My Daily Devotional


Give Thanks

“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 the generations.”
Psalm 100:4-5

During this Thanksgiving season, I want to take the time to thank God for all the bountiful blessings He has bestowed upon our great nation. God’s favor has been on our nation since our forefathers founded it, and established it as a Christian nation, one steeped in the belief that God was our creator. We have been blessed like no other nation as is evidenced by our richness, compared to other nations. As we celebrate the Thanksgiving season we need to keep our minds on that it is God that has enabled most Americans to set down to a dinner of turkey, dressing, potatoes and cranberry sauce, and we should give God credit for all we have. But Thanksgiving is more than that, as I believe Thanksgiving is an indication of the heart. It shows that our lives are in balance—that our communication with the Lord is not all about our wants and our needs. When your life is in balance you will continually thank God for all the good things of life, but when your times of trouble arrive, you will be content with them also, as they are God’s way to let you know that He is still in control. You must consistently be thanking God, in the good times and in the bad times, believing that all things will work out for good to those that love Him. So while you’re thanking the God “who satisfies your mouth with good things”, remember that He is in control and He knows best. Let’s bless the Lord in all things, because God is good all the time.
