Vital Step to a Radiant Faith-Give Thanks to the Lord

August 24th, 2023 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year to Shine, today’s Vital Step to a Radiant Faith is to Give Thanks to the Lord.

We have a good reason to give thanks to the Lord. Psalm 136 tells us that He is good. His love endures forever.

This Psalm points to other reasons that we have to give thanks to God. He does great wonders. He is our Creator. He is our Provider. He guides us with His mighty hand and outstretched arm.

There is an interesting structure to this Psalm. There are 26 verses in Psalm 136, and in each verse, we see the phrase, “His love endures forever.” This is the reality that brings stability and security to our faith. This is a truth that we can celebrate every day in every season of life, because every day we wake up, God is there with His love reaching out to us.

Giving Thanks to the Lord is a vital step to a Radiant Faith that makes a difference in our world.

Freedom Phrase-Giving Thanks

November 22nd, 2019 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Redemption, today’s Freedom Phrase is based on Psalm 106, verse 1.

“Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.”

This description about God shows up in the Bible at least nine times, and is always connected with giving thanks or praise to God.

Out of God’s goodness, God provides us with good and perfect gifts. His enduring love does not have an expiration date. That means that His love for His people will never wear out or fade or become irrelevant. God is good. God is love. That is His nature in the realm of eternity, and because of His attributes, His followers have reasons to give thanks forever.

Through Jesus, we are set free to give thanks to the LORD for His goodness and enduring love.
