Giving Thanks

November 14

Read: PSALM 107:1-3, 33-38

“O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever” (v. 1).

It’s hard to believe that we will celebrate Thanksgiving soon! For many of us, it may not feel like we have much to be thankful for this year. But if we take a moment to consider what we have survived in this year alone— the COVID-19 pandemic, the turmoil in our country surrounding racial justice, our own personal trials—perhaps we discover once again that God’s steadfast love endures forever, even, if not especially, in difficult times. God has remained faithful and true to us! We are redeemed, restored, and refreshed.

This psalm may have been written thousands of years ago, but we continue to live it out today. Let us thank our God!

Lord, you know what we need before we need it. Thank you for your Holy Spirit in the midst of these challenging days. We celebrate you for who you are. In Jesus’s name, AMEN.
