“Unto Thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto Thee do we give thanks: for that Thy name is near Thy wondrous works declare.” Psalm 75:1 (KJV)
One day a year the United States of America has a day of Thanksgiving. I believe a few other Nations also have a day of Thanksgiving some time in the year.
It is an awesome thing to thank the LORD God. He is worthy of our thanksgiving and our praise. Are you a grateful person? Do you thank God every morning as you get out of bed for a new day; for the chance to start over? Do you thank Him for the sunrise, or do you curse it? If you curse the new day, you are guaranteed a rough day.
All it takes for the child of God to be thankful is not out of obedience, but seeing the glories of God’s creation around us. His works do declare that He is near. Look at the birds as they soar, and fly through the air, and the sky. Listen to them as they sing their praises every morning, and all day long. Look at the wonders in the weather; the beauty, and the purity of the snow, falling and covering all the imperfections that are on the ground and in the trees. Thank Him.
For the Christian thanks is the way to begin the day, and end the day. It is even the way to live through the day.
As the apostle Paul has written,
In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
