitude inducers, and by backing them into reverse 

like this, you’ll find your blessings multiplying at an 

amazing rate.

Gratitude can (and should) lead us to intercession. A 

good prayer starter is to ask God to remind you of 

those who do suffer from some of the things He’s 

spared you from. Lift these people up to Him today.

Part of my morning devotions I list five things I’m thankful for. Many mornings being thankful that the van still runs makes it on the list. Something has been wrong with it for about a year now. The Lord has been gracious and kept our van running!

What are some things you are grateful for? How can I pray for you today?

For His Glory,
