“Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples!” Psalm 105:1
Just for a minute stop and think about God’s goodness. Blink your eyes, wiggle your arms, lift your feet. Still working? Still moving (even if slowly)? God is so good to you and you have a million-plus reasons to give Him thanks today! Go ahead, get your praise on! Lift high your song of thanksgiving unto the God who has proven Himself to be faithful time and time again.
People say it’s rude to boast, and they are right…well, partly. Boasting in our abilities, talents, connections, money, etc. is fruitless, because everything we are, everything we do, everything we have, is because of God. Think of this, if it wasn’t for God’s sure mercies and His tender loving-kindness, you would not be reaping a harvest in your life now. If it wasn’t for His Word and precious Holy Spirit, you would have no growth, no favour, no transformation, no increase, no promotion and no grace in your life. It is all because of Him!
Go ahead, tell somebody. Let the star of your life’s story, your history, your overcoming, be Jesus! Boast in your God today. Tell people of His wondrous, glorious, marvelous, mighty, super-fantastic deeds in your life. Give thanks for all that He has done in and through you and show forth His praise on this earth. Let the world know that Jesus is alive and real today!
