Daily D – 2 Chronicles 20:21
Then he consulted with the people and appointed some to sing for the LORD and some to praise the splendor of his holiness. When they went out in front of the armed forces, they kept singing: Give thanks to the LORD, for his faithful love endures forever.
2 CHRONICLES 20:21 (CSB)
After talking it over with the people, Jehoshaphat appointed a choir for GOD; dressed in holy robes, they were to march ahead of the troops, singing,
Give thanks to GOD,
His love never quits.
The path of progress and victory is paved with praise. When we recognize God for who he is, when we shape our actions by aligning ourselves with his activity throughout history, when we faithfully declare his ultimate reality and immediate presence, we win. This is true even if the scoreboard declares otherwise. Some losses are greater victories than wins ever could be. The cross was a loss if considered from the perspective of nightfall on Friday. A battle is not a war. Sunday was coming.
Step into today’s arena with a song of praise. Thank God for the fact and truth of his presence, his peace, and his power. Walk with God through the day in the confidence of that Sunday and all it makes possible. Work with God through the day with the certainty that he finishes what he starts. Wear your faith on your face with joy indescribable.
He is victorious. Give thanks to him. Live in the certainty that his love endures forever.
This is going to be a good day.
I will give thanks to God for his limitless love.
Our Father, how could we not thank you? Your love never fails, never runs out, and never expires. Your ways lead to certain victory. Receive our praise as we recognize you for who you are. Receive our thanks for every good and perfect gift we receive from your hand. Amen.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
