Thanksliving-Part 1

January 21, 2015


God did not have a beginning and He will never have an end. This earth that we are on right now would not be here if it wasn’t for God. God in a sense never having a beginning and never having an end put earth in the universe and He peopled this earth starting with Adam and Eve. He is Sovereign over it until one day He calls us home. 

This is the God that I pray you wake up every morning thanking Him, praising Him, and yes, worshiping Him 24/7. My friend, I pray that you live each day carrying about with you the worship you have already been doing.

Notice Psalms 92:1 – “It is good to give thanks to the Lord…” This is simple.  It is good to give thanks to the Lord! So, let me ask you, “If it is good to give thanks to the Lord, should you give thanks to the Lord?” Let me ask you, “If you don’t give thanks to the Lord, which is good, is it bad to not give thanks to the Lord?”

Yes, it is bad.  Let me ask you, “Have you been thanking God?” I am not talking about just on Thanksgiving, but are you living a Thanksliving life where you live, move, and have your being in an attitude of prayer, worship, thanking and praising Him. My friend, to be so accustomed to the blessing of God that we forget or choose not to thank Him should be foreign to the true child of God.
