Giving Thanks: O Praise Him

Psalm 100

"Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.

Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
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.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.

For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations."

Did you catch it? Giving thanks is more about our intentional choice and attitude than it is about things to be thankful for. Joy and gladness are choices - circumstances, material things, and relationships are often beyond our control.
Did you also catch this - giving thanks is always about Who we recognize as the giver and sustainer of all things. The Lord is God - our God. He has been, is, and always will be the creator and provider for all people.

What can we do other than praise Him?

  1. hey nice post mehn. I love your style of blogging here. The way you writes reminds me of an equally interesting post that I read some time ago on Daniel Uyi's blog titled How Does Not Trusting Other People Hurt Your Business? .
    keep up the good work.
