Express & show your thanksgiving from @nathanielblow
... “....But Brother Nat, since God knows all things and looks upon the heart, why then is it necessary to still say and show it”? Here’s how the Psalmist puts it. “It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to SING praises unto thy name, O most High: To SHEW forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,”
Psalms 92:1-2 KJV “It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to the Most High. It is good to PROCLAIM your unfailing love in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening,”
Psalms 92:1-2 NLT. Can you notice the words SHEW & PROCLAIM??? God Loves it when we express the condition of our hearts to Him. He is a Speaking Spirit. And made us in his image. Hence we are also speaking beings. “15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the FRUIT OF OUR LIPS GIVING THANKS to his name”
This principle even applies to human beings. You don’t assume people know you are grateful. You tell and show them you are. Because many times Thanks not expressed, is taken as Thanks not conceived.
After you have THOUGHT about His goodness, You should PROCLAIM it.
That’s why it’s not just “THANKSTHINKING” But “THANKSGIVING”
After you think, You THANK !
