Thankful, God is the I Am, Immortal, Invisible, and Impartial God.

As we come to letter “I”, let’s see what Gratitude Gold Nuggets we can discover to thank God for being who He is. You may remember there is an old spiritual that contains the phrase: “I love the Lord, He heard my cry and pitied every groan.” Just knowing that God is there hearing every cry is so comforting. No matter who is crying, makes no difference to Him; He’s not partial. He lets us know, He is present with us and we are not alone. God, The I Am God is with us.

Has anyone ever told you that they were with you and literally said these words, “I am here, for you?” How did that make you feel? I’m sure you felt strengthen knowing there was someone in your corner. Now how much better it should make us feel in knowing that God, the I Am, the Immortal, Invisible, and Impartial God is saying those very words to us today, “I am with you.”

God said to Moses, “I am who I am.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel: I am has sent me to you” (Exodus 3:14, ESV). “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41: 10, ESV)

“To the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen” (1 Timothy 1:17, ESV).

“For God shows no partiality” (Romans 2:11, ESV).

May the blessings of the Lord be with you today.

Thankful, God is Great and God is Good

So far we have found some great Gratitude Gold Nuggets as to who God is, based in His Word from A to F. Now as we look further, continuing with letter G, the first two nuggets that comes to my mind is, God is great and God is good. I’m not surprised that these two nuggets popped in my mind, because as a child my parents taught me (as many other parents taught their children) to say a simple prayer before meals. It went like this: “God is great and God is good, let us thank Him for our food, amen.” So from a child I was told, and now I have learned that the God my parents were speaking of is indeed great and good; and oh so worthy to be praised!

“Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable” (Psalm 145:3 ESV).

“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! (Psalm 34:8 ESV).

I will keep on thanking God for His goodness and greatness. Dear Lord, thank you for being so good and so great, in Jesus name, amen. By Hertistine Washington /keeponthanking.com

Celebrate The Risen Lord

When we think about it, we are blessed and grateful to celebrate so many special days and events in our lives; birthdays, anniversaries, promotions, raises, graduations, child’s first step; any and everything that is meaningful to us. We hang the banner, toot the horns, and shout hurray for that special day, as we should! We wish to recognize with honor and enthusiasm how important those milestones are and want others to know and join in celebrating with us. We use our creativity to go all out… even in a worldwide Pandemic to express to our love ones how proud of them we are for what they have accomplished, even ourselves.

Now for those of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, how much more should we celebrate Him! In Him we have far more reason to celebrate. Why? Because it is He who suffered and died, and rose again from the grave that we might have life eternal, granting us Salvation through His name. It is He who is the only One who has conquered death, even the death of the cross. It is He who paved the way that made a way for sinners to come out of darkness into His marvelous light, and it is He who did it all without sin. That’s not all; it is He who gives us hope and is now sitting on the right hand of Power interceding for us. Therefore, today and everyday let us hang high our banner of praise, spread far the royal red carpet of honor and gratitude, and hunk loud the horn of joy and victory in celebrating our Risen Lord! He indeed is worthy! Oh, bless His Holy name!

“Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died, more than that, who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us” (Romans 8:34 ESV)).

Bless be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” (1 Perter 1:3 ESV).

“Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” (Revelation 5:12 ESV).

I will keep on thanking God for Salvation through Christ Jesus. Let us pray: Dear Lord, I thank You for all You have done to provide eternal life for me and the world, in Jesus name, amen. By Hertistine Washington / keeponthanking.com

To Remember Jesus

“When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken” (John 2:22 ESV). Father God, I thank You for what You went through that we might have life eternal, life anew. We remember You. Before dying the death of the cross, You endured many things for us who were lost.

Thank You for suffering humiliation and degradation from a sinful, crooked, and rebellious nation. You were ridiculed and accused, lied on and spied on, spat on and ratted on, betrayed, but not dismayed; never saying a mumbling word which no one can say they heard.

Your hands and your feet were nailed to the cross for all to see, and hopefully one day to seek. You were whipped and given vinegar to sip; You were pierced in the side as the crowd stood by; some mocked, others cried and sighed. Yet, for all men you still died. Knowing that You had a job to do and that You were the only One worthy and qualified to see it through, we remember You.

You were buried in a borrowed tomb. Not to stay there, but to rise early that Sunday morning before noon! In three days, as You said, You were RAISED from the dead! Therefore, we shout Halleluyah to the King of kings and Lord of lords, for the joy and Salvation You did bring! Jesus, we remember You.

“Which he will display at the proper time, he is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords” (1Timothy 6:15 ESV).

I will keep on thanking God for all He has done in providing for my salvation. Dear Lord, thank you for the mind to remember and share what You did from the foundation of the world, from the cradle to the cross, and by Your resurrection to save the lost, in Your name we pray, amen.

Thankful, God is the Caregiver, Carrier, and Comforter.

As we continue in thanking and praising God from A to Z, let’s see what attributes of God that begins with letter C. Although there are many, three of them I find that is so significant for this day and time is that God has been and still is the Caregiver, Carrier, and Comforter. Definitely He’s the one who cares for us unconditionally, needs no help in carrying us from birth to old age, and has promised to comfort us as His children always. That’s just the kind of God He is. We are grateful.

“Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7 ESV).

“Even to your old age I am he, and to gray hairs I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save’ (Isaiah 46:4 ESV).

“I, I am he who comforts you; who are you that you are afraid of man who dies, of the son of man who is made like grass” (Isaiah 51:12 ESV). “As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem” (Isaiah 66:13 ESV).

I will keep on thanking God for His daily care, for sustaining me, and providing His comfort. I hope you will join me in this little prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for being my Caregiver, Carrier, and Comforter in Jesus name, amen. By Hertistine Washington/keeponthanking.com.
