It is a good thing to be reminded on one special day of the year that it is our full time occupation every day (while going out, while being out and while coming in) to give thanks to the LORD for goodness is not just an attribute, it is what God is and He can be nothing else. Let there be giving of thanks (in both speaking and singing) to Jahveh, who is most gracious. “It is a good and delightful thing to give thanks to the Lord, To sing praises to Your name, O Most High” (Ps.92:1, Amp)
On the morning of our 10th anniversary, I proudly presented Kathy with a special card I had remembered to buy the day before. It was an expensive one that had gold-embossed raised letters. The message on it was very romantic and meaningful. It was the 10th year in a row that I had not forgotten to get her a card. Without reading it she sighed, put it back down on the table and said, “Just once, it would be nice to have something YOU said instead of something you paid a total stranger to say.” Ouch! There was no thank you and no passionate kiss! That evening I was in my time of devotion with the Lord. I was singing the latest song that had already sold over a million copies when Kathy’s response to my card came flooding back through my mind. It was as though the Lord was saying, “I would like to hear a song from you that was not written by someone else.” Ps.98:1 says, “Sing to the Lord a new song”. The Hebrew meaning of the term “new” is “something fresh, a new thing.” In other words, a NEW SONG which is sung to God is one that has not been sung by anyone else. A NEW SONG is one of spontaneity and delight. You are the only one who can sing that NEW SONG to God because you are the only one who truly knows what God means to you.
“You have no rival, You have no equal. Now and forever our God reigns.”

As the people of God assemble today, may they lift their voices, their hearts and hands and sing thanksgiving unto the Lord God for all His beneficent blessings toward us. For God is good and greatly to be praised.
“[ A Song of Praise ] Come, let us praise the Lord! Let us sing for joy to God, who protects us! Let us come before him with thanksgiving and sing joyful songs of praise.” (Ps.95:1-2, GNT).
