Psalm 105:1-2 (NKJV)
1 Oh, give thanks to the LORD! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples!
2 Sing to Him, sing Psalms to Him; Talk of all His wondrous works!
We need to be thankful to God for all things. It is easy to be thankful for what we want, but we also need to be thankful that He always wants us to receive His best. He wants to show us His love if we will just receive it and accept it. He loves us, and we need to start there in our thanksgiving. He loves us enough to send His Son for us, so be thankful. He loves us enough to forgive us, so be thankful. He loves us enough to hear our prayers and answer them through His will for us, so be thankful.
Maybe you have not thanked Him in a while and you are afraid. God wants to hear from you and He knows you by name, so you will not surprise Him. In going to Him with thanksgiving you will be the one who is surprised in how much better you will feel. So, let this be the beginning of you spending time with Him in prayer.
So, as you tell Him thanks for all He has done for you also let it be a time of sharing. Share with others all that God has done for you and how He hears and answers prayers. It may bring some to know the Lord, or bring some back to the Lord, but in doing so you are giving Him all the glory.
Start the day being thankful and you will in turn see all that He has for you, as well as see all that He is doing for you. Be thankful we know a loving God who cares for us.
