Thanksgiving Thursday

BE PARTICULAR IN YOUR THANKS TO GOD

“Thank God for success in our callings and affairs, comfort in relations, and comfortable places of abode…

It is God who equips us with strength and makes our way blameless, who has blessed the work of our hands; and it may be that though our beginning was small, yet our latter days will be very great.

Our houses have been safe from fear, and there has been no rod of God upon us; so that glad songs of salvation have been in our tents from day to day.

With our staff it may be we have crossed this Jordan, and now we have become two camps; and it is God who settles the solitary in homes.

If we have enjoyed life with our relations, and they have been to us as a lovely deer, a graceful doe, we must give you thanks for it; for every creature is that to us, and no more, that you make it to be.” (Matthew Henry)

Thanksgiving Thursday

BE PARTICULAR IN YOUR THANKS TO GOD

“Thank God for granting you recovery from danger…

For signal recoveries from danger by sickness or otherwise.

When perhaps there has been but a step between us and death, and when we have felt that we have received the sentence of death, and have been ready to say, ‘In the middle of our days we must depart; we are consigned to the gates of Sheol for the rest of our years’; yet in love you have delivered our lives from the pit of destruction and cast all our sins behind your back.

When the snares of death have encompassed us and the pangs of Sheol have laid hold on us, we have called on the name of the LORD and have found that gracious is the LORD, and righteous, yes, our God is merciful; we have been brought low, and he has saved us, and has delivered our souls from death, our eyes from tears, and our feet from stumbling. We will therefore walk before the LORD in the land of the living.” (Matthew Henry)
