“In God we have boasted all day long, And we will give thanks to Your name forever.” 

Thanksgiving Day

“In God we have boasted all day long,
And we will give thanks to Your name forever.  Selah.”  Psalm 44:8.

As we count our blessings on this Thanksgiving Day, the following Scripture comes to the front.

It is like we are in a fog of a variety of pleasant sights but then the fog lifts and we see the one rock-solid mountain of God’s grace.

“And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.  Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.  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), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.  For by grace you have been saved through faith;  and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;  not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.”  Ephesians 2:1-9.
