Making reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ

It is Good to Give Thanks to the Lord! 11/22/19

Dear River Reach Family,

It is good to give thanks to the LORD And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;

Psalm 92:1

It is easy to let our immediate struggles consume 90-100% of our thoughts. “How am I going to solve this problem?” “Wow this really stinks!” “This is really hindering me from being happy!” True joy in life doesn’t come from physical ease and smooth operating circumstances. True joy comes from meditation on the Lord and His promised loving-kindess and faithfulness to us. When we meditate on the Lord’s grace our lives will be filled with gladness and our hearts will overflow with thanks and praise to our generous Lord. The Lord wants to lift your weary soul by gazing on the riches of His kindness and faithfulness to you even in the midst of your trial. This Sunday we will join the psalmist in meditating on the reasons why it is good to give thanks to the Lord.

Sermon: “Finding Delight in the Lord” – Psalm 92:1-15
