Today is a good day to give thanks to the LORD collectively. We may be enduring a season of discontent, but all in all, we have so many reasons to be thankful. We must praise him in the darkness while we wait for the fulfillment of our hope. Let the light of our song change our hearts, so they are bent toward the majesty of the Almighty and that he is merciful as we wait for our King to come and rule and reign. The world may be full of turmoil, but because we have Jesus, we can be at peace knowing we have nothing to fear.
A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. Psalms 100
