Thanks Be To God
Give God the glory.
Thank God for health and healing.
Be restored by grace.
We were discussing how marvelous it is to be touched by God’s miracle-working power, and to step from death into life as health is restored by God’s grace.
As I listened to him talk about his miracle and the time since, I heard him say something very important. He said that he never fails to thank God each day for his healing and to testify to others about God’s healing touch.
He never takes his miracle or his health for granted. He thanks God for health and healing for today and every day.
If you have received a miracle, remember to give God the glory. This is an important weapon against the enemy. A miracle is not received because of self worth; it is given because of God’s grace. Never fail to give Him thanks.
Consider the words to the glorious hymn “Thanks To God,” written in the late 1800’s published in the Swedish Salvation Army paper.
Thanks to God for my Redeemer,
Thanks for all Thou dost provide!
Thanks for times now but a memory,
Thanks for Jesus by my side!
Thanks for pleasant, balmy springtime,
Thanks for dark and stormy fall!
Thanks for tears by now forgotten,
Thanks for peace within my soul!
Thanks for prayers that Thou hast answered,
Thanks for what Thou dost deny!
Thanks for storms that I have weathered,
Thanks for all Thou dost supply!
Thanks for pain, and thanks for pleasure,
Thanks for comfort in despair!
Thanks for grace that none can measure,
Thanks for love beyond compare!
Thanks for roses by the wayside,
Thanks for thorns their stems contain!
Thanks for home and thanks for fireside,
Thanks for hope, that sweet refrain!
Thanks for joy and thanks for sorrow,
Thanks for heavenly peace with Thee!
Thanks for hope in the tomorrow,
Thanks through all eternity!
What can you thank God for right now?
It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy loving kindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night (Psalm 92:1-2).
