Psalm 145:10&11 - “All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord, and all your saints shall bless you! They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom and tell of your power.”
Continuing the theme of thanks, we sing the ancient song of King David from the Psalms. In these verses we find two simple ideas about thanks that the Lord deserves.
We begin with the idea that all God’s works give thanks to Him. Birds sing songs as soon as the sun rises in the morning. The mountains skip and the trees of the field wave their hands in praise. Jesus said if the kids were quiet singing his “hosanna” entrance to Jerusalem, the rocks would cry out. As people made in his image, we have even more reason to thank him for all he has done.
This praise of our become a blessing. The Hebrew word “Baracha” indicates good words spoken from a greater one to lesser one. Think of a father blessing his children, a king blessing his people, or God blessing us. But here, we bless God! This is how our thanks is taken. Thanking God is a word of blessing to his greatness.
Thank God today. All of creation is doing it, and in doing so we bless his name.
