It is that time of year again when we remember what we are thankful for.  Of course we should be thankful each and every day for our families, the people around us, and most of all for what Jesus did for us even though we don’t deserve it.  God’s word is a perfect example of what we should give thanks for.

Psalm 136

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.  His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods.  His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords:  His love endures forever.

to him who alone does great wonders, His love endures forever.
who by his understanding made the heavens, His love endures forever.
who spread out the earth upon the waters, His love endures forever.
who made the great lights— His love endures forever.
the sun to govern the day, His love endures forever.
the moon and stars to govern the night; His love endures forever.

10 to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt, His love endures forever.
11 and brought Israel out from among them His love endures forever.
12 with a mighty hand and outstretched arm; His love endures forever.

13 to him who divided the Red Sea asunder His love endures forever.
14 and brought Israel through the midst of it, His love endures forever.
15 but swept Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea; His love endures forever.

16 to him who led his people through the wilderness; His love endures forever.

17 to him who struck down great kings, His love endures forever.
18 and killed mighty kings— His love endures forever.
19 Sihon king of the Amorites His love endures forever.
20 and Og king of Bashan— His love endures forever.
21 and gave their land as an inheritance, His love endures forever.
22 an inheritance to his servant Israel.  His love endures forever.

23 He remembered us in our low estate His love endures forever.
24 and freed us from our enemies.  His love endures forever.
25 He gives food to every creature.  His love endures forever.

26 Give thanks to the God of heaven.  His love endures forever.

May God bless you and your family this Thanksgiving and remember, His love endures forever.

God Bless, Paul Gilbertson
