Our Sacrifice

Psalm 50.14,15
Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God, and keep the vows you made to the Most High.Then call on me when you are in trouble,and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.

The simplicity of His heart, His truth, His desire is beautiful. It is accessible to everyone of us.

No need for wealth. No need for fame. No need for doctorates or medals of honor or proof of great accomplishments.

No need for big extensive celebration. No painstaking building of altars. No mess, no fuss.

This is what He desires as a sacrifice from you, from me: thankfulness.

Tune your heart today to thanksgiving. Remind yourself throughout the day to thank Him, to acknowledge His provision, to remember to be like the one who returned to give thanks.

Set a kitchen timer, an alarm on your phone -- whatever it takes to prompt a moment of thanksgiving here and there throughout the day. Sometimes we need to purpose to establish new habits, and thanksgiving should be a habit. It should mark His people. It releases joy and honor and strength. And it glorifies Him.

In the hardest moment, stop and thank Him that He is there with you in the midst of that moment. When your heart leaps for joy at some good news, remember Him with praise. As you put your hand to the daily grind that is neither sorrowful or joyful but needful, thank Him for strength to be diligent.

Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God,
and keep the vows you made to the Most High.
Then call on me when you are in trouble,
and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.
Psalm 50.14,15
