Thanksgiving Countdown ChallengeT(hanksgiving) -19 Devotion
I Want to Sing & Dance
At one time, I belonged to a church that had this verse on the gate as you drove onto the property. We often think of this verse in terms of church, giving thanks as we enter the House of the Lord. Today, I want you to consider it in a different way. Think of His gates as the door of your home & His courts as the world outside that door. As you go out into the world today, out into His courts, His world, take a moment to give thanks for everything & everyone that the Lord puts in your path.
It’s very easy to become overwhelmed by the world, to curse its existence & everyone in it. Ok, maybe it’s not that bad but the world, people can be very frustrating. It’s hard to give thanks for the very things that seem to be making your life difficult. However, this is exactly when you want to give thanks. Giving praise for everything you encounter throughout the day can give you a different perspective on the world. You may find yourself entering His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise every time you leave home!
