There are so many things to be thankful for. But I think the one most deserving of thankfulness is being a child of the living God. He deserves all our praise for it.
What could’ve caused God to look down at us and decide to save us?
What did He see that was worth noticing?
What about our lives was something that He thought was worthy to be loved?
The answer to all those questions is: nothing.
Like many things God does, we can’t give a reason for them. But through faith and trust, we can know for certain that whatever He does, He does because He is sovereign. And for the simple fact that He chooses to do so.
I love how the Psalms are filled with so many praise verses to God.
Psalm 103: 1-4 says:
‘Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits. Who pardons all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion.’
So often, we live from day to day completely forgetful of this one simple truth: that we are saved from our sins by a God who saw our worthlessness, yet loved us anyway.
Is there anything better or more joyful than just knowing that?
Whatever you may be going through today, dwell on this. Remember that He loved you enough to save you, so He’ll love you enough to see you through whatever you may be experiencing.
His love is everlasting.
Praise His Name.
