Thank God

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply“Thank Yahweh, proclaim his name, make known among the peoples his deeds; Sing for him, make music for him, review all his wonders, Boast of his holy name, let the hearts of those who seek Yahweh be glad. Look to Yahweh and his strength; always be looking for his face. Remember his wonders that he has done, his miracles and the judgments of his mouth,” (1st Chronicles 16:8-12).  

This is the season of Thanksgiving in the United States and so we must take a few minutes to reflect on the magnificence of our heavenly Father, Yahweh, and give Him thanks and praise for all His many blessings and loving kindnesses.

We all have so much for which we can be thankful. And yes, we can and should be thankful to our earthly fathers, husbands, and caretakers who work hard to provide for our well-being.  But we must ultimately be thankful to the One who gives us life, teaches us to love, and provides for our eternal well-being.

Today scripture is a song that the Israelite sang in thanksgiving to Yahweh once they had returned the Arc to the Tent of David.  We, too, can sing these same words, even today, because we want to proclaim and glorify His name (Yahweh), sing and make music for Him, think about His wonders and the magnificence of creation and life, ponder His strength and miracles and judgements.

Yes, Yahweh is the One to whom we must always be thankful… today, this season, and forever.
