Give Thanks to the LORD!

"Give thanks to the LORD!" is a familiar phrase that rings out throughout the Bible. Twenty-nine times we are instructed to give thanks to the LORD. This is a great time to meditate on this command. Why should we give thanks to the LORD? We are given many reasons in the Bible. First, because He is good and His love endures forever (Ps 106 & 107). Second, because of His righteousness (Ps 7:17). Third, because He is the believer's strength and shield (Ps 28:7). Fourth, because of His unfailing love and deeds for men (Ps 107:8, 15, 21, 31). Fifth, He gives believers victory through Jesus Christ (1 Cor 15:57). And sixth, because He has great power and has begun to reign (Rev 11:17).

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving season? I want to encourage you to read Psalm 107 as part of your Thanksgiving celebration. Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good and His love endures forever!
