10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 1: Thankful for All of God’s Wonderful Deeds

Psalm 9:1

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 9:1 

I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.       

Thanksgiving Day is quickly approaching and I thought it would be nice to share some of the things I am thankful for. The Lord has been so, so good to me. I am thankful for everything the Lord has done for me and like King David, I want to share His wonderful deeds and goodness with the world. I am grateful for another day of life, for my salvation and for God’s love, grace and mercy. Without them where would I be? The Lord rescued me from a life of sin and although I am not perfect, I am not who I used to be. He has broken the chains that bound me and set me free. I have a roof over my head, food on the table and clothes on my back. The Lord provides for all my needs and so much more. I have an amazing husband who loves the Lord, loves me and loves our family.  I am blessed beyond measure!

Courage for Today

1 Samuel 17 37

Verse of the Day:  1 Samuel 17:37

The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.” Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you.”

You may be going through adversity right now with everything that’s going on in the world but you can have courage in your current situation. Just like the Lord rescued David from the paw of the lion, David believed that God would also rescue him from his imminent circumstances and you know God has brought you through difficult times before and He’ll do it again.  God was with you then and He’s with you now. Instead of worrying about your present state remember that God has gotten you out of difficult times before. Thank God for all that tribulations he’s brought you through and thank Him in advance for getting you through this difficult time.
