“A Month of Thankfulness” Devotional Series (Day 30)

“O Give Thanks Unto The Lord (3)

SIH’s Think On These Things: Psa 106:1-2


Ps 106:1-2 (KJV)     Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can shew forth all his praise?


In our last devotional of this series, we will end with these two questions….

“Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD?”  

“who can shew forth all his praise?”


Over the past month, as we have thought on a few of the multitude of ways that our Lord deserves our thanks, it all boils down to this one issue.  After all is said and done, we cannot begin to really appreciate nor thank our Lord as we should.  This theme is repeated again and again by the Psalmist in a variety of contexts…


Ps 40:5 (KJV)

Many, O LORD my God, [are] thy wonderful works [which] thou hast done, and thy thoughts [which are] to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: [if] I would declare and speak [of them], they are more than can be numbered.

Ps 71:15 (KJV)

My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness [and] thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers [thereof].

Ps 139:17-18 (KJV)

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

[If] I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.


King David understood the dilemma that we face…. we serve a Lord that is so kind, loving, gracious and merciful that He is CONSTANTLY blessing us.  Every breath we take, every flower that we may see, every second we are not in the Lake of Fire, is a miraculous blessing from our Lord…. How can we begin to recognize all of them and then give Him the appropriate praise?  All we can do is fall upon our knees and ask the Lord forgiveness for failing miserably to recognize and thank Him for His continuous displays of tender love He has shown towards us.


Let us all come before our God and thank Him for the forgiveness that He grants to us as we fail to recognize all His works on our behalf. 


May the Lord bless this series and increase our appreciation for all He has done for us.


May the Lord bless us as we “Think On These Things”.
