God Is Worthy Of Our Praise!

What would your world look like if you woke up tomorrow morning and all you had is what you THANKED God for today? Turn your bibles to I Thessalonians 5:16-18. The commands in these passages of text says, “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” We are commanded to give thanks, pray, and show gratitude in all circumstances. This literally should be a way of life for us as both of these beatitudes should naturally flow from our hearts and mouths. There are several biblical commands cited throughout scripture that instructs us to give thanks to God and most verses go on to list reasons why we should thank Him, such as “His love endures forever” (Psalm 136:3), “He is good” (Psalm 118:29), and “His mercy is everlasting” (Psalm 100:5). Thanksgiving and praise should be found at the core of our spiritual beings and they should always go hand-to-hand 🙌🏾!! We cannot adequately and fully live a purpose driven life without praising and worshipping God. Ok, some of you reading this message still can’t find at least one reason to thank and praise God. So what I want you to do is hold your breath as long as you can…..now exhale and then inhale….that breath you just inhaled was a gift and that is your reason to give God what He rightfully deserves. Y’all better stop living like your tomorrow is promised! Proverbs 27:1 admonition is clear, “Don’t brag about tomorrow, since you don’t know what the day will bring.” Case and point, we should be thankful because God is worthy of our thanksgiving. It is only right to credit Him for “every good and perfect gift” He gives (James 1:17). When we are thankful and grateful, our focus shifts from our selfish desires and off the pain of our current circumstances. Expressing thankfulness and gratefulness helps us remember that God is in control and when we foster this mindset it helps us to see the bigger picture, that we belong to God, and that we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing (Ephesians 1:3). Truly, we have an abundant life (John 10:10), and gratefulness is only fitting. So let me ask you again; “What would your world look like if you woke up tomorrow morning and all you had is what you THANKED God for today?”
