Saying ‘Thank You’

by Max Lucado

He brought them out of the gloom and darkness and broke their chains.
Let them give thanks to the Lord.”  Psalm 107:14-15

Worship is when you’re aware that what you’ve been given is far greater than what you can give.  Worship is the awareness that were it not for His touch, you’d still be hobbling and hurting, bitter and broken.  Worship is the half-glazed expression on
the parched face of a desert pilgrim as he discovers that the oasis is not a mirage.

Worship is the “thank you” that refuses to be silenced.

We have tried to make a science out of worship.  We can’t do that. We can’t do that anymore than we can “sell love” or “negotiate peace”.

Worship is a voluntary act of gratitude offered by the saved to the Savior, by the healed to the Healer, and by the delivered to the Deliverer.

One Response to Saying ‘Thank You’

  1. Stephen Bernard says:

    Saying thanks to the One is our life and provider of our needs, who allows us to live on no matter what we do, is worship, which many of us often fail. We always tend list out of things of ‘want’.
    Praise God for His unending love and forgiveness towards us. Amen.
    Thank you.
