Oh, Thanksgiving is Over?

Psalm 7:17 says:

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.

I have been guilty of not giving thanks to God for everything in my life. Sure I take time to thank God on Thanksgiving but when the day is over I tend to get wrapped up in everything else life throws at me.

I forget to give thanks to God for who he is. He is a God that is righteous and holy. He is a God that loved me enough to place my sins on himself by dying on the Cross. He is a God that is powerful enough to defeat death. He is loving enough to save people who hate him.

I pray that we will be people of Thanksgiving even when the day dedicated to it passes.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” -1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (ESV)
