Proclaim With The Voice of Thanksgiving

HT for graphic:  3.bp.blogspot.com

Even though today is two days after Thanksgiving Day, I think that we should remain thankful to God always, and proclaim with grateful hearts our love and thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ. Why? Because He loves us and He alone is our salvation!  Praise God for all that He has done for us!

We need to be grateful, not only on Thanksgiving Day, but every day, for family and friends who share their lives and love with us, and give us joy in our hearts.

The Bible mentions the term “thanksgiving” several times in many different verses.

Some of my favorites:

Psa 26:7

That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving,
And tell of all Your wondrous works.

Psa 69:30

I will praise the name of God with a song,
And will magnify Him with thanksgiving.

Psa 95:2

Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;
Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.

Psa 100:4

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

Psa 107:22

Let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving,
And declare His works with rejoicing.

Psa 116:17

I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving,
And will call upon the name of the LORD.

 

We can even see the message of salvation (and, our need to share it with others!) in many of the verses!

 

Jon 2:9

But I will sacrifice to You
With the voice of thanksgiving;
I will pay what I have vowed.
Salvation is of the LORD.”

Phl 4:6

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

Phl 4:7

and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Col 2:6

As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,

Col 2:7

rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it [fn] with thanksgiving.

Col 4:2

Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving;

Col 4:3

meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains,

Col 4:4

that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.

Col 4:5

Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time.

 

We are told of the coming Millennium via Isaiah’s prophecy and the End Times via Revelation 7:

 

Isa 51:3

For the LORD will comfort Zion,
He will comfort all her waste places;
He will make her wilderness like Eden,
And her desert like the garden of the LORD;
Joy and gladness will be found in it,
Thanksgiving and the voice of melody.

Rev 7:9

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands,

Rev 7:10

and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”

Rev 7:11

All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,

Rev 7:12

saying:

“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom,
Thanksgiving and honor and power and might,
Be to our God forever and ever.
Amen.”
