Sunday, by the gracing of the Holy Spirit, let us see if the Spirit can clarify the words in Psalms 8:3-6. First let us clarify whose words are spoken by the psalmist. II Samuel 23:1-2 Now these be the last words of David, David the son of Jesse said, and the man who was raised up on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel, said, (vs) 2 The spirit of the Lord (God) spake by me (David), and his (Gods) word was in my (Davids) tongue. God is speaking the words in the psalms not David. Psalms 8:3-6 When I (Jesus) consider thy (Gods) heavens (literal and symbolic of us), the work of thy (Gods) fingers, the moon (literal and symbolic of Jesus) and the stars (literal and symbolic of angels), which thou (God) hast ordained; (vs) 4 What is man (us) that thou (God) are mindful of him (us)? and the son of man (Jesus) that thou (God) visitest him (Jesus)? For thou (God) hast made him (Jesus in the flesh) a little lower than the angles (messengers of Spirit), and (God) has crowned him (Jesus) with glory and honour. Thou (God) madest him (Jesus) to have dominion over the works of thy (Gods) hands; and thou (God) hast put all things under his (Jesus) feet. Jesus has dominion over all things not us. May the Spirit grace you with his words.

It is God's will for us to be thankful because He knows that it is good for us to have an attitude of thankfulness towards Him. When we have a thankful attitude and an attitude of appreciation for Him and what He does for us, it does not leave much room for ingratitude in our lives.In reading Psalm 8:3-6, we can see ourselves in perspective to God's creation:When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man, that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet. God has given us-humanity-dominion over the things that He has created. And beyond that, out of all humanity, we have been given a tremendous responsibility to develop righteous character and have the potential of living eternally in His Kingdom. This thought alone should help us to be thankful each day.

You will find strength to do the impossible when you give thanks


Dejvi Kadivnik's comment on 2016-03-13 00:44:04:

Praying touches God's heart - He will respond if we are truthfull and commited, but it may take some or relativelly long time, according to His will.Prayer should also be complemented with thanksgiving - we most likely do not know what we have until we loose it: peace, health, family, frends, job... There are so many people which are in much worse situations than we and would like to have it as good as we do , but we only look at those we see or assume have it better than we - those same people might think the same things about some other people having it better. We should remain content and steadfast in prayer and always giving thanks to God through Jesus Christ.

Thanksgiving is a key to move the hand of God to favour us


Cecilia's comment on 2013-12-16 11:22:36:

This is amazing, god is wonderful. I urge you all who read this, all of you who feel sad, lonely, unhappy, disappointed, all of you who have lost all of the hope u had in the Lord - praise him, even in the hard times. Even if he feels far away and that he has let you down, he is still there. <3

Pray, praise and thank him even more and you will see him and hear him the more you seek him. As my pastor said: You have to seek Him, before he seeks you. God bless you all. Amen


Rev. Donald Greene's comment on 2013-11-23 09:18:43:

When we come to the point in our relationship with Jesus Christ that we trust him with all our heart,mind,soul,and strength , we will give him thanks for all things because no matter what the circumstance looks like what we are going through, we have the victory.


Pansy's comment on 2013-10-18 07:05:53:

God knew us before we were formed, he knows what we can bear; we are encouraged to give thanks in everything because there is a reward in doing that, the most important thing tho, is to find the strength and courage to do it when the trials are at its peak; know what?, practice makes perfect, lets be thankful and praise our God through it all.


Rosalinda E. Punzalan's comment on 2013-09-10 08:09:37:

bruce seru's comment on 2013-05-22 20:14:25:

give in every season good or bad rich or poor happy or sad because it is the will of GOD concerning you


John Radcliffe's comment on 2013-05-21 13:01:11:

In giving thanks, we remind ourselves that God is in control and that he has a purpose in whatever circumstance we find ourselves. Knowing that He has a purpose, we are reminded to seek His purpose and our place in within it. Giving thanks is the first step in yielding to the will of God.


Norma's comment on 2013-03-15 20:47:48:

I have found that in my deepest trials the outcomes always brought forth tremendously fulfilling fruit. The hard part was the disappointing strife.


henry's comment on 2012-11-19 14:31:30:

It is so true because you should give thanks to God, no matter what.


sylco kogo's comment on 2012-10-31 09:37:33:
