Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due

Thankful Big Sister

Lately I’ve been struck by how incredibly worthy God is of our thanks and praise, but how I rarely take the time to give Him credit for His indescribable blessings.  This, coming from the girl who gets ornery if Bernie doesn’t thank me for some menial act like bringing him a glass of water…what can I say, I like myself some credit!  Who doesn’t?

Pathetic need for gratitude aside, God. Is. So. Worthy.  He and only He is deserving of honor, glory, and praise.  

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
   his love endures forever.
Let the redeemed of the LORD say this…
Psalm 107:1-2 (NLT)

So this morning, in no particular order, I’m incredibly thankful that our God:

  • Brings joy in the morningWeeping may last through the night,but joy comes with the morning.  (Psalm 30:5)
  • Gives strength to the weakHe gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.  (Isaiah 40:29)
  • Determines our steps, though we may try to plan our course In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps. (Proverbs 16:9)

So tell us, what are you thankful for?
