Good to Give Thanks

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…

Psalm 92:1-2

If the Lord has been good to us, we should be thanking Him and praising Him.  Of course, that is a silly statement: “IF the Lord as been good to us”?  The Lord has been very, very good to every one of us.  The Psalmist says here “it is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name”.  It is good for us to thank Him and praise Him for all He has done for us.  In verse 2, it is also good for us to “shew forth His lovingkindness and His faithfulness”. 

Since the Lord has obviously been good to us and faithful to us and has loved us, we should thank Him, praise Him and tell others of the great things He has done.  Thanking the Lord deals with letting Him know that we are grateful for what He has done.  Praising the Lord deals with letting others around us know that we are grateful for what he has done.  Everyone around us should know for certain that the Lord has been good to us and that we are grateful for it. 

Praising the Lord with a spirit of thankfulness is always a “good thing”!
