Before Slicing the Turkey…

As we gather with family and friends for Thanksgiving, the first 4 verses of Psalm 105 is a great help in preparing our thoughts… 

“Give thanks to the LORD. Call on His name; make known among the nations what He has done.” (v.1) 

What and who are you thankful for? Have you expressed those sentiments in prayer lately? God’s merciful kindness is abundant and a grateful attitude should be our testimony to those around us; personally and professionally. 

“Sing to Him, sing praise to Him; tell of all His wondrous acts.” (v.2) 

You may not sing aloud, but all of us who know Jesus as savior should carry a song in our heart. He has redeemed us; share the joy of knowing Christ with others. 

“Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.” (v.3) 

Choose to glory in Him. There are endless numbers of pursuits that promise fulfillment, but only Christ-centered goals will deliver lasting significance. 

“Look to the LORD and His strength; seek His face always.” (v.4) 

Acknowledge God’s hand of provision. He is sovereign and can be trusted with the future. Committing ourselves anew to his loving care is a great way to finish a wonderful holiday.
