3 Psalms Expressing Gratitude to God.
Gratitude is something we should practice daily. You should be grateful for the fact that you are alive and reading this because some people went to bed last night and didn’t wake up in the morning. They had plans for today that were never fulfilled because they came to the end of their days. In the past week alone, one of my uncle’s died. He travelled to Africa to attend his brother’s funeral, went to bed one night and had a heart attack in his sleep, his family members found him dead in his bed. Another friend of mine, her 24-year-old son had a sudden brain aneurism, as I write this, he is in a coma, the doctors don’t know whether he is going to survive.
when you can focus on what you do have and the sheer awesomeness of the God you serve, gratitude will spring forth from your heart like streams of living water. Click To Tweet
It is easy to operate out of an ungrateful heart because we are so focused on what we don’t have, but when you can focus on what you do have and the sheer awesomeness of the God you serve, gratitude will spring forth from your heart like streams of living water. Here are three psalms you can pray to show gratitude to God.
Psalms 150: There are really no words to describe how wonderful and mighty our God is, but Psalms 150 is a great place to start, it is short and sweet and one of the Psalms that I have memorised. Verse 6 is my favourite line of the Psalm, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!” In other words, if you’ve got breath in your body, you’ve got no excuse not to praise His holy name.
Psalms 95: With verses like, “In His hand are the deep places of the earth; the heights of the hills are His also. The sea is His for He made it; and His hands formed the dry land,” you can’t help but worship the Lord. This Psalm will quickly usher you into the presence of God.
Psalms 75: The wicked may think they have gotten away with their evil deeds, but we serve a righteous judge, and they will not go unpunished. Psalms 75 reminds us that our God is one of justice and in His time, His wrath shall be revealed.
May God bless the hearers and the doers of His word.
