Psalm 50:14 – Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God, and keep the vows you made to the Most High. 15 Then call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory… 23 giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God.
Many people spend a lifetime seeking to know my will, but my will is explicitly defined in my word. My will is for you to always give thanks. In every season and circumstance – give thanks. Your inability to thank me reveals your lack of trust. Trust me for I am trustworthy. Have faith in me for I am faithful. Take me at my word, and let me prove to you that my word is true.
In everything give thanks. Look to me , for I am good. When you are in trouble, call on me. I will not leave you in any trouble. Take heart. This is not the end. I will not leave you here. I will rescue you. I will reveal to you my salvation. But first, give thanks.
I am not interested in your money. I have enough money. What I want is your heart. I look for those whom I can trust. Acknowledge me in all your ways, and I will make your path straight. When you give thanks, you release my power into your situation. Whatever that situation may be, I cannot resist thankfulness. Not just saying things with your mouth in words, but giving thanks from a truly thankful heart.
When you’ve given thanks and call to me, I will rescue you and you will give me glory. You cannot give what you do not have. Therefore I will glorify you when you call to me. The key is thanksgiving. Thanksgiving opens the door to my presence and my glory. This is my will – give thanks.
