Psalm 92:1,2 says “It is good to give thanks to the LORD, and to sing praises to your name, O most High; to declare your loving-kindness in the morning, and your faithfulness every night.” Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on the awesome goodness, grace, and mercy of our majestic God, and in spite of what you might be going through, to declare his loving-kindness in the morning, and his faithfulness at night. We all can agree that God has been good to each of us, even though we don’t deserve it. A.W. Tozer said, “Thanksgiving has great curative powers.” God should never be taken for granted. Lets take a moment to reflect on and thank him for our health, strength, activity of our limbs, our right minds, shelter, food, transportation etc. God is patient, loving, and kind, in spite of you.

God is personal and has allowed us to know him. God is spirit, infinite, eternal, and unchanging in his being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness and truth. The Apostle Paul in I Thessalonians 5:18 instructs us to be “thankful in all things.” The Apostle Paul reflects on the social, political, and religious situations of the church at Thessalonica; and exhorts, encourages and praises them. Paul wants to persuade the saints to stay faithful. That’s what genuine thanksgiving is all about, remaining faithful to God.

Sometimes it is difficult to ‘give thanks in all things’ when it seems your life is going in the wrong direction. It is at those times when it seems God is nowhere to be found, and you are inundated with trials and test that you must remember to be thankful! In the good times and the bad times God deserves thanksgiving. Let us take a moment to stop, and reflect on all that God has done in our lives, and all that God means to us and simply, with a spirit of deep gratitude say “thank you God!”

I pray that this thanksgiving you spend quality time with family and friends and reflect on your love for one another, and the absolute goodness of God and simply say, “thank you!” Blessings on you all.

 

For the Kingdom,

Pastor Reggie C. Witherspoon Sr.
