Thanks And Praise
August 23, 2023
"Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name." Psalm 18:49
There is no doubt The Lord has been and is good to each of us. He has been there for us through thick and thin. The Lord was there for us when everyone else left. The Lord has watched over us in situations we did not even know He was watching us. We have so much to thank and praise The Lord for, we can thank and praise Him for His goodness and His mercy, and how great He has been to us. Anywhere we go we should be able to thank and praise The Lord, and we should not allow people to stop us from thanking and praising our Lord. The Scripture reminds us to give thanks to the Lord, even in the presence of the heathens, or those who tried to keep us down, and to sing praises to His name. I encourage you to let today be a day of thanks and praise unto The Lord for all of the great things He is doing in your life. People may have tried their level best to knock you down, but The Lord has kept you through it all, and in the face of your enemy, thank and praise The Lord for being by your side. Every time you think of how good The Lord has been to you, thank and praise Him. Every time you think about how He has brought you through, thank and praise Him. It does not make a difference who is around you, thank and praise The Lord, because you know for yourself, if it had not been for The Lord who was on your side, where would you be? I will thank and praise The Lord often today because He is good to me and He has brought me a mighty long way. Since I will thank and praise The Lord, I have no doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord I just want to thank you for all you have done and all you are doing for me. You have done so many great things in my life, and I just want to say thank you Lord. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
