Give thanks to the God of gods. Give thanks to the Lord of lords. Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever. Psalm 136:2-3, 26
06/01/09 The Hebrew for the phrase “give thanks” is yadah. It means to throw, shoot or cast. Giving thanks is apparently like an Olympic sporting event. Just toss those thanks out there! Whenever you are reminded of something that you are thankful for, throw a quick prayer God’s way. Like a relaxing game of catch with your Heavenly Father. Sometimes, you may need to be a bit more deliberate, like aiming an arrow at a target. Seek out something to be thankful for and shoot a word of thanks to God for that specific thing. Then there are those times that are like relaxing in a boat or along a peaceful shoreline while you are fishing. Cast those prayers of thanks to God as well. Whatever sporting event you happen to be participating in, be sure to include the Lord with a word of thanks.
