As we begin this last week before Thanksgiving, let us turn our thanks completely to God. He is the source of all good things as the psalmist wrote in Psalm 103: 1-5.
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
3 who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
5 who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
The psalmist admonishes us to:
** praise the God for who He is, was and will always be!
**To not forget what God has done for me-REMEMBER His great works (my salvation being the first on the list!)
**To know with assurance that God forgives sin and heals. He is Jehovah-Rapha the one who heals both physically, spiritually and emotionally.
**To thank Him for his redemption from the pits of life in this world and the promise of eternity with Him crowned with His love and mercy.
**To Him who satisfies our needs with His goodness and renews us daily in spirit so that we always feel young in Him.
Let your thanks abound today as you meditate on all you have in and through Father God, Jesus the Son and His Holy Spirit. We are rich indeed!
