This is a plea to give God thanks.
I have been reading How To Be Your Best by Norman Vincent Peale and in the chapter today he was speaking of giving thanks – everyday.
This book was written in 1990 but the principles still hold true and affective.
He spoke of the importance of being thankful to God for everything we have received.
One of his friends, who was a physician, told how he woke every day and thanked God for each part of his body, as he named them, from his head to his feet and how each still functioned.
The gratitude we should give will often give greater blessings or at least create in us an attitude that acknowledges the sovereignty of our creator.
Dr. Peale also discussed the need to give thanks for America.
No matter how things have gotten here it is still the best nation on earth and we need to offer thanks for that.
It was established on a religious base as evidenced in the Magna Carta by those on the Mayflower and has been brought through many problems by God’s protecting hand.
As we see the turmoil and trouble we as a nation are facing the only hope of correcting it is by those who profess to be Christians to turn back to Jesus Christ in humble reverence and thanksgiving.
If we fail to recognize the nations need of Him in it before He pours His judgement upon it.
Psalms 9:17 states “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
Many nations and civilizations throughout history have existed and been destroyed after they turned to idolatry and ungodliness.
None of us wish that for our or our children’s nation.
Acknowledge God and His son Jesus Christ giving them the thanks, glory and honor they deserve.
“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. Psalms 121:1&2
