He is Deserving

by Debi Baker

"Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations."
Psalm 100:4-5 NKJV

I woke up this morning with this passage on my heart.  It matters not if God blesses me or if I believe He will or not.  All that matters is that He deserves my thanks and praise.  All that matters is that He is good and His mercy covers a multitude.  All that matters is that His truth will forever be...truth.

God is a good God.  He is a God of second chances, third chances, tenth chances.  He wants us to worship and serve Him.  He created us with a free will knowing that we would mess up and need forgiveness and restoration.  He desires the best for us and we always seem to shortchange Him with our lackluster admiration.

I pray that God knows my heart...and I know He does.  I know He knows I desire to be the best me I can be so that I can serve Him and His Creation!  He forgives me when I mess up.  I think He must roll His eyes at some of my shenanigans but He still forgives me because He knows my desire is to please Him.

Yes, I will enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise.  I will be thankful to Him and bless His name.  Thank you, Lord, because You are good and You extend Your everlasting mercy to me.  Thank you, God, that Your truth never ceases to be truth!

Have a blessed day!
