Psalm 136:1  Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good.
His love endures forever. (New International Version)

His love endures forever. This psalm repeats these words again and again and again. The repetition makes a point. Read the whole song and see. In case you are having difficulty thinking of things to thank God for on this Thanksgiving Day, the psalmist gives us twenty-six distinct ideas to stimulate your gratitude.

Each of these twenty-six remembrances of God’s faithfulness in the past serves to remind us that as God has been, so he will always be. He never changes. He is good all the time, the song says. The song also says, all the time God is good. This is truth without any mixture of error.

God is love. He demonstrates his love from generation to generation, and from age to age. He made up his mind before the world began that he loved you. Before you were born, he knew you and loved you. Before you turned your heart toward him, he knew you and loved you. As you took your first steps of faith, he knew you and loved you. Wherever you happen to stand today, he knows you and loves you.

There’s more, so much more. Wherever he leads from where you are today, he will do so in love. His goodness and love are always available to give you guidance. Psalm 23:6 says, 

“Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever.” 
(New Living Translation).

I will give thanks from a grateful heart to the Giver of All Good Things.

Our Father, you are the Giver of All Good Things. Every good and perfect gift comes from your hand (James 1:17, 18). You have loved us forever. You will love us forever. You guide and you provide. Everything you do in our lives is a product of your love that endures forever. How good you are! How amazing is your grace! How abundant is your mercy! How could we not sing your praise and offer our thanks? Hallelujah and amen!

Psalm 100:3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—

Daily D – 1 Kings 19:3-9

1 Kings 19:3-9 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, “Get up and eat.” Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, “Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.” So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night. Suddenly, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Daily D – 1 Kings 14:12-13

1 Kings 14:12, 13 “As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He alone out of Jeroboam’s house will be given a proper burial because out of the house of Jeroboam something favorable to the Lord God of Israel was found in him.“

Daily D – 1 Kings 12:6-7

1 Kings 12:6, 7 Then King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon when he was alive, asking, “How do you advise me to respond to this people?” They replied, “Today if you will be a servant to this people and serve them, and if you respond to them by speaking kind words to them, they will be your servants forever.”
