Happiest of Thanksgivings Everybody!
As we come to this Thanksgiving Time, I found myself pondering what Jesus himself might have been thankful for...
And then I recalled His expressing thanks to His Father there in Matthew 11.
Jesus had just finished severely rebuking three Galilean cities for their refusal to believe on Him even though He had done a multitude of mighty works in the midst of them.
Immediately afterwards He prayed,
“I thank thee, O Father, Lord of Heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes."
Whoa!!! He was thankful for His Father saving the simplest of folks like you and me, and revealing His truth to the most ordinary of people, again like you and me!
Which means He truly likes us, we rag-tag ragamuffins of whom others may take little note of or perhaps mock us for our lack of sophistication, education or accolades.
And I am so thankful for that amazing, astounding fact.
Indeed, “Happy is the people whose God is the LORD”.
Amen and Amen!!!
