THANK GOD

 

November 20, 2016


 

 

Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.

Psalm 145:3 (NIV)

 

Go through his open gates with great thanksgiving; enter his courts with praise.

 Psalm 100:4 (TLB)

 

They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.  The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.  The LORD is good to all; ...  The LORD is faithful to all his promises ...  The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.  The LORD is righteous is all his ways. The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on Him in truth.  He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.  The LORD watches over all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy.  My mouth will speak in praise of the LORD.  Let every creature praise his holy name for ever and ever.

 Psalm 145:7-21 (NIV)

  

  

WHY WE PRAISE GOD?

  

  

Because:

  

    1.      He gives us what we don't deserve. 
      

Since God did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won't God, who gave us Christ, also give us everything else?

Romans 8:4b-6 (NCV)

 

The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.

  

 

2.     He doesn't give us what we deserve.

 

  

The LORD is good to all; 

 

 

3.    He is good. 

 

 

4.    His word is good.  

 

 The LORD is faithful to all his promises

 

 

5.    He braces us in the tough times. 

  

The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.

 

 

6.    He does everything right.

   

  The LORD is righteous is all his ways

 

 

WE PRAISE GOD WHEN:

 

 

1.     We call on Him because we believe in Him. 

 

The LORD is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth. 

 

*He draws near to us. 

 

2.     We respect Him. 

 

 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him.

 

 *He pleases us.

 

 3.     We love Him.

 

 The LORD watches over all who love him

 

 *He watches out for us.

 

4.     We voice His praise. 

 

They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.

My mouth will speak in praise of the LORD,

 

*He give us fulfilling lives.
