So Much To Be Thankful To God:

Pastor’s Corner: November 2017:


So Much To Be Thankful To God:

1 Chronicles 16:34-36 states”1Ch 16:34 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever. 1Ch 16:35 And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise. 1Ch 16:36 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel for ever and ever. And all the people said, Amen, and praised the LORD”.


As we approach the season of Thanksgiving, we have so much to be thankful to God for. For myself, I am thankful that for the last six (6) months that I have been the pastor of the Tabernacle of Faith Baptist Church. I can thank God that I was called to minister in the city that I was born and raised. I am a native son of the very community that I serve. As we ponder this month, take an inventory of your own life and find the things for which you are grateful to God. For some, it might be renewed health. For others, it is seeing a year or even a day that they have never previously witnessed.


One final thought: We should not be thankful to God just once each year on Thanksgiving day. We should continuously praise God every day of our lives. He is always with us and has never forsaken us through the myriad seasons and the highs and lows of our lives. God is good all the time. s, the more you will ultimately possess.
