Psalm 138

 

Introduction:  “If you had been a Pilgrim in the Fall of 1621, would you have given thanks?”

 

That past year, leaving home and traveling to the new world, they suffered many hardships…

 

Psalm 138:

Five Reasons why we can be giving thanks to God:

 

#1--I can praise God for His love and faithfulness  (vs. 1-2)

#2-- I can rely on God to answer my prayers (vs. 3)

#3-- I can publicly exalt God for His ways (Psalm 138:4-5)

#4--I can depend upon God in difficult times (Psalm 138:6-7)

#5--I can trust that God will use me for His good purposes (vs. 8)

16”Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”   I Thessalonians 5:16-18    (NIV)
