Psalm 116:17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, And will call upon the name of the LORD.
We need to be thankful and expressive in our thanks. He has done all for us. It is a sacrifice in a certain way to thank God because we want to think that we accomplished something. We want to take the credit for our success.
It is quite the step to bow down and admit that He has made us and not we ourselves. We need to recognize our God. We need to be praying to Him and asking Him to work because everything depends on Him.
We thank Him for live, for salvation, for health, for family, for all that we have. I married the most wonderful woman in the world but it is because of His marvelous grace and mercy not my own merit. I have 4 wonderful children serving God but it is not because of us and what we have done but because He is wonderful to us.
Let’s thank the Lord today for everything!
