Daily Gratitude

In every new day that God gives us, He provides opportunities. These opportunities involve responsibilities, blessings, privileges, tasks and sometimes surprises. To be sure, we’re usually busy and have a list of things we need and hope to accomplish. Yet, for every day the Lord gives us, we should be grateful. The word gratitude expresses thankfulness.

Let’s consider a few Scriptures taken from The New American Standard Bible to apply and follow as we live out each day.

I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart;
I will tell of all Your wonders. I will be glad and exult in You;
I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High (Psalm 9:1, 2).

The Lord is my strength and my shield;
My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore my heart exults,
And with my song I shall thank Him (Psalm 28:7).

Praise the Lord!
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting (Psalm 106:1).

Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow (James 1:17).

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father (Colossians 3:17).

Demonstrating gratefulness is not only pleasing to God, but it encourages our souls, and can be a testimony to others.
