Greetings and Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
Here is my third thought on being thankful.
When we thank God, it helps us to magnify Him! To magnify means to make His name great or big, especially in one’s on mind or situation. So why does thanking God help us to magnify Him? Because we are either thanking Him for what He has done or better yet we are thanking Him for who He is! “I will praise the name of God with a song, And will magnify Him with thanksgiving.” (Psalms 69:30 NKJV)
– We refuse to give ourselves over to murmuring and complaining! It is impossible to magnify God with our mouthes and murmur at the same time. We set ourselves to magnify Him and keep negativity out of our mouths.
– We stop being self focused or self-centered and turn all our attention to Him! We become the more mindful of who our God is, what He has done for us and all He affords us through His blessing.
– So we magnify Him!
Stay on Target! And if you are traveling this holiday, be safe and stay tuned for tomorrow’s post.
