The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him. —Psalm 28:6-7

            What song are you singing to the Lord today?  What tune do you want to lift up to Him?  What song will exalt Him?  What song will give thanks to Him?  What song comes to your mind?  This one comes to mine— 

            I acknowledge my own weakness and any strength I have is from my Lord.  He is my protection and I need not fear anything because He can be fully trusted to always do the right thing even when I do not understand.  He helps me and oh how I need His strength and help.  My hearts exalts You oh Lord and I am so thankful to You.

            I thank You for:

  • Being my strength when I am weak (II Corinthians 10:9-12)
  • Being my shield, protecting me (Ephesians 6:16)
  • Being totally trustworthy (Psalm 119:138)
  • Being my help (Hebrews 13:6)
  • Being worthy of exultation (97:9)
  • Being the song in my heart (Psalm 32:7)

Brothers and sisters, fellow followers of Jesus, we should be the most thankful people on the planet— full of joy and song.  He has given us His Word and we are not in the dark.  We know much of His plans and purposes as He has given them to us in His Word.

Dear Father, I am thankful for all You are and for all You have done, are doing and will do for me.  I am amazed and overwhelmed when I think about how immense You are and yet You consider me.  I cannot grasp the greatness of Who You are, but I can understand the smallness of who I am.  Therefore it astounds me that You desire relationship with me.  I thank You and may I be faithful to You by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Dear Son Jesus.
