Be Thankful! For the LORD is faithful and His love endures forever. We often hear or read this quote on social media posts, flyers, postcards, note cards, or someone text it to you… So many times we can not count it. Especially, even more this Thanskgiving season. But God’s word always and forever endures through seasons and times no matter how many times we have heard.
“Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!
Who can utter the mighty deeds of the Lord, or declare all his praise? Blessed are they who observe justice, who do righteousness at all times!
Remember me, O Lord, when you show favor to your people; help me when you save them,
that I may look upon the prosperity of your chosen ones, that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation, that I may glory with your inheritance.” (Psalms 106:1-5 ESV)
The first 5 verses from Psalms 106 are the ones that speak to me personally. But I love the story behind these verse that was decribed on the rest of the passage. We can imagine the heart of the psalmist was full of thanksgiving to the LORD who had done great and good things in his live and Israel.
I am thankful for my LORD is faithful and His love endures forever. There is no one like Him. In any circumstances, He shows us his love and faithfulness to take care of us. He never forsake nor forget us.
There is time for us to feel something not fair with our lives, but God is just. He will shows favor and will saves those who call out to him and keep live in righteousness even though the situation is not right.
It is hard to give thanks to the LORD when the situation is hard and unfair. It is hard to give thanks to Him for good things but we did not feel what we received were not good things at all.
But remembering what God has done for us and how He has helped us in the past can help us to see His faithfulness and how much he cares about us. By remembering His goodness shown in our lives will help us to lift up our voice to praise Him and give Him thanks for who He is.
It is not about what He can do for us that we are thankful for. It is for who He is to us that we are thankful for. It is for who we are to Him that we are thankful for!
Let’s Be thankful every day, not only in this Thanksgiving season. Every singlr day we thank God for the life He has planned for us to live as long as we live on earth until the day we see Him face to face.
