“Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.” Our reasons for thanksgiving are both voluminous and diverse. The Psalmist here makes the reason for his praise, not the blessing of family and friends, not health and property, not the prizes of shopping endeavors or winning sports teams, his reason for thanksgiving is simply the greatness of God and His Kingship over all things. What am I thankful for today? How much of my thanksgiving recognizes God as King and source of life? Great God, keep my focus upon You above all. Amen.
