My Daily Devotional

Giving Thanks To God

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”
Psalm 118:1

Yesterday as I was mowing my yard, hopefully for the last time this fall, I looked around our yard and at our home and thought that everything looked beautiful, and that God had been good to us by providing us with so many material possessions. I began to pray and thank God for the things he had given us over the years. We still have our health, and have financial security, and have a beautiful family. What more could I ask out of life. That afternoon as I was doing my Bible study I searched out the scripture above and read it several times. I thought how often have I given thanks to the Lord for all the blessings he has bestowed upon me and my family over the years? We should be constantly giving God thanks for everything he gives us, but we all need constant reminders. He gives us so many things that we do not thank him for. I believe he wants for us to thank him and in this way we will remember that all things come from God. In Luke 17 Jesus healed ten men of leprosy and only one of the men came back to thank Jesus for healing him. Jesus said to them “were not all ten men cleansed? Where are the other nine? Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner? Just like these nine ungrateful lepers, we are all prone to forget to give thanks to God. God is so good to provide for our every need. He meets our physical needs through things like food, clothing and shelter. He heals broken bodies and wrecked relationships. God deserves our thanks and we need to give him our thanks every day.
