Duration:44 mins 24 secs

America celebrates thanksgiving on the last day of November every year.  A day where the nation should stop and focus on our great God and Provider.  How did this come about?  What is it's significance?  Pilgrims in 13th December 1621, 1 year after landing in the area we call Massachusetts and planting crops, next harvest time they took 3 days to rejoice and thank God. 

In 1863 Abraham Lincoln made it law that the last Thursday in November was Thanksgiving Day.

It's great USA have a day set aside but we don't need 1 day, everyday should be our day of Thankgiving. 

What can we be thankful for? If you’ve still got breath in your body then there is every opportunity for you to rise up with God and win. 

Psalm 100.     Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands! Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the LORD, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.  I believe if we want to come into His presence we need to learn to be thankful.  

Psalm 95 : 1_3             Oh come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the LORD is the great God, And the great King above all gods.           Towdah :- to lift or extend ones hand to Him in praise, sacrifice of praise.   because we are saved.  

Psalm 107:1-3    Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy, And gathered out of the lands, From the east and from the west, From the north and from the south. 

19-22.         Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, And He saved them out of their distresses. He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions. Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men! Let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, And declare His works with rejoicing.

Do you want to get the ear of God? Jonah 2 : 9_10      "But I will sacrifice to you with the voice of thanksgiving, I will pay what I have vowed, salvation is of The Lord.  So The Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land."             Then lift up your voice of thanksgiving. Take the focus off what may not be going so good and thank Him, if for no other reason than He’s God and He loves you just as much as He does Jesus Christ. 

Phil 4:6 _ 7         Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.         With thanksgiving. Cover everything you do with thanksgiving. 

1 Thessalonians 5:18    in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.           In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Hebrews 13:15. Only one time to be offering the sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving to God, continually.
