A Psalm of Thanksgiving

Psalm 100 - A Psalm of Thanksgiving 

1 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
2 Worship the LORD with gladness;
   come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the LORD is God.
   It is he who made us, and we are his;
   we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
   and his courts with praise;
   give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
   his faithfulness continues through all generations.

Do you have anything to be thankful for? What about the air you breathe, the food you eat, the ability to walk without assistance, the clean water you drink, the clothes you wear. There is so much we can thank God for and there is not enough space available to list them all. As we enter the season of Thanksgiving and as we prepare the many feasts on Thanksgiving Day across the nation, let us remember the many things we are blessed to enjoy and thank the One who has allowed us to enjoy them.

We sing when we are happy and rejoice when there is good news. Everyday is a day of Thanksgiving. Giving thanks for the many things that we have and are able to enjoy is a privilege. God uses people to bless us. He uses human vessels to carry out the mission hear on earth. "Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his;  we are his people, the sheep of his pasture" (Psalm 100:3). Therefore, who is the source of all things? God is the source! Likewise, we give him thanks because we are His!

Do you know that it is rewarding when you do something nice for someone and they say "Thank you". If they did not say "Thank you", we would feel some sort of non appreciation. Well, our God rejoices when we give Him thanks because it shows that we appreciate the many provision he makes for us daily. It is not by our might, but by His strength that we are able to wake up and enjoy the simple things in life.

So, we give thanks, because without His grace and mercy, we would not be able to enjoy the tree of life. Share with someone the things you are thankful for and mostly importantly, thank God for sending His only Son, Jesus Christ, so that we might be free.

Keep thanking Him,
