Give thanks to the God of gods.I have tried to start this post at least three times now, but I keep getting stuck. I want to start off with some commentary about how God is The God. There is no one like Him. There is no power or authority anywhere in this universe that is anything near who He is. But what keeps throwing me off are those two words at the beginning, "Give Thanks..."
His love endures forever.
Usually when I allow my mind to delve into the bigness and the greatness and the uniqueness of God, it doesn't lead me to thankfulness. Not that it shouldn't or couldn't, but I am usually just starting to feel a little small.
Here is a picture taken by the Voyager Spacecraft on Feb. 14, 1990. It was taken at a distance of over 4 billion miles from earth. In the picture, the blue circle that was added later is around the earth which is shown is a band of sunlight.
This picture is called the pale blue dot because one man when he saw this said something about every man who had ever lived, lived his life out on that pale blue dot. God is so big.
Notice though the end of the verse, just as the end of every verse in this amazing chapter, "...His love endures forever." As infinite as the universe is, it is NOTHING compared to the bigness of God's love! His Love is Forever!
Why should my mind go to giving thanks? This God of all gods loves even me.
