Words from the Heart for Monday January 3rd, 2022
Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done.
1 Chronicles 16:8 (NIV)
What He Has Done
Canada always does well in comparison to other countries when it comes to business opportunities and ethics. In the “Open for Business” category in the Best Countries 2020, Canada finished third behind Luxembourg and Switzerland. This category is for countries that are perceived to be “business-friendly”. Countries were assessed based on their level of bureaucracy, manufacturing costs, corruption, tax environment and government practices. Canada ranked high for scoring zero out of 10 for perceived level of corruption.
God has been doing things in our world since the beginning of time. Whether it’s the big things like creating the entire universe, or caring for your life, He has been active in our world, and will continue to be for eternity. As far back as 1 Chronicles, people were writing about God’s activities in people’s lives. 1 Chronicles 16:8 says, “Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done” This is great advice for a new year. We are called to commit ourselves to constantly giving thanks to God for who He is and what he is doing in our lives. We are also reminded to call on His name. If you’re like me, you will be doing this regularly through the year – many times a day. God loves you and loves for you to call upon Him for all that you need. He is always available. Finally, we are to share with the nations all that God has done. At Bible League Canada we remain committed to this command, and appreciate all who help us do so. Do all you can to share with others – at home and around the world – all God has done in your life.
These have been words from the heart.
