Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. His love endures forever. Psalm 136:1
Today we celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States. The first Thanksgiving dates back to the Pilgrims, taking time to thank God for His provision in their first year on the shores of the New World.
And make no mistake about it, they were thankful to God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The great I AM. It was not a general feeling of thankfulness, or just a day off from the otherwise busy work week. It was a celebration, recognizing that they were where they were by the grace and mercy of Almighty God.
We should pause to remember today, to give thanks, in that spirit, with that heart. All we have is from the Lord, by His hand.
Take time today to thank Him for the provisions and blessings in your life.
