God id God
A number of women were surveyed as to what they were thankful for.
"For teenagers because they give parents an opportunity to learn a second language."
"For husbands who attack small repair jobs around the house because they usually make them big enough to call in the professionals."
"For children who put away their things and clean up after themselves. They’re such a joy you hate to see them go home to their own parents."
Psalm 1003 Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
a psalm for giving thanks
1-2 -- A call to worship
Verse three - the reason
He is God! God is so great he had to reveal himself
God is in a category all by himself.
God is absolute.
He made us and he owns us!
He also entered into relationship with us.
God is Good
God Owns us. Now what is he going to do with us.
A second call to praise:
5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
He is Good!
NIV Nahum 1:7 The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,
Psalm 136 - his love endures forever
Lamentations 3:22 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
24 I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him."
25 The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him;
26 it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.
