Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 1


Give Thanks to God For Who He Is

Day 1 Psalm 136:1-9 Give thanks to God for His Creation
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 1-3)
1 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
2 Oh, give thanks to the God of gods! For His mercy endures forever.
3 Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords! For His mercy endures forever:

4 To Him who alone does great wonders, For His mercy endures forever;
5 To Him who by wisdom made the heavens, For His mercy endures forever;
6 To Him who laid out the earth above the waters, For His mercy endures forever;
7 To Him who made great lights, For His mercy endures forever—
8 The sun to rule by day, For His mercy endures forever;
9 The moon and stars to rule by night, For His mercy endures forever.

[Sharing] If we look upon God’s wondrous creation with humble hearts, we will gasp with admiration. But if our hearts are yet more humble, we will see within His wondrous creation His wondrous love. These verses call Him the God of gods and the Lord of lords: they speak to His goodness, His doing of great wonders, and His wisdom, and they provoke us to ponder His power, His creation, and His wholeness. Their central message is but one: we are to give thanks to the Lord for His mercy endures forever! In the circumstances of the pandemic and social unrest since early 2020, let’s see clearly that only God never changes and His mercy endures forever. When we see this, we may all let God be God in our lives and give all the thanks and honor to Him.


Day 1 詩篇136:1-9 為著 神的創造稱謝祂
2 你們要稱謝萬神之神,因祂的慈愛永遠長存!
3 你們要稱謝萬主之主,因祂的慈愛永遠長存!

4 稱謝那獨行大奇事的,因祂的慈愛永遠長存!
5 稱謝那用智慧造天的,因祂的慈愛永遠長存!
6 稱謝那鋪地在水以上的,因祂的慈愛永遠長存!
7 稱謝那造成大光的,因祂的慈愛永遠長存!
8 祂造日頭管白晝,因祂的慈愛永遠長存!
9 祂造月亮星宿管黑夜,因祂的慈愛永遠長存!

【心得分享】我們若是存謙卑的心,看見 神奇妙的創造,一定很自然的湧出驚嘆!若是再謙卑一點,就還要看見 神在創造中向我們所顯的慈愛。這幾節經文稱耶和華為萬 神之 神,萬主之主;提到 神的善、神的獨行大奇事、神的智慧;讓人思想祂的能力、祂的設計、祂的周全...。中心就是要我們稱謝耶和華,因祂的慈愛永遠長存! 在2020年這滿是動盪的環境中,讓我們更是要看到萬事萬物都會改變,唯有 神永不改變,且祂的慈愛永遠長存。也因為這樣的看見,讓我們都能把 神當作 神,把祂配得的感謝與讚美都歸給祂。
