Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples! 1 Chronicles 16:8
When someone does something good for you or gives you a gift, it is only right and proper to say ‘thank you’. In the same manner, today we are taking a moment to give thanks to the Lord not only for all He has done but for who He is, why?
Because “It is good to give thanks to the Lord, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High” (Psalm 92:1)
“For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised…” (1 Chronicles 16:25)
Our gratitude to God is not dependent on how we feel in the moment or when everything is going well in our favour:
“Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will]”. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Our gratitude is dependent His promises and who He has proved Himself to be in our lives, in those around us and in His word (the Bible).
So today, in the midst of everything, let us take a moment to reflect on this then give God the praise and thanks due His name.
Today I choose to give thanks to the Lord, sing His praises and make known his deeds.
Thank you Lord for who You are, You are great and greatly to be praised. I choose to return the breath you gave with my praise to You all most high. May I never cease to give you thanks in everything. In Jesus name, Amen.
