“Give thanks to the Lord of lords, for His lovingkindness is everlasting. To Him who alone does great wonders, for His lovingkindness is everlasting;” (Psalm 136:3-4)
Look around at the world and what do you see? Not the people first, but the creation: do you not marvel at the creativity? Can you not see the great diversity? Now look at the people. Do you not see great creativity and diversity? The Lord is marvelous for He made all these. Marvel at what the Lord has done and praise Him. To Him alone belongs all praise and honor and glory.
Lord, I listen to what the world says and believe this is the truth of all things. I see only what I want to see. Help me to truly see with honest eyes that I would marvel at all that You have made. Guide me according to Your goodness to see that in You alone is where honor and worship is due. Lead me into Your presence that I may reside with You all the days of my life.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead the way and to establish a faithful people who worship the Father in spirit and in truth. Guide me this day to live the life which You intend for me to live. Guide me in the way I need to go that I may now and forever abide with You and You with me. Teach me to give thanks and praise at all times and in all circumstances. Amen.
