This is the week of Thanksgiving, and what better way to celebrate than to give thanks to the Lord!
The Lords word talks a lot about being thankful and giving thanks for what we have. To give thanks to the Lord who has provided for us. The Lord loves us. He wants us to be happy and at peace. One of the best ways to be filled with happiness is with a thankful heart. So why wouldn’t He mention in His word to have a thankful heart and to give thanks. So, this Thanksgiving give thanks to the Lord! Give Him all your heart and praise His name!
What are some ways that you show a thankful heart? What are somethings that you are thankful for?
Some of the things that I’m thankful for are my family and my cat Albus. But don’t just look at the things that are easy to notice, but also try and look for things that you normally wouldn’t notice. Like for me some of the things I don’t even think about is electricity, towels, fireplaces, and so much more.
What are some of the things that you don’t normally notice, that you are thankful for?
The Lords word says to give thanks always, to rejoice, to praise His name. The Lord’s love endures forever so we should give Him all the glory. Give Him all your hearts!
‘Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.’ 1 Chronicles 29:13
‘Hezekiah assigned the priests and Levites to divisions—each of them according to their duties as priests or Levites—to offer burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, to minister, to give thanks and to sing praises at the gates of the Lord’s dwelling.’ 2 Chronicles 31:2
‘All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.’ 2 Corinthians 4:15
‘You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.’ 2 Corinthians 9:11
Giving Thanks isn’t a new thing, Ever since the Old Testament the Lord’s people have been giving thanks. Nothing has changed in the truth that a thankful heart is what the Lord desires for us.
