I’m keeping it simple today…
There has been a lot of talk over the past days about being thankful.
We’ve counted our blessings and listed the good things we enjoy. We’ve feasted with family and friends and now, the day after it seems like it’s time to move on to all-things Christmas.
But before we do, I want to take a few more minutes to stop and simply thank God for who He is and all He does for us heart, mind, soul, and strength…
10 Things to Thank God for Every Day
Thank God for being our Burden Bearer – He is faithful to help us carry every burden and will strengthen us to endure every challenge when we surrender our lives to Him.
Give your burdens to the Lord, and He will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.Psalm 55:22
Thank God for being the Great “I AM” – His goodness is beyond measure. His power is beyond understanding. His grace is sufficient for every circumstance.
How kind the Lord is! How good He is! So merciful, this God of ours!Psalm 116:5
Thank God for being Mighty and Powerful – Throughout time God has demonstrated His power and might and He is mighty and powerful enough to help you and me with whatever difficulty we face.
Sing a new song to the Lord, for He has done wonderful deeds. His right hand has won a mighty victory; His holy arm has shown His saving power!Psalm 98:1
Thank God for being Righteous – He is the “One who is right!” Everything He does is perfect and holy.
Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the highest heavens. You have done such wonderful things. Who can compare with You, O God?Psalm 71:19
Thank God for being Merciful and Kind – Everything He has done from creation through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection and all He will continue to do from today and into eternity … comes from a heart of loving mercy.
The Lord is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.Psalm 103:8
Thank God for being Sovereign King – Rulers and leaders will come and go but God reigns supreme over all creation … that was true yesterday, it is true today, and it will be true forever and always.
The Lord is king! He is robed in majesty. Indeed, the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken.Psalm 93:1
Thank God for being Present – He is always with you and me. He knows every need and hears every prayer.
Lord, even before I say a word, You already know it. You are all around me—in front and in back—and have put Your hand on me.Psalm 139:4–5
Thank God for being your Provider – What an amazing blessing it is to know that He provides everything we need. Not everything we want but everything we need!
The Lord is my Shepherd; I have all that I need.Psalm 23:1
Thank God for being your Forgiver – What an amazing blessing to know that no sin is too great … through God’s grace given through Jesus, we can be confident that when we go to Him in humble repentance, we are forgiven!
Though we are overwhelmed by our sins, You forgive them all.Psalm 65:3
Thank God for being the perfect Promise Keeper – Every word of God has proven true. They always have and they always will. God faithfully keeps His promises — ALWAYS! What a blessing to know we can trust Him completely.
For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations. The Lord always keeps His promises; He is gracious in all He does.Psalm 145:13
A Thank You Prayer
Thank you, Lord!
You have heard my cry for mercy.
O, Lord, my strength and shield.
I trust You with all my heart.
Thank you for helping me,
and for filling my heart with joy and thanksgiving.
Lord, thank you, You are so good and ready to forgive,
thank you for Your unfailing love that covers me
when I come to You for help.
Teach me Your ways, O Lord,
that I may live according to Your truth!
Please help me and grant me purity of heart,
that I may honor You.
And I will praise You with all my heart, O Lord my God.
I will give glory to Your name forever!
