Give Thinks to Our Creator
Topic: Thanksgiving

That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works. (Psalm 26:7 KJV)

In Open Bible says, “Todah is a noun, translated ‘thanksgiving,’ derived from the verb yadah, meaning ‘thank.’ In some instances praise was given to the Lord by acknowledging and abandoning sin. This is seen in the story of Achan, when Joshua urges him to ‘give glory to the Lord God of Israel , and make confession to Him’ (Josh. 7:19). Most often, however, thanksgiving is given to God in songs of liturgical worship. Examples of places where this specific term is used include Ps. 26:7, Ps. 42:4, 5, and Jon. 2:10. Sometimes thanksgiving is expressed by a choir and procession, such as the one described in Neh. 12:31. There is also thanksgiving given with the thank offering in Lev. 7:12 and Amos 4:5. (Strong’s #8426)”


What do you thanks for this Thanksgiving? Many of us may believe that Thanksgiving means to celebrate the harvest that happened in four century ago in the United States . Even though this may correct historical tradition in our country, thanksgiving originally began all the way back to Genesis. Noah, for example, gave a thank to God by giving Him a burnt offering after him and his family were freed from the ark.


Thanksgiving doesn’t have to be in specific date or making a delicious family dinner, because it’s all about relationship with God and people. There are no greater gifts we could receive than our connection with God and our people daily.


What do you thank for? Is your healing from God? Is your job promotion from your boss? Is your new car from the car dealership? Whatever we want to thank for, we must first give thank and honor to our Heavenly Father. There is no one who can better understand each of us, except God. Jeremiah 1:5 tells us, “Before I (God) formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”


We then give thank to our people. There is right time to give thank to our people first, but this also goes to God also.
