Psalm 107:1 - TRUE THANKSGIVING!
Psalm 107:1 (NIV) Give thanks to the LORD,
for he is good; his love endures forever.
Separated from friends, unjustly accused,
brutally treated - if any man had a right to complain
it was this man, languishing almost forgotten
in a harsh Roman prison. But instead of
complaints, his lips rang with words of praise and
This was the apostle Paul - a man who had
learned the meaning of true thanksgiving, even in
the midst of great adversity. Look carefully at
what he wrote during that prison experience:
"Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord,
always giving thanks to God the Father for
everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (Eph.
Think of it! "Always giving thanks ...
for everything" no matter the circumstances. His
guards and fellow prisoners must have thought him
crazy - but that didn't stop him. Thanksgiving for
Paul was not a once-a-year celebration, but a
daily reality that made him a joyful person in
every situation. May that be true of us.
Because of what Christ has done, we, too,
can sing songs of praise at midnight (Acts
16:25). No matter how dark the season or how
painful the trial. God is still good and worthy of
praise. [Hope for Each Day by Billy Graham]
