Day 20

Grace Day

from the Give Thanks reading plan

Psalm 105:1-6

BY She Reads Truth

Scripture Reading: Psalm 105:1-6

Use this day to pray, rest, and reflect on this week’s reading, giving thanks for the grace that is ours in Christ.

Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name;
proclaim his deeds among the peoples.
Sing to him, sing praise to him;
tell about all his wondrous works!
Honor his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Seek the Lord and his strength;
seek his face always.
Remember the wondrous works he has done,
his wonders, and the judgments he has pronounced,[a]
you offspring of Abraham his servant,
Jacob’s descendants—his chosen ones.
—Psalm 105:1–6

    This verse is a good reminder that our God is a joyful God, and serving Him is a joyful experience!

  2. Kathy says:

    I have enjoyed this study so much. The thing that has stuck with me the most is that gratitude is a choice. It is not something that is always based on feelings, but sometimes a conscious decision to choose gratitude. I like that in 1 Thess.5:18 it says to give thanks IN everything, not FOR everything. I must choose to be thankful.

    I am using the she reads truth website on my phone along with the devotional book. On this new format, when I hit reply to respond under someone’s comment, I am unable to do so.
    Am I doing something wrong?

  4. Julie Whitacre says:

    Seek His presence. What a wonder to realize he longs for us even more than we long for him. And as we are beautifully dressed in the righteousness of Jesus, he’s not hungry for our obedience – but for our presence.

  5. Sue says:

    On the first day of this study, Jessica Lamb wrote, “gratitude is an active response to our unchanging God”.

    One thing that has stuck me over these past three weeks is that indeed, gratitude is an active response. It doesn’t just happen. It is not necessarily a feeling but rather obedience, a choice, and sometimes it is something I have to fight for.

    Today’s reading reminds me again how active I must be in cultivating gratefulness.
    So may I follow the words of the psalmist and:

    GIVE THANKS to the Lord
    CALL on his name
    PROCLAIM his deeds
    SING to him
    TELL of his works
    HONOR his name
    SEEK the Lord and his strength
    SEEK his face

    And may my life always be one of gratitude, thanksgiving, and praise.

    1. Sharon Ide says:

      I see this more in every passage as well Sue! The active response of thanksgiving comes forth in praise, in rejoicing, in remembering His good works, telling them to others, and in loving others, and these just from the past few days of passages!

    2. Katie Getman says:

      Thank you for sharing, Sue! I really needed to see the passage outlined that way. Thank you!!

    Thankful for this community and the encouragement all of you are to keep seeking after Jesus. I love this reminder in the psalm today that our hearts can rejoice as we seek Him and His strength even in the midst of our weakness or challenges. Goes well with 1 Thess 5:16-18 from yesterday of rejoicing always, praying continually and giving thanks in all circumstances in Christ Jesus this morning. Meditating on these truths as I have struggled with choosing gratitude over the last year as a new mom in the midst of chronic sleep deprivation but wanting to be grateful rather than resentful. My little guy is a blessing from the Lord and all the good things in my life are from Jesus. I just need to keep my eyes on Him and all that I have rather than any lack.

      Jen, I remember those days. So sleep deprived that I would cry. I was given some great advice. If you are home, “sleep when the baby sleeps”. Forget the house, chores callbacks, The mom needs to be rested! Even if you just lie down for 20 minutes and close your eyes. Rest. As a mom of older children now 12 and 17 there are many times when I wish I could go back to those times when I can hold them in my arms again. It goes by extremely fast. My son now can pick me up and hold me in his arms. It reminds me of the book: “I Love You Forever”. I say this two both my kids all the time. And they know what I’m talking about.

      1. Jen Brewer says:

        Mari, thank you so much for your encouragement. I have tried to take advantage of even those brief rests when he sleeps, which are huge! Enjoying the snuggles all the more as I think about him being grown and bigger than me some day. My husband and I both cried reading that book when I was pregnant and I get tears every time I read it. Thanks again for the kind words ❤️❤️❤️

    I’m to remember His works, His wonders and His judgments. His works and His wonders encourage me and remind me of His power, creativity and generosity. His judgments remind me though He is a good and loving God, He is also not a God to be trifled with. He is holy.
