"Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods." – Psalm 95:2-3
To be thankful is an act of worship, as my pastor-father often stated in his sermons.
When we offer thanksgiving to our great God, as the scripture states above, we are extolling Him—we're praising God with enthusiasm and passion, holding nothing back.
And what better time to offer that praise than during this month of gratitude? We count our blessings, and not only the things we view as good—the provision of health, prosperity and happiness—but also the trials, too—the heartache, and the disappointments that impact our lives, which can strengthen our faith, make us more compassionate, more generous...more tenderhearted.
Will you join me in thanking our heavenly Father for His remarkable creation; for being all-knowing and everywhere present; for always extending His love to us His most precious creation; for never leaving us alone; for doing all things well; for His great power against the rulers of darkness; for the miraculous gift of grace?
So grateful for you!
