“Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy.” Psalm 107:1-2
” Those who sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, Bound in affliction and irons– Because they rebelled against the words of God, And despised the counsel of the Most High, Therefore He brought down their heart with labor; They fell down, and there was none to help. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, And He saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, And broke their chains in pieces. Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men!” Psalm 107:10-15
Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven.” 107:28-30
The entire Psalm 107 is my scripture of choice this year for Thanksgiving. There are times, when my heart doesn’t flow with Thanksgiving the way that I wish it would. It is during those times that I pick up the word of God and begin to read about His goodness and let it speak to me and remind me of what to be thankful for. I usually start in the Psalms, Galatians, or Romans 8. This year 107 brings me to my knees and causes gratefulness to flow! I have specifically highlighted the scriptures above that really speak to me.
Perhaps 107 doesn’t speak to you the same way it does to me this year, I encourage you to take a few minutes and DIG for the Psalm (there are 150 of them!) or other passage that lights your fire and brings you to a place that you overflow with Thanksgiving to the King of all Kings! Happy Thanksgiving!
