Give Thanks

It is a good thing to be reminded on one spacial day of the year that it is our
Fall Wagon Pumpkins.jpgfull 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 Yahweh, 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)

The Gates of Thanksgiving

As the people of God assemble today may they observe the opportunity to be Gate.JPGthankful and give symphonic thanks with others who have also experienced the goodness of Father God. May they also determine to make any and all places with any and all opportunities the “gates” that are regularly entered with thankfulness.  “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and a thank offering and into His courts with praise! Be thankful and say so to Him, bless and affectionately praise His name! For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations.” Psalm 100:4-5 (Amp)

Stay Still and Stay Thankful

After a time of wrestling with unanswered prayer that hadn’t seen the slightest possibility of being answered and after asking the Lord for wisdom and counsel rowing in stormbefore my attitude got way out of line, the Lord spoke to me, “Stay still and stay thankful”. Those are very clear instructions. Immediately I began to think about stillness and thankfulness and Jn.14:1 “Don’t let your heart be troubled”, came to mind. Having studied it I knew it meant “don’t let your heart be agitated or tossed to and fro or perplexed with doubt” and all that is the opposite of being still. Unanswered prayers don’t get to determine the mood for the day. When the man arrived from Jairus’ house and told him not to trouble the Teacher any more because his daughter was dead, Jesus heard the man and said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid! Just trust me, and she’ll be all right.” (Lk.8:50, TLB) Trust is the place where you don’t live by what you see or by what you hear; trust is the place where you stand on the Lord’s steady faithfulness, His unshakeable goodness, His undistracted awareness of what you need, of your prayers and when and how it will be best to answer them. —Kathy Gabler


Say Thank You in the Night

Thank God in the Night. May we awaken in the night to give thanks and to receive insight and be stirred in the truth that our God is available to those who seek Him and may we return expectantly to restful sleep knowing that He is acting in our behalf.   “…I get up in the middle of the night to thank you; your decisions are so right, so true—I can’t wait till morning!” (Ps.119:60, Msg)

Give Thanks is a Good Thing

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)
