For my morning devotions I was reading in Psalm chapter 50 this morning and it has a passage that really goes along with this Thanksgiving week and I would like to share it with you.
"Hear, O My people, and I will speak;
O Israel I will testify against you;
I am God, your God.
I do not reprove you for your sacrifices,
and your burnt offerings are continually before Me.
I shall take no young bull out of your house
nor male goats out of your folds.
For every beast of the forest in Mine,
The cattle on a thousand hills.
I know every bird of the mountains,
and everything that moves in the field is Mine.
If I were hungry I would not tell you,
for the world is Mine, and all it contains.
Shall I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of male goats?
Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving
and pay your vows to the Most High;
Call upon me in the day of trouble;
I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me."
Our God owns everything. What He does really want from us is our thanks. Do you do that every day? It is something that we need to remember far more often than just the 4th Thursday in November.
