Yes, I Will

Can you say to God, “Yes, I will?” When this blog launches, the elections for the United States will have taken place. Some will be thankful for the persons elected to office, and some will not be so thankful. A heart of thanks is not always easy to maintain when things do not go according to your own personal will. Yet, we are called to give thanks in all circumstances and not to follow our own will, but God’s. We see this confirmed in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 which states, “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

The Thanksgiving Day holiday is approaching soon, although we should be giving thanks each day. May I suggest during this month that you follow the steps of the Psalmist David in Psalm 9 as one way to express your thanksgiving. I trust your response to be, “Yes, I will.” You will notice that each verse begins with the words, “I will.” So, in saying, “yes” you will purpose to do each step this month.

Psalm 9:1-2 (ESV)

“I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart;”

(Suggestion: Take a moment and pour out your heart to Him with thanksgiving. The term “heart” refers to your mind, will and emotions—Your whole self or every fiber of your being; meaning not half-heartedly.)

“I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.”

(Suggestion: Remember and express all the marvelous things He has done on your behalf. Give praise for the mighty things He has done.)

“I will be glad and exult in you;”

(Suggestion: Declare and magnify your love and devotion to Him with great joy. To exult means to be joyful, rejoice, and triumph.)

“I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.”

(Suggestion: Play some music and sing praises to our God Most High! Glorify, shout forth, and honor His Name—which means all that He is.)

 

These steps that David took are a wonderful ways to express thanksgiving to our marvelous God. Thank you for saying “Yes, I will.”

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
