“‘ . . . blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. . .’” Revelation 7:12, NASB
We have a God who is most deserving of our highest thanks and praise. In Him reside immeasurable might, power, goodness, and love. In fact, He Himself is love (1 John 4:8). He has compassion on those who fear Him as a father would have on their child
(Psalm 103:13). To the heavens reach His love. To the skies stretch His faithfulness (Psalm 36:5). His affection for us is everlasting (Jeremiah 33:3).
None can fathom the greatness of our God (Psalm 145:3). There is no one like Him. None can compare with Him. He created both the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1). By His very words everything around us was formed. He is the great King over all the earth (Psalm 47:2), and yet He cares for each one of us personally. The One who made us is interested in every detail of our lives. Nothing that concerns us is too trivial to interest Him.
Out of His exceeding goodness towards us, we worship Him. His love prompts in us a response of the highest praise and thanksgiving. His unfailing kindness to us encourages within us a sense of deep gratitude towards the Giver of every good and perfect gift
(James 1:17). Let’s give thanks to the One who holds the whole world in His hands, yet cares for each of us so!
How have you experienced God’s love and goodness in your life? To share, comment below. Give thanks to Him for His unceasing kindness!
Listen to this song, and take some time to glorify our wonderful Heavenly Father!
May each of you have a very Happy Thanksgiving, and enjoy spending time with those you care about!
