Thank The Lord He Is God

A Psalm of Thanksgiving. Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations. (Psalm 100)

Thank The Lord He Is God

There is reason for a man to rejoice and be thankful. It does not come from the elements of human wisdom, carnal pleasure, wealth, or fame. A heart full of thanksgiving comes from acknowledging the Lord is God and that man is created for the glory of God. Every nation on earth is established by the will of the Creator. The world and the expanse of the universe are held in the palm of God’s hand. Life is created by the Lord. All of the knowledge of men from time beginning are molecules of the smallest atom compared to the vast storehouse of wisdom contained in the mind of God. God is Lord. Man is not.

The Lord is God. It is a powerful yet simple statement. There is no need for elaboration. He existed before the world was created. By the spoken word, the firmaments were established, seas created, animals formed, and man created in the image of his Creator. The sun, moon, and stars all abide in their place because the Lord is God. Life begins, and men die in the cycle of life. Generations come and go, and there is nothing new under the sun. God remains the same. The Lord that spoke to Adam and Eve in the Garden is the same Lord that now speaks to men through the written word. All the attempts of human wisdom to discredit the Bible are broken hammers against the anvil of God’s word. God is Lord. Man is not.

Man is created by the power of God and not by his own power. Through the wonders of science, human wisdom has opened the vistas of the human body to the levels of DNA and molecular understanding. But man cannot create life and extend life at his whim. A baby born as a male child will always be a male child, regardless of the science of human wisdom. Trying to change the gender of a human is an impossibility because God created the DNA for the specific gender of the child, and no laboratory can reach into the power of creation to change that. It is God that has made man, not man that has created himself. All men are the people of God through creation. He is the Creator Shepherd who controls all things as all things exist in Him. God is Lord. Man is not.

When a man understands his place in the world and the dominance of God as Lord, he is filled with thanksgiving. The Lord is good, and His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations. Human wisdom is fickle. The wisdom of God is true and righteous. Men fail; God never fails. There is gladness to serve the Lord because He is God, and through His knowledge, the heart can find peace, joy, happiness, and contentment. Thanksgiving comes from seeing that the Lord, He is God, and He is in control, and He knows and understands – so why worry? Having a thankful heart will remove the pain of worry. This begins by allowing the heart to know the Lord, He is God – and man is not. Now you have a reason to sing praises to the Lord. Rejoice. The Lord, He is God.
