We have been talking about the Book of the Law and its importance. At the end of the religious reformation conducted by Josiah, it was important for the people of Judah to be thankful for God’s redemptive grace and mercy. The Bible says, “While they stood in their places, they read from the Book of the Law of the Lord their God for a fourth of the day and for another fourth [of it] they confessed [their sins] and worshipped the Lord their God.” Read Nehemiah 9:3 (AMP).
Listen to this, every time the Book of the Law is opened and read; it should invoke thanksgiving, because, we see God’s love for humanity through His spoken word. After all, it is God’s will for us to be a people of gratitude, hence the Bible says, “In every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.” Read 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (AMP).
From here on, worshipping the Father will not be a matter of the right place but with the right heart. For God is a Spirit, and He longs to have sincere worshipers who worship and adore Him in the realm of the Spirit and in truth.” Read John 4:23 (TPT). Can you see this? The Scripture tells us being thankful is a matter of the heart as supposed to the condition of your environment.
Watch, “We are surrounded by God’s benefits. The best use of these benefits is an unceasing expression of gratitude. John Calvin.
Brothers and sisters, there is a lot we have to be thankful for. The Bible says, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.” I have breath in me, you have breath in you, then, PRAISE THE LORD for His wonderful works to the sons of men. Glory, Hallelujah.
My Father, I am in awe of You sir. Great is Your Faithfulness. You alone are God and worthy to be praised. Your name is higher and greater than any other name. My Father, Your faithfulness is from everlasting to everlasting. Oh, how I love You.
