Good morning everyone. Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good and so very worthy of all praise. There may be some among us that don’t know where that phrase comes from. I start my messages with it a lot and today I’m going o take you to the scripture from which it and the song that we sing were derived, but first we will pray.

Today’s Prayer
(Let’s make this our personal prayer today)

Dear Lord, “I got nothing that I asked for, but everything I hoped for. Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered. I am, among all men, most richly blessed.” … I thank You, Lord, for the difference You have made in my life. Help me as a Christian, to be a person who can make this world a better place, because I have learned to seek Your will and be obedient to it. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
* Comment — This prayer became identified with Max Cleland, who closed many of his speeches with it. Cleland was appointed to head the Veteran’s Administration in 1977. He was a Vietnam veteran who lost both of his legs and an arm as the result of a grenade explosion in Vietnam.

Let’s eat.

Give Thanks

Psalm 107:1-8

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. Has the Lord redeemed you? Then speak out! Tell others he has redeemed you from your enemies. For he has gathered the exiles from many lands, from east and west, from north and south. Some wandered in the wilderness, lost and homeless. Hungry and thirsty, they nearly died. “Lord, help!” they cried in their trouble, and he rescued them from their distress. He led them straight to safety, to a city where they could live. Let them praise the Lord for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them.

I have it on good authority that this is helping somebody right now. You were wondering which way to go and the answer to your questions are in this psalm. Please take the time to read the whole psalm. There is healing and comfort in it.

Quote of the Day

Spirit filled souls are ablaze for God. They love with a love that glows. They serve with a faith that kindles. They serve with a devotion that consumes. They hate sin with fierceness that burns. They rejoice with a joy that radiates. Love is perfected in the fire of God.
