This year, I'm sharing my "Treasures" of my study of my "Ponder the Morsels" book. I've picked 31 Psalms to study throughout 2013. Today I studied Psalm 100. Here is what I learned.
Enter his gates with a song of thanksgiving. Come into his courtyards with a song of praise. Give thanks to him; praise his name. Psalm 100:4 (GW)
Go through His gates, giving thanks; walk through His courts, giving praise. Offer Him your gratitude and praise His holy name. Psalm 100:4 (VOICE)
"Be thankful unto him." Let the praise be in your heart as well as on your tongue, and let it all be for him to whom it all belongs. "And bless his name." He blessed you, bless him in return; bless his name, his character, his person. Whatever he does, be sure that you bless him for it: bless him when he takes away as well as when he gives; bless him as long as you live, under all circumstances; bless him in all his attributes, from whatever point of view you consider him. The Treasury of David
Thankful: feeling or expressing gratitude; appreciative.
How do I express my thanks to Almighty God?
- In prayer. Tell God thank you.
- In my conversations. Let others know that I’m thankful for Who God is, and what He is doing.
- In my life. Live a life pleasing to God. If I’m truly thankful to God, I’ll want my life to be honoring to Him.
- In my thoughts. What do I think of God? Remembering that my thoughts are words to God!
Expressing gratitude to Almighty God will make each and every day a positive one!
