This coming week, take time to remember what the Lord has done for you, and express your thanks.  Be creative and try different ways to show gratefulness–sing, praise, and joyfully worship Him.

From Psalm 92:1-2:  “It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night.”

Thank God for all things.

From Psalm 65:1-4:  “Praise is due to you, O God, in Zion; and to you shall vows be performed, O you who answer prayer!  To you all flesh shall come.  When deeds of iniquity overwhelm us, you forgive our transgressions.  Happy are those whom you choose and bring near to live in your courts.  We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house, your holy temple.

The Bible tells us that whenever we come before God, whatever our purpose or prayer request, we are always to come with a thankful heart.

From Proverbs 15:29:  “The Lord is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous.”

Prior to the arrival of Thanksgiving, a nearby church sign reminds all of us with a provocative message, but it can certainly be applied to any given day.

Will you be thankful . . . or just full?

From Psalm 136:1:  “O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, and His steadfast love endures forever.”
