SUNDAY 1ST MARCH, 2020
THEME: HEART OF THANKSGIVING
PASSAGE: PSALM 100:1-5
HYMN: MHB 1 O FOR a thousand tongues to sing
MEMORY VERSE: Psalm 95:2 “Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song.”
It is no gainsaying that giving thanks for goodness received leads to receiving more from the giver or benefactor. A grateful heart shall be made fat. The psalmist encourages us that, our appreciation and thanksgiving should be from the heart not just on the lips. Anytime we are opportune to be in the presence of God, our hearts should be free from all burdens of life and be full of thanksgiving, for in the presence of God there is fullness of joy. We should always thank God with the whole of our heart because He is our Creator, He is good, and His love and faithfulness endure forever.
Learn to give thanks in all circumstances. Your current position is another person’s dream. Some people are praying and fasting to get to where you are today. If we consider our lives and present situation, we will clearly see that God has made us better than someone in one way or the other. Therefore, we must always show our gratitude to Him for His loving kindness.
Remember all you have, and whatever you give belongs to God who gave them to you. We should not be like the Pharisees who worship God with boastful hearts; rather, we should always enter His presence with the heart of humility and thanksgiving like the Publican. (Luke 18: 9-14.) As you go out this Sunday, thank God for whatever situation that comes your way because all things work together for the good of those who love God. (Rom 8:28).
God alone is worthy of being worshipped. The psalm tells us to remember God’s goodness and dependability; and worship Him with thanksgiving and praises.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, help me to always worship You in spirit and in truth with thanksgiving. Amen
