The Lord has been reminding me of two things in the last year or so.  In Psalm 95 and 96, both of them are brought to mind.
Psalm 95:2a – “Let us come before Him with thanksgiving…”
Psalm 96:2b-3 – “proclaim His salvation day after day. Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all peoples.”

The Lord asks us to do two things throughout Scripture.
  • Be thankful – Here are a couple of verses:  Phil. 4:6 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  I Thess. 5:18 “give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
  • Proclaim Him – 2 Cor. 5:19c-20a “And He has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors.  Philemon 1:6 “I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.”  Wow – sharing our faith gives us more understanding!!
I want to be more thankful for all the Lord has done and is doing and just of who He is!!  And I want to proclaim Him to those around me!  May we remember this as we go through our days!
