Sony’s Thoughts: Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow

“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endureth to all generations.” (Psalm 100:4-5)

If you are like me, it can take you days to list everything you are thankful for. I often marvel at God’s goodness and mercy in not only supplying my needs but also granting me so many extra blessings to make my life on earth a joy.

Because my life is so full of blessings, I have had to remind myself at times that “every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” (James 1:17) I have heard people talk about how hard they’ve worked to earn what they have, but you know what? We would have nothing if God did not provide it for us. No matter how rich you are, every bit of wealth and property could disappear in an instant if God gave the command. We need to make sure this Thanksgiving and every day that we are truly giving thanks to God for His goodness and not merely patting ourselves on the back or bragging about what we have. Our Father is worthy of all the praise and thanksgiving we have to give and more!

In closing, I would like to take this opportunity to again thank each of you who read my posts. As I count my blessings this year, I’m including you. I pray you have a wonderful weekend focusing on our Lord.
