I Will Give Thanks to You

There are days  when nothing seems  to go right.     One problem piles  on top of another  and another  and another.     Instead of tearing hairs,  we need to remember  who God is  and sing along  with David  in Psalm 108:1-6,

My heart is steadfast,  O God;
I will sing,  I will sing praises,  even with my soul.

Awake,  harp and lyre;
I will awaken  the dawn!

I will give thanks  to You,  O LORD,  among the peoples,
And I will sing praises  to You  among the nations.

For Your lovingkindness is great  above the heavens,
And Your truth reaches  to the skies.

Be exalted,  O God,  above the heavens,
And Your glory  above all the earth.

That Your beloved  may be delivered,
Save with Your right hand,  and answer me!

King David had many adversaries  and was always  in need  of the LORD’s help.     In the midst  of his demanding,  desperate needs,  David steadfastly looked  to the Lord  for help.     David sang praises  to the LORD  when he needed help.     Hint, hint.

We,  too,  need to always sing  the praises  of the LORD God Almighty  when we need help.     After all,  He is our heavenly Father  and He loves us  ever so dearly.     When we sing God’s praises  along with David,  we will also sing the last verse  of Psalm 108  with him,

Through God  we shall do valiantly;   
And it is He  who will tread down  our adversaries.

Trusting in the Lord  and singing His praises,  we say,   “Hallelujah!      Lord,  we will give thanks and praise  to You  because Your lovingkindness  and patience towards us  is so great.     Thank You  for giving us the truths  of Your eternal word  that we might know some  of the greatness  of Your love.”

Love,
Margaret
