All this is evidence that God’s judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering. 2 Thess. 1:5
Do you remember learning to count, as a child? I remember my teacher making me, for homework, count to a hundred, by tens, to two different people at home. How excited were my mom and dad that I could do it! I felt so accomplished, lol!
As adults, we can also count in a better way. We can count ourselves grateful for our blessings. We definitely can count God faithful. We can count our families a gift. The most important things to count are things we are thankful for. The thing I count as most valuable, besides God, is His Word. Without Him and His Word, I honestly do not know where I would be!
This begs the question…How does God count? According to the Bible, He counts our faith and obedience. I looked in the Bible and realized the word, ‘count’ is used over a hundred times. For example, Abraham trusted God, and how did God count Him? Righteous.
Just as Abraham “believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Galatians 3:6 NKJV
Here are some more references to counting what matters:
Sarah counted God faithful…..Hebrews 11:11
James says to count it all joy…..James 1:2-4
God counted Timothy faithful…..1 Timothy 1:12
Dear God, Thank you for your blessings that are too many to count. I want you to count me faithful. Please help me obey, for I am a learning child of yours. I count you worthy of praise and everything else I can give you. Amen
Today’s Takeaway: Counting is important to learn, but what matters most is that we count God worthy of obedience and God counts us faithful to Him.
With the love of the Father, I hope you have a wonderful day. Remember, God loves you!…..Tina
