Give thanks to the Lord
It’s a great and a whole some thing to give thanks to the Lord. To those who understand his nature, it’s indeed a delight to give Christ thanks. The more you understand the peace, love and hope that comes from Christ the more eager will you be to give him thanks.
One thing is that there is no special time to give thanks. You can thank him any time of the day or night. Psalm 34:1 says it best – I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. Notice that this Psalm says one can even praise the vocally.
Be it songs, poetry or plain words one can really praise the Lord. We read in Psalm 69:30 – I will praise the name of God with song, And shall magnify Him with thanksgiving.
When you enter the prayer chapel or a church or any place where Christ is worshiped enter over there with thanksgiving. Psalm 100:4 – Enter His gates with thanksgiving, And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name.
Always give thanks to the Lord for he is good. Take in mind, 1 Chronicles 16:34 – O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His loving-kindness is everlasting.
If a fire fighter saved you out of a burning building you’d be really grateful, right? How much thankful you should be with Christ who has ensured your safety in the next life too?
Be thankful to Christ every time his power and grace gets manifest in your life. Psalm 107:29-32 – He caused the storm to be still, So that the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad because they were quiet; So He guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the LORD for His loving-kindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men! Let them extol Him also in the congregation of the people, And praise Him at the seat of the elders.
Thanks giving helps you to be humble and reverent towards the Lord. The more thankful a person is to God the more chances does he give to Christ to do more miracles in his life. Let gratitude be a part of your attitude.
