I have noticed that when things are not going the way we want them to and our world seems to be caving in, we call out to our Heavenly Father and beg for His intervention. However, when life gets back on track, we quickly forget to give God the glory and thanksgiving He deserves. We give the credit for the turnaround to all sorts of things: our own intellect, modern medicine, luck, we were in the right place at the right time, etc. While God may use some of these to fulfill His purposes, the glory belongs to God. I pray we give credit to who it is due…and shout from the mountaintops our Thanksgiving and praise to God…so that all may see His good works and worship Him…today and always!
Give thanks to the lord and proclaim his greatness. Let the whole world know what he has done.
I Chronicles 16:8
