Why do we need to say thank you Jesus ?
Is it because of the good health that you can have that you cannot give yourself?
Is it because you are alive and not dead? Is it because of the hope that you have? Since where there is life there is hope?
Is it because even though you’ve been challenged you’ve not drowned in your challenges?
Is it because you’ve been called beloved of God?
Is it because we have victory in Jesus Christ?
Is it because the enemy, the devil and his cohorts have been shamed and embarrassed?
Why exactly do we need to thank God?
Perhaps it is because you have a good job or are able to fend for yourself?
Then should the people who are struggling in work life not thank God?
Perhaps it is because your marriage is working so well. But should the sister whose marriage has just crashed not thank God?
Should I thank God because He has given me a big car or a big house?
Should I only thank God when I celebrate the number of my years on the planet?
Should He thank God because He is a Father and has been able to father 5 boys?
Shouldn’t the maker of the universe be thanked because He is God?
Isn’t the Maker and Creator of all things deserving of all praise and glory?
Isn’t the One who is all good entitled to praise and glory from His creation?
Isn’t one who is good whether life is good to us or not, worthy of all adoration?
So like ‘Casting Crowns’ , I will praise Him in the storm.
I will live my life for His glory because He is worthy.
Because He is awesome in power and majesty.
Because He is the Lord of all glory and the king of Kings.
Yes I will thank God because He is God.
