Baillie: giving thanks to God

Wednesday, June 26, 2024
    And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
    —Colossians 3:17 (NIV)
For the power Thou hast given me to lay hold of things unseen:
For the strong sense I have that this is not my home:
For my restless heart which nothing finite can satisfy:
    I give Thee thanks, O God.
For the invasion of my soul by Thy Holy Spirit:
For all human love and goodness that speak to me of Thee:
For the fullness of Thy glory outpoured in Jesus Christ
    I give Thee thanks, O God.
    ... John Baillie (1886-1960) & Donald M. Baillie (1887-1954), A Diary of Private Prayer, New York: Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1939, p. 53 (see the book)
    See also Col. 3:17,23-24; 2 Chr. 31:20-21; Ps. 42:1-2; Phil. 4:8; Pr. 3:6; 1 Cor. 10:31
Quiet time reflection:
    Am I truly thankful for the many blessings I receive?
