Receive

Praise the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endures for ever!

God is good. He is good to us, and merciful to us. He gives us good things.

Sometimes when God gives us good things, we have a hard time allowing ourselves to receive them. We give ourselves guilt trips, or entertain anxious thoughts about whether or not we are really supposed to have this, or whether or not it is fair to others, or whether or not others would approve. We may feel like we don’t deserve it, and it’s true, we don’t deserve it, but God’s grace covers us and we are to receive what God gives us and be thankful unto Him. Giving God thanks gives God glory, and glorifying God is what we were created to do: we are created for His glory. All things are for God’s glory.

Whoso offers praise to God glorifies God.

Receive what God gives you. Give God thanks and praise. God is glorified in this.

Praise the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endures for ever!
