Welcome to our series, 5 Days of Thanksgiving Family Devotions! We pray these 5 days of devotionals will encourage your family to reflect on God’s many blessings during this season. Catch up on the whole series here.
“Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;
make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wondrous works!
Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!
Seek the Lord and his strength;
seek his presence continually!
Remember the wondrous works that he has done,
his miracles, and the judgments he uttered,
O offspring of Abraham, his servant,
children of Jacob, his chosen ones!”
Psalm 105 gives us wonderful instructions for how to show thanks to the Lord—by telling other people about His works, singing praises to His name, seeking His presence every day, and remembering the many good things He has done! When we think about spreading the Good News of God and what He has done for us, it is important to reflect on the story of the Bible and the many promises God made to His people from the beginning of time—and the marvelous ways He kept those promises by sending Jesus.
1. What are some ways we can give thanks to God this Thanksgiving by telling other people about Him?
2. What is your favorite song that sings praises to God?
3. What is one way you can “seek” God’s presence (which means to look for ways to spend time with Him)?
Let’s ask God to help us see opportunities to tell other people about Him and His wonderful works.
