Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praises to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name. Hebrews 13:15
We should each take time to give thanks to the Lord for ALL the blessings He has given us. Some things we do not recognize as blessings because they don’t “stand out”. Blessings can be as simple as a hug or word of encouragement when or it can be something huge, like a new house or car for a job well done.
You may not have everything in the world that you really want, but you need to stop and take time to thank God for the things you do have. Stop and look around you, take just a moment and thank God for providing.
Thank the Lord for providing the food you eat, the roof over your head, and the clothes you wear. Thank the Lord for the money to go to the water park or the movie theater. Thank the Lord for your friends, your job and your car. Thank the Lord for letting you catch green lights on the way to work or to an event so you would not be late. Thank the Lord for the gift of life He has given you.
God loves it when you take time to recognize Him as your provider, He loves to be praised and He loves it when you take time to say thank you. It only takes a moment to bless the Lord with a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving, from your lips.
All you have to say is, “Thank you, Lord!”
