Thanksgiving Resolve

I will enter into his gates with thanksgiving in my heart!  I will enter His courts with praise! I will say "This is the Day the Lord has made." I will rejoice for he has made me glad!  These are the words to a song that I sang as a child.  They have been streeming through my head since last night.  The song is based on Psalms 100:4

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

This is a statement of resolve.  It's a choice.  It's my Spirit telling my Flesh...be thankful, praise Him, be thankful to Him, Bless His name. The song says...I WILL...I WILL...I WILL.

As the list sounds off for Thanksgiving preparations with shouts of "Me First...Me First!" we mustn't don't forget to enter into the Presence of the Lord with Thankgsiving and Praise.  You will bless His name and He will give you Joy!

Resolve

"This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."   Psalms 118:24

I love that the Word of God is alive and fresh!  I love that every time I read it, it speaks to me. This is the day the  Lord has made...I've always loved this verse.  I've often quoted this verse as a reminder that everyday is a gift from God and my thanks to Him should be on my lips from the moment I rise to the moment I sleep.

Today, as I was reading Psalms, I read the same words but saw the need to emphasize WILL...we WILL rejoice and be glad in it. The Lord is good ALL the time but I don't always rejoice in His handy work.  Not because I don't appreciated it, notice it, or love it...but because I don't intentionally resolve to voice my rejoicing!  It is a choice....as with all areas of our lives.  To say I WILL rejoice...I WILL honor Christ...I WILL look to the King of Kings for my needs, desires and daily food.

The living Word of God...speaking to me again, about intentionality, resolve, choices...How sweet it is to know the King Of Kings, Lord of Lords loves me enough to write His words in paper form to love on me, correct me and raise me up in His power and grace.

I pray that today I WILL rejoice and be glad...no matter what the day holds for me.
