Remember God’s mercy this holiday

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, everywhere.

“Give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good, for his mercy endures forever,” Psalm 136:1.

The word of God lets us know that we are always to give thanks to God, and as I always say, we have so much for which to be thankful.

A few other verses about thankfulness remind us what today is all about.

“It is a good think to give thanks unto the Lord and to sing praises unto thy name, O most high,” Psalm 92:1

“Unto thee, oh God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks, for that thy name is near thy wondrous work declare,” Psalm 75:1.

“I will praise the name of the God with a song, and I will magnify him with thanksgiving,” Psalm 69:30.

“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving and into his courts with praise. Be thankful unto him and bless his name,” Psalm 100:4.

I started this article off by thinking of God’s mercy. Ephesians 5:20 says “Giving thanks always in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

I leave you with this verse: “Oh give thanks unto the Lord, call upon his name. Make known his deeds among the people,” Psalm 105:1.

Our Lord and saving Jesus Christ wants you and I to make known his deeds, that he is the one that blessed us with all of the blessings he gives us. He blessed us with our health and strength. He blessed us with jobs, roofs over our heads, food to eat, clothes on our backs.

Remember every day is a day of Thanksgiving, so to God be the glory.

Happy Thanksgiving.
