First, because IT IS A WONDERFUL THING “ It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to the Most High. 2 It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening.” (Psalm 92:1-2).
SAY thanks to the Lord God is a wonderful thing “ It is good to give thanks to the Lord.” Every time we received good gifts and every time we have a meal, we should pause to think and to thank the Giver of life and of all the good to us. The more we give thanks the more it will take away the complaints, murmuring, whining from us and will replace us with gladness and joy and will also increase our love and appreciation for our dear Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is the joy of thinking and thanking Him for what He has done for us from the little thing to the biggest things in life. Specially, we are deeply and forever thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ for His eternal salvation to us and to those who putting their trust in Him. That is why the Bible reminds us of our attitude should be gratitude.
SING praise to the Most High is a wonderful thing “ It is good … to sing praises to the Most High.” We are the people of praise. Our praise is part of the worship to the God whom we love and adore. Our praise is pleasing to the Lord our God. “ So through Jesus let us always offer to God our sacrifice of praise, coming from lips that speak his name.” (Hebrews 13:15). Our praise is one of the most powerful tools God uses to overcome our sadness, our sorrows, our struggles, our worries, our fears; especially to overcome the enemy of our souls who always want to discourage and to destroy us. But when we sing praises to our God something always happened. “The sound of joyful shouting and salvation is in the tents of the righteous; the right hand of the Lord does valiantly.” (Psalm 118:15). God began to move among His people and miracles performed. When we think about the experience of God’s people in the old day and in our days. According to Joshua chapter six, when Joshua the leader led God’s people in worshipping and went around the city of the enemy, with the great shout the city were crumbled, crushed down, and captured.
SHARE His unfailing love to others is a wonderful thing. “ It is good … to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening.” Here are some ways we can share God’s unfailing love to others, we all can do this by our lip share His unfailing love – Our life shine His unfailing love – Our love show His unfailing love. What a powerful witness! All we need to do is just use them for His great and glorious name.
Second, because IT IS THE WILL OF THE LORD “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18). God wants us to give Him thanks in all circumstances, in all places, and in all time. Why? It is the will of God for our lives.
Third, because IT IS THE WAY OF LIFE “Whatever you do. Whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” (Colossians 3:17). We need to remember that we are the people of grace – we are saved by God’s grace (Eph. 2:8-9). We are that we are because of God’s grace upon our lives (1 Cor. 15:10). We need to grow in His grace daily (Col. 2:7; 2 Peter 3:18). Here are something that we are so grateful for is that Jesus saved us, Jesus set us free, Jesus shapes us, Jesus shines on us, etc … plus we are grateful for everything we received from God, so that we can live a life of gratitude in each and every moment of our lives. That should be our attitude of gratitude.May we find His abundant grace in times of need and may the God full of grace grant us grace to life a life of gratitude all the days of our live. Amen.
