Deuteronomy 8; Psalm 103:10
Scripture Text: Psalm 100
1 "Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Serve the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, & we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture."
4 "Enter His gates with thanksgiving & His courts with praise; give thanks to Him & praise His name.
5 For the Lord is good & His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.
Enter With Thanksgiving
I believe we are a people & a nation that has truly been blessed by God. And of all those who "give thanks to Him & praise His name" our name should be at the top of the list!
It is not uncommon to compile wish lists at Christmas, & draw up a list of resolutions for New Years. But there is another list we often overlook a Thanksgiving Day list of all for which we are thankful.
Our list might not be the same as others, but I'm convinced that if we began to make a list, we would find that we have much more for which to be thankful than just our material possessions. Like you, I'm sure, my list would include the major things life, health, family, friends, & the nation we live in, despite all its flaws. But even more than that, I'm thankful for my salvation, our church family, & the mercy that God showers upon us each day.
With Jesus we have so much for which to celebrate on Thanksgiving!
What if God began to treat us like we so often treat Him?
What if God met our needs to the same extent that we give Him our lives?
What if we never saw another flower bloom because we grumbled when God sent the rain?
What if God stopped loving & caring for us because we failed to love & care for others?
What if God took away His message because we wouldn't listen to His messenger?
What if He wouldn't bless us today because we didn't thank Him yesterday?
What if God answered our prayers the way we answer His call for service?
What if God decided to stop leading us tomorrow because we did not follow Him today?
O Lord, help us to be thankful that you do "not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities" [Psalm 103:10].
Conclusion: I pray that this will be a meaningful Thanksgiving season for you & all your family. Take time to read the 100th Psalm again.
If you'll heed those commands, your heart will overflow with thanksgiving to the Lord.
