Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.
What an incredible Psalm of Thanksgiving! Take some time this week as Thanksgiving is coming close and lift up thanks before the Creator of the Universe our Shepherd and Savior.
Read through Psalm 100 this week and if you have time take a look at some of these other Psalms that lead us into Thanksgiving.
Psalm 136 is a powerful list describing the powerful acts God has done and the way they reveal His enduring love. Psalm 139 is an intimate time of thanks as we encounter the God who knows us and created us fearfully and wonderfully. Psalm 107 is long and easy to get lost in but has some great statements of Thankfulness. Psalm 118 declares thanks in a prophetic way that even looks towards Jesus Christ in vs. 22-24. And Psalm 34 lifts up thanks to the Lord we find refuge in; the Lord who fights for us and protects us.
If you want to find some more inspiration read through 1 and 2 Thessalonians and make a list of everything Paul is thankful for on their behalf.
Lead your family in times of Thanksgiving this season and lift up all those things we tend to take for granted before the throne of our Lord and Savior from whom all blessings flow!
