Week 31

We Give Thanks

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; His love endures forever.

- Psalm 118: 1

There was a common quotation that has been such a great one in our church that I could still remember up to now. It helped me to be reminded of the fact that it holds and I bet my fellow Christians felt the same way too. I was a kid back then but even today, whenever I go to churches, it still come up. “God is good all the time and all the time, God is good” – this quote was one that I think I wouldn’t be able to forget.

Indeed, God is good. We all could agree with this one statement. In the beginning, when God was bringing everything into place, there was always something that he saw on everything he had done. On each day, he saw the things he made as good. “And God was that it was good” – this was the phrase that accompany each day that came along. He is our good creator and as his creation, we were made to reflect his goodness.

When the Lord made Adam, he had a good plan in store for him. He was to be the one to have dominion over the living things that was on earth. As it is said, we are made in his own image. He took care of him by providing him the things which he needed. He could eat from every tree in the garden of Eden where God had put him except for the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The garden was full of life by which Adam were dwelling.

The Lord then saw the situation by which Adam were. He noticed it and it was not incline to the goodness he wants for Adam. he was that Adam was alone and had no companions. He was all by himself. The animals were fine by themselves but upon looking at the case, he knew something have to be done. And the LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him of him a helper” (Gen. 2:18). The Lord saw that it was not good that Adam should live all by himself. And so, when Adam was asleep, he took a rib out of him by which he enclose the wound and thus made Eve. The Lord then saw the goodness of his work that Adam was now with a companion he called Woman for she was taken out of man (Gen. 2:23).

It would be a nice activity to just stop for a while and give a prayer of thanks for whatever things the Lord has given us and also for the further blessing he shall bestow upon you. In this way, we practice our attitude of gratitude. Everything we have now all came from him. He created the stuffs that are now in our houses. He brings forth the wonderful views we most enjoy out of the formation of the land and sea. A simple “Thank You, Lord” can go a long way and it can eventually make our day more than fine.

The Lord wanted what was good for Adam. He made Eve to be his companion and also had put him in a garden anyone can be amaze of. In the same way, more than what is good, he wants us to gain what is best in our life. He knows us in ways we do not know. We have to trust him as he continue to keep his commandments as time goes by.
