What a wonderful country in which we live that a day of Thanksgiving has been set aside to remember the bountiful blessings God has bestowed upon this land. “GOD BLESS AMERICA!”

Think with me for a moment, on the mighty God who blessed this land.  The One who created the heavens and earth. He is God The Father, God The Son, and God the Holy Spirit, the great Three-In-One. He spoke His Word and all living things came into being.  He has always been and He always will be, for He is Alpha and Omega, the Beginning  and The End. There is none like Him nor will there ever be.  He is wisdom, knowledge, understanding, love, power, peace, light and life, plus so much more. God knows all things and He is ever present for us all the time.  Since God created man, He knows our minds, our heart, and the very number of hairs on our head.  He knows our thinking and our actions.  Nothing about our thoughts and actions ever escape Him.  Yes, God is all seeing and all knowing.  Everything about God is pure, holy, just and true.  GOD IS A GOOD GOD.

And...God loves us!  Oh how He loves you and me! Such love!  He wants the very best for us and makes it available to all who will believe in Him. What great mercy he has given.  He came from Heaven to be our Savior and Redeemer - His name is Jesus, Yeshua, The Christ, Son of the living God -- King of Kings and Lord of Lords.   He became sin for us and what a glorious sacrifice He willing made! Yes, He took all of our meanness, sin and every wrong thought and deed we would ever conceive, then nailed all things contrary to us on a horrible, cruel cross.  He set us free by His own holy blood.  A perfect sacrifice for sin.  

The results we receive by walking with Him is love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, meekness, faith and self-control.  Truly, He is joy unspeakable and full of glory.  He is all the wisdom, understanding, strength and truth we will ever need.  It doesn’t get any better than that!

Why oh why do we so often choose to ignore Him and not willing to put Him in His rightful place in our mind and heart?  Why would we want to live our puny little life without walking in His presence and love? Why does our mind continually dwell on ourself instead of Him?  Well... 1)  there is an enemy that “keeps things stirred up” so to speak, until we learn that Satan is a defeated foe, with no power over us, unless we give it to him.  2)  God gave us a will to choose and we are a result of our choices, 3) Our flesh: mind, will and emotions, want to run toward our own desires instead of God’s because we came into this world as sinners.  

The answer:  Trust in the Lord, with all your heart, confess your sins and trust Jesus to be Savior and Lord.  Then, He becomes the power within to make us to be more like Himself.  That is great good news!  Always and forever, we make the choice to be whatever we think we want to be.  Dear friend:  Choose to seek God who made you because He loves you and a plan for your life.

God The Father, God The Son, and God the Holy Spirit, is so worthy of our praise and thanksgiving because...

T - He is TRUTH

A - Always AVAILABLE to us (when we seek)
N - He NEVERS leaves us

THANKSGIVING IS THE KEY WORD:In every thing give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18
