Praise and Thanksgiving
2 Chronicles 7:6
The Upward Look

“The priests took their positions, as did the Levites with the LORD's musical instruments, which King David had made for praising the LORD and which were used when he gave thanks, saying, "His love endures forever." Opposite the Levites, the priests blew their trumpets, and all the Israelites were standing.” 2 Chronicles 7:6 NIV
The dedication of Solomon’s Temple was a great time of praise and thanksgiving to the Lord. This great day was filled with music, prayers, sermons, and offerings. A large part of their praise to the Lord was giving thanks. They praised and thanked God because “His love endures forever.” God’s great love for all has provided a way for sinful people to be forgiven and made right with God. This great love ought to cause us to lift our voice in praise.
Lord God, I am thankful for Your great love that sent Jesus to provide the sacrificial offering that paid for the penalty for my sin. I praise You for Your great love, mercy, and grace.
