Devotions for Friday, January 25, 2019

“Let them also offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, and tell of His works with joyful singing. Those who go down to the sea in ships, who do business on great waters; they have seen the works of the Lord, and His wonders in the deep.” (Psalm 107:22-24)

No matter what you have or have not done, do you see the hand of the Lord wherever you go? The Lord created the heavens and the earth and He invites us to see His handiwork. Rejoice in the Lord and His goodness and know that He is Lord of all. Let your life be one of thanksgiving for all of the goodness of the Lord and know that He who made all things has you in His hands.

Lord, grant that I would have a heart of thanksgiving. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of Your truth that I would see Your hand through all things. Let me be one who is thankful for all of life’s circumstances knowing that You are the One who causes all things to be. In You is the hope for all futures and in You is the promise. Guide me to trust in Your promises now and always.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for paving the way that I might be one who is thankful in and through all circumstances. Guide me this day to live giving a thank offering by the life I live. The night before Your crucifixion, you gave thanks to the Father. Lead me into a life that is thankful at all times and for all things. May I become more like You this day, Lord Jesus, and do what is pleasing to the Father. Amen.
