Be Thankful for These Seven G’s This Thanksgiving

For those of us in the United States, on Thursday we’ll be gorging ourselves on roasted turkey with sage dressing, green bean casserole, buttery mashed potatoes, cranberry salad, and any number of other delectable dishes.

At our table, before we eat a single bite, we count our blessings. Normally, those blessings include a roof over our heads, food on our table, and the love we have both from God and in our family. But this year, thanks to our pastor’s message last Sunday and Psalm 145, we’ll also be contemplating our thankfulness for these seven G’s.

God’s Greatness. “Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable.” (v. 3)

God’s Goodness. “They shall utter the memory of Your great goodness, and shall sing of Your righteousness.” (v. 7)

God’s Grace. “The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy.” (v. 8) 

God’s Guidance. “The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works.” (v. 9)

God’s Gospel. “They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, and talk of Your power, to make known to the sons of men His mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of His kingdom.” (v. 11-12)

God’s Government. “Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures throughout all generations.” (v. 13)

God’s Gifts. “The eyes of all look expectantly to You, and You give them their food in due season. You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.” (v. 15-16)

Prayers for a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving! J

  1. I like this!! HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you and your family.

    I watched the opening ceremony of the National Bible Bee the other day. I saw you all. So far I haven't watched any more because it said it was being edited and available later. I hope to watch some more of it soon.

    1. That's so exciting, Charlotte, to know you were watching! It certainly is fantastic viewing! They had some difficulties over the course of the competition and some parts were delayed. Perhaps spiritual warfare?

      Happy Thanksgiving! :-)
