The Person of Thanksgiving

For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.  Psalm 100:5 
Thanksgiving Thoughts
The Person of Thanksgiving
God is timeless.  The Bible tells us He has always been, but best of all that His love and mercy are everlasting!  He will never run out and the world with all its advancing technology can never surpass it. 
God is Good ... For the Lord is good
God is good all the time!  All the time God is good!  God cannot help but be good!  His loving acts toward mankind are always wrapped in His goodness and love.  God is good!  
For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.  Psalm 84:11
God is Mercy ... His mercy is everlasting
Mercy always triumphs over judgment. (James 2:13)  Christ is God's mercy to man! Think about that a moment.  Let it sink in our hearts and lives and it will gear our hearts to giving thanks to God for His everlasting mercy that is directed to us today and will be in the tomorrow and into eternity!
But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),  Ephesians 2:4-5
God is Truth ... His truth endures to all generations
God doesn't lie.  What He tells us today will be true tomorrow and into all generations.  It was true for the psalmist who penned these words and it is true to you and I who read these words.  Now give Him thanks!
But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.  Psalm 86:15

Thank the Lord today for His goodness, mercy and truth.  Thank Him for extending these attributes across generations, denominations, and nationalities.  These gifts are free to everyone who chooses to accept them. There are no pre-requisites or strings attached just pure unconditional mercy and love!

Scripture to Claim:

I will give thanks to the LORD according to His righteousness And will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.  Psalm 7:17
