Every Day Is A Day Of Thanksgiving

I trust and pray that you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

For believers, every day is a day of thanksgiving.  David says, “I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.”  (Psalm 34:1)

Unfortunately, all too often the following statement is true:

“We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.”  Novelist Cynthia Ozick, quoted in the Selma Alabama Times Journal (The Week, November 18, 2011)

Never forget to thank God for your many blessings.  “In everything gives thanks: for this is the will of God concerning you.”  (I Thessalonians 5:18)

I preached the Sunday after Thanksgiving at Bethel Baptist Church in San Diego, CA, where Dr. John Ringgold is pastor.  I was blessed by the choir’s rendition of “For Every Mountain” (Kurt Carr, No One Else album).

For Every Mountain

I’ve got so much to thank God for,
So many wonderful blessings
And so many open doors,
A brand new mercy,
Along with each new day;
That’s why I praise You,
And for this I give You praise.

For waking me up this morning,
For starting me on my way,
For letting me see the sunshine
Of a brand new day;
A brand new mercy
Along with each new day
That’s why I praise You,
For this I give You praise.

You’re Jehovah Jireh,
You’ve been my provider,
So many times You met my needs,
So many times You rescued me,
I want to thank You for the blessings,
You give to me each day;
That’s why I praise You,
For this I give You praise

For every mountain You’ve brought me over
For every trial You’ve seen me through
For every blessing, Hallelujah
For this, I give You praise.”

Kurt Carr

There is always reason to rejoice and thank God for His goodness. Today, I am happy glad that I’m alive in Jesus!

“Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say, Rejoice.”  (Philippians 4:4)

“But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”  (I Corinthians 15:57)

“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name.”  Psalm 100:4

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  (Ephesians 5:20)

Every day is a day of thanksgiving.
