Thankful, God is the Teacher, and He is the only Triumphant and True God.

Hello again everybody! I’m so glad you have joined us on this beautiful Monday morning. This is truly a milestone of a celebration point right here, as we have now approached the 20th letter of the alphabets, letter “T” in order to thank God for who He is according to His Word! I am also pausing to thank Him for you who have been so diligent in following and praising Him along with me every Monday morning since we began. Let us now celebrate by thanking God with these Gratitude Gold Nuggets which confirms that God is our Teacher, He is Triumphant, and He is the only True God. Isn’t that worth thanking Him for! To know it is He who promised to instruct us and Teach us in the way we should go; that it is He who is Triumphant in everything; and that it is He that has assured us that He is the True God, our everlasting King, is absolutely worth the highest praise. Let us thank Him!

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you” (Psalm 32:8, ESV).

“Then Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the LORD, saying, I will sing to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea” (Exodus 15:1,ESV).

“But the LORD is the true God; he is the living God and the everlasting King. At his wrath the earth quakes, and the nations cannot endure his indignation” (Jeremiah 10:10, ESV).

But just as importantly, Dear Lord, I thank you for being the only True God, in Jesus name, amen. By Hertistine Washington /keeponthanking.com

Thankful, God is the Sanctifier, Savior, and He is the Shepherd.

Yesterday after celebrating America’s 245th birthday, I am again so thankful to celebrate and thank our God everyday for who He is according to His Word. These scriptural Gratitude Gold Nuggets (as I call them) are not lengthy, hopefully making it easier for you to remember who God is. As we approach letter “S”, we are definitely thankful that God is our Sanctifier, Savior, and Shepherd. Being our Sanctifier, God lets us know He has sat us apart to a sacred purpose those who have accepted Him as Savior. He also has saved us from our sins through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Lord. Not only that, He also shepherds us whom He has sanctified and saved. We can be mighty grateful that God in all His wisdom knew His saved and sanctified children could not make it on their own; they would need a Shepherd to guide, watch over, and care for them in this dark and evil world.

“Keep my statues and do them; I am the Lord who sanctifies you” (Leviticus 20:8,ESV).

“Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other” (Isaiah 45:22,ESV).

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want” Psalm 23:1.ESV).

Please pray with me: Dear Lord, I will keep on thanking You for who You are. Thank You for being my Sanctifier, Savior, and Shepherd, in Jesus name, amen. By Hertistine Washington / Keeponthanking.com.

Thankful, God is our Refuge, Revealer, and Rewarder.

On this last Monday in the month of June, let us continue our search through scripture for Gratitude Gold Nuggets as to who God is. Can you believe we have now arrived at the 18th letter of the alphabets? It is the letter “R”. Beginning with this letter, I find there are many attributes of God we can be grateful for, such as He being the Redeemer, Reconciler, Resurrection, and Restorer; even to that of being a Resting Place for the restless. In addition to those, I chose to share briefly that God is also our Refuge, Revealer, and Rewarder. The scripture bares record that we should trust Him at all times, and we can pour out our hearts to Him for He is a refuge for us. It also testifies that God is the revealer of deep and hidden things. He sees what we can’t see. He knows what is in darkness, and the light abides in Him. Just as important, whoever comes to God must believe that He exists, and He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. I hope you will join me in the following scriptural nuggets of praise and gratitude for our God.

“Trust in the Lord at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. Selah” (Psalm 62:8, ESV).

“He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him” (Daniel 2:22, ESV).

“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him” (Hebrews 11:6. ESV).

Please pray with me: Dear Lord I will keep on thanking You for who You are. Thank you for being my Refuge, Revealer, and Rewarder in Jesus name, amen. By Hertistine Washington / keeponthanking.com

Thankful, God is the Qualifier, and it is He who quickens (gives life), and quiet the soul with His love.

I’m so grateful again to praise God for another opportunity to thank Him for who He is according to His Word. As we proceed in our search for Gratitude Gold Nuggets, I know you may be wondering, what can we thank God for that begins with letter “Q”?. Well, first of all, we who have accepted Jesus as our personal Savior can declare it is God who qualifies us to share in this great inheritance with the saints; nothing that we have done qualifies us. God is the Qualifier. There is also the guarantee that the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead will also give life to our mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in us. Besides that, the Lord our God has promised to be in the midst, a mighty one who will save, and rejoice over us with gladness, and quiet us by His love.

“Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light” (Colossians 1:12, ESV).

“If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you” (Romans 8:11, ESV).

“The Lord your God is in the midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing” (Zephaniah 3:17,ESV).

Please pray with me: Dear Lord, I will keep on thanking You for who You are. You are my Qualifier who quickens me, and quiet my soul with your love, in Jesus name, amen. By Hertistine Washington / keeponthanking.com

Oh what another beautiful day to thank and praise God for who He is according to scripture! As we continue our search for Gratitude Gold Nuggets, I’m excited that we have now arrived at the letter “P”. God’s Word bares record that He is the God of Peace, and He is with us to give us peace at all times in every way. It is His peace that keeps us from being troubled in mind. Besides that, He is also Perfect. Whatever He does is without blemish; there are no flaws or errors in Him. Furthermore, He is Preeminent, the head of the body, the church, the beginning, and the firstborn from the dead, as the following scriptures declare:

“Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all” (2 Thessalonians 3:16, ESV).

You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew 5:48, ESV).

“And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent” (Colossians 1:18,ESV).

Please pray with me: Dear Lord, I will keep on thanking You for who You are because You are the God of Peace; You are Perfect, and You are Preeminent in Jesus name, amen. By Hertistine Washington / keeponthanking.com

“Even before a word is on my tongue, behold O LORD, You know it altogether” (Psalm 139:4, ESV).

“Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! if I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand will lead me, and your right hand shall hold of me” (Psalm 139: 7-10), ESV).

Please pray with me. Dear Lord, I will keep on thanking You because You only are the Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent God, who is all powerful, all knowing, and everywhere at all times, in Jesus name, amen. By Hertistine Washington / keeponthanking.com

To Dine with Jesus

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:20). On the first Sunday of the month many churches come together to commune in the Lord’s Supper. This supper, however, is no ordinary meal. It does not consists of 4 main courses with 3 sides and 3 desserts. This meal is a meal of remembrance to commemorate the death of our Lord Jesus Christ. The main course is His body and His blood which He shed for the remission of sins on Calvary for the whole world. This supper is a time for those who have accepted Jesus as Savior to come together and dine with Him.

Do you know you are also invited to eat with Jesus? He promised long ago in His Word that all can eat with Him if they only do one thing. That one thing is to invite Him into your heart by faith and receive Him as your Savior. Just believe on the Lord Jesus Christ that God has raised Him from the dead, and you shall be saved, and be privileged to eat with Jesus not only in this world but the world to come.

In His Word He also reminds us that He’s standing right now at the door of your heart patiently waiting for you to hear His voice, open the door, and let Him in. It is as simple as that! Being saved is the only criteria that makes it possible to join in this beautiful feast of remembrance, the Lord’s Supper. Why not accept Him today and come on in and eat and commune together with Him! Then and only then will you come to know what a wonderful time of rejoicing it is to dine with Jesus!

“Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “‘Take, eat; this is my body.”‘ And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “‘Drink of it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness for sins” (Matthew 26: 26-28).

I will keep on thanking God for a wonderful meal of remembrance and the privilege to participate with Him. Dear Lord, thank you for inviting the whole world to eat with you. Thank you for setting the table, making it possible through your shed blood, for all to commune with you who has accepted you as their Savior, amen. By Hertistine Washington / keeponthanking.com.
