September 16, A Thankful Heart and Tongue

Share

Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name.
—2 Samuel 22:50
All good and beneficial things the world affords are gifts of Almighty God and come to us out of His lovingkindness. Add to these all the wealth of grace which comes to us through blood atonement: revelation, redemption, mercy, the gift of eternal life and in the indwelling Spirit. For all this, for everything we are in debt to God forever. We can never repay our heavenly Father for the least of His goodness.
In view of all these things, a thankless man must be a bad man if for no other reason than that he is thankless. Ingratitude is a major sin.
The man of enlightened mind will always feel deeply humbled when he considers God’s goodness and his own insignificance. He is likely to be very modest about demanding anything further; he will be too conscious that he already enjoys far more than the circumstances warrant. TET003-004
There are…holy tongues, yielded to the Holy Spirit and under the control of the fire of Pentecost. The good tongue is often a silent tongue. We all talk too much. Hand your tongue over to God; ask Him to take it and help you to remember it is not your own. PC070
Tozer on the Holy Spirit.
