Today’s Promise

Give Thanks to the Lord, for He is Good

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Psalm 118:29

You Are Blessed

Everything you have and everything you are comes from the Lord. Every day, He pours out His blessings on you and your family. His goodness and commitment love for you never ends. 

Most of us enjoy far more blessings than we deserve. Most of us have a lifestyle that much of the world can only dream of. 

However, even with all the blessings we enjoy, we can get sidetracked with fear and worry. With overbooked calendars, we can forget to be thankful for all God has done for us.

Give Thanks

God commands us to be thankful. Thankful people have a special connection with the Lord. Thankful people are not proud people. They recognize all the wonderful things God has brought into their lives.

Something amazing happens when you take up a life of thankfulness. When you give thanks to the Lord, you confess that He is a good and loving God. 

When you give thanks to the Lord, you also confess your dependence and trust in Him. As you give thanks, God’s goodness and love override the concerns of life.

Today, you can be thankful no matter what your situation. As a child of God, you are blessed.

Count Your Blessings

Don’t let worry or stress steal the joy that comes from thankfulness. Take time to review all the wonderful blessings God has brought into your life. As the old gospel hymn says, “Count your blessings, name them one by one. Count your many blessings see what God has done.”

You can give thanks today because God is good. 

You can give thanks today because God cares for you in ways beyond your knowledge. 

You can give thanks today because His commitment love for you is everlasting. He will never forget or leave you. Even when you feel all alone, God is there with you to teach, direct, and comfort you.

Look at that verse again.

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting. – Psalm 118:29

Make these confessions.

  • Thank you, Lord, for all the blessings you have given me.
  • Thank you for your goodness and promise.
  • Thank you for caring for me in ways I never see.
  • Thank you, Father, that your love for me will never end.

In Jesus Name,
Amen

When you take time to be thankful, the problems of today fade, and you see just how much God loves you.

There are at least 8 times when the Apostle Paul asked for prayer. Today I am asking you to pray for me. As we head into the busy season of the fall, I need God’s strength, wisdom, guidance, and provision. Take a moment to pray for me and this ministry. My heart is to encourage believers around the world with the promise of God. Ask God to bless and expand this ministry.

    Thankful for being surrounded by family during this time when so many are doing it alone and living in isolation. It’s also a blessing to be able to have hope and trust in God that He is doing good things. He has a special plan ahead for each and everyone of us on the earth.
    Honestly I am so thankful for Jesus, who redeems us from the penalties we deserve from our sins. God gave the greatest gift by allowing us to have salvation through Jesus and one day, eternal life with him.
    I am learning to be thankful for each day we have, from the moment we wake to the sun setting.
    God is amazing.
    Thank you Father.
