Living thanks

I will give to the Lord the thanks due to his righteousness, and I will sing praise to the name of the Lord, the Most High. (Ps 7:17)

This is the first time the word thank appears in the psalms. Behind it is a deeper understanding than just saying thanks. It is being a person of gratitude. This person lives out 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

Simply said, circumstances can only lead me to give thanks. Living with gratitude approaches all circumstances with “Thank you, Lord.”

Gracious Lord, Savior

In all, I give thanks to you

With all, heart rested

Lord, you have never made it difficult to thank you. Through wonderful times, you have been with me. Through the uncertainties, you have led me. Through need, you have provided. Thank you, Lord.
