Daily Devotions: Thank God

From God Listens by Jack Countryman

listensThanking God for His many blessings and His gracious work in our lives is right and good; it is, in fact, a life-giving response to our heavenly Father.

Also right and good is praising our Creator and Redeemer God for who He is, praising His infinite goodness and power, wisdom and love. God created us to worship Him, and He alone is worthy of our adoration and praise. So may the joyful cry of the psalmist be ours as well: “Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! While I live I will praise the Lord; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being” (Psalm 146:1–2).

When praise becomes part of our daily lives, our attitudes will change and the presence of God will be manifested in everything we do. It is a lifestyle that God will bless, and it will allow us to walk closer to our heavenly Father.
