Give thanks to the Lord!

Today’s Scripture seems pretty straight forward. So let’s dive in together.

 

1 Chronicles 16:8-24

“Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; make known His deeds among the peoples! Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; talk of all His wondrous works! Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord! Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face evermore! Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth, O seed of Israel His servant, you children of Jacob, His chosen ones! He is the Lord our God; his judgments are in all the earth.”

As I said, I think this is pretty straight forward. God wants His people to praise Him, to glory Him, to know of all He does for them.

 

The take away is…

As His children, we need to always remember the wonderful and amazing things God has done. We should remember the works He has done, not just in the Bible but also in our own lives.

Was there something that happened that you just can’t explain? Maybe a sudden job offer. Or a good prognosis. Or a healing that was so needed. Well, that’s all God. He has done those things for you. And He doesn’t want you to forget. Not in a “you better not forget it!” kind of way your parent yells at you when they’re upset. In a “I care about you and I want you to remember the good things I have done for you.”

So even when times aren’t that great, and you’re struggling and aren’t sure what’s going on, remember the things God has done for you and praise Him for those things. Tell people what He has done so they can see Him in you.

What has He done for you that you need help remembering?
