It is easy to think of giving thanks at Thanksgiving, but giving of thanks should be a daily part of our lives. We should openly and often throughout daily offer thanks to the Lord. Psalms 26:7 (AMP) “That I may make the voice of thanksgiving heard and may tell of all Your wondrous works.” Thanksgiving is something that should be heard. We should daily express our thanksgiving to the Lord and share with others the wonderful things He has done. Psalm 69:30 (NKJV) “I will praise the name of God with a song, And will magnify Him with thanksgiving.” Praise and thanksgiving functions together. When we give thanks, we are magnifying the Lord God. He becomes bigger in our lives and to us. He becomes bigger than any situation or circumstance that is occurring.
Prayer and thanksgiving go hand in hand. Colossians 4:2 (AMP) “Be earnest and unwearied and steadfast in your prayer [life], being [both] alert and intent in [your praying] with thanksgiving.” When we offer thanksgiving, we are thankful for all that the Lord has done and for what He promises to do. Thanksgiving should just flow out of us. It should not be something that we should think about. When we are thankful, we are displaying our love and gratefulness to the Lord. Just as we like to be thanked when we do something for someone else, the Lord loves for us to express our thankfulness.
