It Is Good to Give Thanks

Give Thanks

Reading the Word

Psalm 92:1–4 (ESV)

1 It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; 2 to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, 3 to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre. 4 For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.

Understanding and Applying the Word

Here we read about the goodness of worship. We read that it is good to “give thanks”, “to sing praises”, and “to declare”. These three things are the external acts of worship, which are a response to the works of God.

Worship is always a response to the acts of God. The psalmist writes in verse 4, “For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.” It is indeed good for us to worship the Lord because doing so reminds us of all that God has done for us. He is a great God who is worthy of our praise! Let us give thanks, sing praises, and declare his great deeds to all!
