I Thessalonians 5:18
Today I would like to encourage each of you to praise the Lord and offer a prayer of thanksgiving to Him. Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised!
Let us consider all that the LORD has done for us and give thanks to Him. He is good; His loving kindness is everlasting and His mercy endureth to all generations.
Summer and Winter, Spring and Fall, He is faithful. He gives us life and breath; In Him we live and move and have our being. He has satisfied our thirsty and hungry souls. He has filled us with what is good. God is our constant supply.
Let us thank Him for the very opportunity and privilege of coming into His Holy presence through prayer. Let us thank Him for knowing our needs before we ask. Let us thank Him for giving us what is best for us and not giving us those things which would not be beneficial to us.
Let us thank Him that He keeps us from falling into the hand of our adversary. When we have cried out to the LORD in our times of trouble He has delivered us out of our distresses. He is our shield and protection.
Let us give thanks that He is our salvation. He is loving and kind, gracious and merciful, compassionate and forgiving. Praises be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He will remember His covenant forever. Thank Him for new life in Christ.
Let us give thanks that God does not slumber or sleep. He always watches over us. We are ever in His hand, ever in His care. The Lord is our shepherd. We shall not want for any good thing.
Thank Him for His Holy Word, His precious promises. Thank Him that His promises are sure. He is the lamp for our path, the light for our way. Let us give thanks that He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Our God is an awesome God. To Him be glory and honor, both now and forever.
