“O Give Thanks Unto The Lord (3)”

SIH’s Think On These Things: Psa 106:1-2

Ps 106:1-2 (KJV)   …  Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can shew forth all his praise?

In our last devotional of this series, we will end with these two questions….
“Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD?”  
“who can shew forth all his praise?”

Over the past month, as we have thought on a few of the multitude of ways that our Lord deserves our thanks…it all boils down to this one issue.  After all is said and done, we cannot begin to really appreciate, nor thank, our Lord as we should.  This theme is repeated again and again by the Psalmist in a variety of contexts…

Ps 40:5 (KJV)  Many, O LORD my God, [are] thy wonderful works [which] thou hast done, and thy thoughts [which are] to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: [if] I would declare and speak [of them], they are more than can be numbered.

Ps 71:15 (KJV)  My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness [and] thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers [thereof].

Ps 139:17-18 (KJV) How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!  [If] I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.

King David understood the dilemma that we face…. we serve a Lord that is so kind, loving, gracious and merciful that He is CONSTANTLY blessing us.  Every breath we take, every flower that we may see, every second we are not in the Lake of Fire, is a miraculous blessing from our Lord…. How can we begin to recognize all of them and then give Him the appropriate praise?  All we can do is fall upon our knees and ask the Lord forgiveness for failing miserably to recognize His continuous displays of tender love He has shown towards us.

Let us all come before our God and thank Him for the forgiveness that He grants to us as we fail to appreciate all His gracious workings.

May the Lord bless us as we “Think On These Things”.

    I was reading Ps. 40 this morning, and that definitely stood out to me! 🙂 God bless you as you teach us there is always always something to thank Him for.

      Hi Deb,

      Psalm 40 is a wonderful Psalm that is for sure. So many things to thank Him for, so little ability ot understand and proclaim them! Have a wonderful day. Lord bless you.

  3. Psalm 40:5 is one of my favourites and always quoted as part of my testimony. His blessings are ceaseless and endless. His work in us and through us is on-going. His undertaking for us and planning and directing our moves is constant. He is my loving Father God 24/7 who continually and constantly supplies my needs. All prasise to Him!

    What an amazing God!

      Hi Angela,

      Yes, Psa 40:5 is a wonderful verse indeed… how good the Lord has been to each one of us! Lord bless you. May His grace continue to be be multiplied upon you.
