Enter into Thanksgiving

As American families and friends get together for Thanksgiving Day, we raise our voices in unison to give praise and thanks to the Lord, for He is the Source and Provider who has so blessed our nation. We give thanks for our Savior, for the Bible, for our nation, for our parents and grandparents, for our church leaders, for our armed forces and their families, and for our basic provisions of food and shelter. We thank the Lord for victory over COVID-19 in our nation and victory with the results of the 2020 elections, binding all evil, false reports, lying, and every unrighteous acts of fraud in the vote counting and certification process. We pray a shield of continued protection over President Trump, Vice President Pence, the Cabinet, and the members of both houses of Congress. May the God of Israel, whom the Pilgrims blessed, continue to watch over us and bless America.

Determine to cultivate an attitude of gratitude that unlocks God’s blessings all year long. As we enter this holiday season, reach out to those who need a helping hand and keep a journal of gratitude to record the goodness and mercy of the Lord.

Psalms 106:1, “O give thanks to the LORD; for He is good; for His mercy endures forever.”  

Psalm 100:1-5, “Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!  Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing.  Know that the Lord, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves.  We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise.  Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.  For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.”

Luke 9:16, “Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people.”

Psalms 103: 1-5, “Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

Ephesians 5:18-20, "And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Colossians 3:15, “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.”

1 Thessalonians 5:18, “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
