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 One thing that makes the God of heaven deserving of our thanks is that He is mighty. His power and strength alone make Him worthy to be thanked. Take a look through scripture to see how He delivered the Israelites from Egypt by parting the Red Sea! Or how He tumbled the walls around Jericho with a trumpet blast when He began giving Israel the land He promised their forefathers. Imagine the strength that would be necessary to exercise the self-control to allow your only child, your son, to die a horrible, gruesome death. God did that for you and me. Imagine having the power to stop the gruesome events of your own crucifixion, but being strong enough to endure the torture out of love. Jesus did that for us. Take a few minutes to thank Him, now.
