Devotional – Recognizing God’s Unconditional Blessings

Devotional Sun Icon

May God give you the dew of heaven Genesis 27:28a ESV

Early this morning as I left the house I was careful to avoid stepping on the grass as I walked to my car. The grass was wet with the morning dew. Walking on wet grass would destroy my shoes and possibly stain the cuffs of my pants.

In biblical times the morning dew was a blessing– not a minor inconvenience. Every morning the dew would bring a refreshing break from the harsh conditions of an arid environment.

While it took much work to retrieve water from a well, the dew would arrive each morning without any effort. It was a blessing of God. An unconditional blessing that fell on the just and the unjust.

So each morning when you see the dew sparkling in the light of the rising sun remember the unconditional blessings of God you have received from Him.
