"The LORD remembers us and will bless us: He will bless the house of Israel, he will bless the house of Aaron, he will bless those who fear the LORD —small and great alike.” (Psalm 115:12-13 NIV))
We simply look at each other and say,”BONUS” - when God does that little bit extra that He’s such a specialist at doing. As an example, when we are completely worn out following many long days of labor; finally it’s off for a vacation. We were in for a long flight and were prepared for our bodies going a bit stiff and having to remain seated, squeezed in for many hours. When we finally, after a long wait in the departure lounge are cleared to board the aircraft, the airline’s agent greets us with the words;”Is it Rut and Peter”? Surprised that he addressed us by our first names we answer, ’yes’. Then he says with glee: ”You have been upgraded to Business Class”. We just look at each other, this time with tears in our eyes, and say, BONUS! – or more correctly – God’s blessing again! – We were treated like royalty; we were offered broad, comfortable seats, offered attention to every detail, food and beverage on Royal Copenhagen china.
God always knows our every need. Sometimes He surprises us in the most remarkable way. We just know it’s His doing. He knows us by our name and knows every detail of how He can best demonstrate His personal concern and care for us.
Thank You for knowing our every need, and for having the resources to meet and fill them to overflowing…
