ACKNOWLEDGING GOD WITH THANKSGIVING
Psalms 34:1 – I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. (KJV)
When Jesus was going about His earthly mission, He reverenced God because it was through His presence that He did exploits (Acts 10:38). Christ never took the glory for Himself but acknowledged His Father before performing miracles. He honoured the trinity union and gave thanks always (John 6:10-12; 10:30; 11:41-44).
David is another example of a man who was addicted to worship that he praised God after his son’s death (2 Samuel 12:16-23). He always recognised the presence of God with praises, whether in the streets or indoors. No wonder, as confirmed in our Bible reading, David never made thanksgiving a condition but a lifestyle!
Beloved, as we progress in the fast-moving year, let us imitate Christ and David to live in God’s reality through thanksgiving. Having the understanding that we can do nothing without the Lord’s grace and mercy helps us maintain a life of worship. Daily, remember that it is in God we live, move, and have our being (Acts 17:28A). Therefore, we must intentionally live to appreciate Him because “Thanksgiving is the secret for more”.
Hymn: To God be the Glory – Fanny Crosby (1875)
1. Father, endow me with a heart of thanksgiving in total surrender to You!
2. Lord, open my understanding to always give You what will cost me.
1. This June, I shall never be late to my place of glory, honour and establishment.
2. Any drums of war sounding within and around our nations; cease by divine intervention.
3. “Glory today, shame tomorrow”. I am not your dwelling place. Get out of my life!
4. Satanic utterances spoken into my life during the time of the unknown. Dry up by the blood of Jesus.
YOUR DAY IS BLESSED!
