So we, Your people and sheep of Your pasture, will give You thanks forever; we will show forth Your praise to all generations. — Psalm 79:13
As one of the “sheep of Your pasture,” Shepherd God, I am blessed each day by Your protection, provision, guidance, and love. When I fall down, You pick me up. When I am weak, You are strong. May I “give You thanks forever” and boldly proclaim to future generations Your goodness, Your mercy, and Your grace.
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. — Psalm 107:1–2
Lord God, You are good, and You are merciful. Through Your Son, Jesus Christ, and His sacrificial death on the cross, You called me to be in relationship with You, to even be called Your child. You redeemed me “from the hand of the enemy,” from the eternal consequences of my sinful ways. Knowing that this redemption is rooted in Your unwavering mercy gives me peace for today, for tomorrow, forever. May I therefore always give You thanks, for You are good!
