I Chronicles 23:30 And to stand every morning to thank and praise the LORD, and likewise at even;
God through David, Solomon, and the levites set up a ministry that was to thank and praise God every morning and every evening. Imagine this. A group of people that had the service to God and His people of thinking of how good God is and saying it.
They had to take the time every day to thank and praise God. This was so important that God set aside a people to do so every day.
I am afraid that I often live my life without thanking and praising God. I go through life doing the things I have to do. I am not that grateful and I do not praise that much.
I praise and thank when something unexpected happens but not on a daily basis. Not just a daily basis but every morning and evening.
Lord I want to thank you. I thank you for those that have texted me this morning saying that they are praying for me. I thank you that you have allowed me to pastor and work with the people of Vision. I thank you for the building you are building for us. I thank you for all the people that attend Vision. I thank you for our Sunday School teachers that will stand or sit and teach in just a few minutes. I thank you for the most wonderful deacons in the world.
I praise you for my salvation. I praise you for the Word of God that I get to preach today. God I want to thank you and praise you more. You are worthy.
