1 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! 2 Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! 3 Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! (Psalm 100:1-4, ESV)
We are taught in the US from our earliest days of the traditions of Thanksgiving, of how the Pilgrims gave thanks for being taking care of that first desperate winter. It is great to thank God for our meals, but how much greater to realize the awesomeness of God and give thanks for who he is and not just for what he does.
Prayer: Lord, worthy are you to receive glory and honor and power for you created all thing and by your will they existed and were created (Rev 4:11).
