“He led them also by a straight way, to go to an inhabited city. Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness, and for His wonders to the sons of men! For He has satisfied the thirsty soul, and the hungry soul He has filled with what is good.” (Psalm 107:7-9)
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. The Lord has given all that we need that we may be a people who are thankful. Come, you thankful people, come. The Lord beckons all those who will come to Him in His goodness and be blessed in His presence. What wondrous things the Lord has done and those who are in Him know this.
Lord, I am caught up in this selfish world which does not respect Your ways. I am tossed about on the sea of ungratefulness and complain as much as the next sinner. Lead me away from an ungrateful heart that I may give thanks in every situation knowing that You are Lord and You have given good things for all. Lead me into the place where I am thankful at all times.
Lord Jesus, You know that we need to be saved. You have come to lift us up to be with You. Lift me up this day to live into the life to which You have called me. Guide me in Your goodness to give thanks and praise for all that You have done. Let me see the good around me and not focus on this world and its constant whining. May I be found in You this day giving thanks. Amen.
