Give Thanks

 

Today’s verse is a simple instruction: Give thanks to God. Contextually, the Israelites have been brought together after decades in exile and suffering. Psalm 107 recounted much of what they went through, including being lost in a desert, dwelling in darkness, illness and being caught in a storm. Whether these descriptions are literal or illustrations of their suffering, the end result is the same; God loves them and has redeemed them.

The verse and psalm by extension is a reminder for us to continually give thanks to God, to remember His love for us. Not just thanks for what He has done for us previously, but continual, ever-present gratitude, mimicking His everlasting love for us.

“Forever, God is faithful
Forever, God is strong
Forever, God is with us”

Chris Tomlin – “Forever”
