Plans may be canceled, but I'm happy to announce Thanksgiving will never be canceled. It goes on forever as we see in this study of God's word and in an and in an pray that the message will be a blessing to you today we'd like to hear from our address is Baptist Bible.

Our box 17 oh 37, Cincinnati, OH 45217 and a and and and him and we continue the message today talking about things for which we should give thanks we give thanks to Jesus Christ is our Redeemer we come now to look at John chapter 10 verse 27 verse 27 my sheep hear my voice and I don't follow me and I give them eternal life, and they shall never need or shall any man count of my whole plea. Where is she and he cares should shut cares for his sheep. The ultimate destination of laying down his life. The matter what the circumstances where we are the sheep of his pasture. You may lose her job, but we, 19 disrupt our plan but we are sick, we are all around us in the world of uncertainty is struggling. We are then next let's think about what we are to give thanks for. Well, his blessings are numerous public? Haley said in acts 1728 for in him we live and move and have our jar very existence on that he was the creator and the beginning with the fact that he still sustains us is the cause of his his grades, his mercy, for in him we live and move and have our being in second Timothy 617 boxes charge them that are rich in this world that they be not high-minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God's who giveth us richly all things to enjoy the idea that religion is designed to make nothing about it that you can enjoy just reverse if we understand the truth of Scripture. If we understand the truth about the living God, who is the God who is our Redeemer stand. He intends for us doing life he has given us all things richly to in people sometimes say, well, I sometimes feel guilty and blessed so much. I have you don't want to be greedy rich individuals are described in the first part of this passage you want to be high-minded and trust in uncertain riches, but God bless you as you.

You are entitled to enjoy God gave to give him thanks and enjoy you have Ecclesiastes chapter 2 verse 24. There is nothing better for a man that he should eat and drink and that he should enjoy good in his labor. This also. I saw that it was from the hand of ought to be able to enjoy good in his labor. Give thanks for the give thanks for Psalm 103 this one. I'm sure you're familiar with because it describes this matter of giving thanks in such beautiful bless the Lord, O my soul and all that is within me, bless his holy name Psalms indicates it will be intense about praise the Lord blessed the Lord will blossom all that's within me.

I want this to be just a little routine matter, saying a few words at mealtime. I want this to be an ongoing situation where from the tips of my soul blessing. Here's bless the Lord my soul and forget not all benefits, all in the midst of troubles and trials. It's easy to forget the so cost about with all the things that you see your problems Mike not to forget forget not all his benefits, who forgiven all the iniquities to stop the isn't that enough to rejoice in every day that you live think that in spite of all the sin committed for a lifetime. The things that you've done the things that you said that you wish you had said the things that you fall your motivations have been wrong. The sins of commission and the sins of omission away, you can remove you can't account for you.

But he all our iniquities. No matter how deep they may be, he forgives us to have shin's forgiven pookie with all thy diseases that some of interpreted that to mean that if you have enough faith always heal every disease. I don't think that's the lesson here is talking about spiritual blessings is talking about since being forgiven. So he heals all our diseases. We have spiritual malady.

We have diseases that plague us when were not thinking right when we're not in communion with the Lord.

Fear, anxiety, down have overtaken, but he heal those disease are short-term to him.

He Redeemer thigh life from destruction nature our relationship.

Adam, we were headed for destruction to have the wrath of God upon us how the specific but he is redeemed, redeemed, despite his own sacrifice, not paying the price that we could never have paid redeemed that life from destruction and chronically with lovingkindness and tender old lovingkindness, mercy and grace that he would rescue us that he would redeem a study as well. Us enough to do what we could never have done for sale you not recognize always the just come boldly to the throne of grace, that you may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time. Mercy is something you're not entitled if you could obligate God for it. When we mercy that your undeserving and yet he still owes 10 mercy and satisfy my mouth with good things that you like the Eagle Eagle was referred to more than once in Scripture, it's that powerful burden that ascends far into the sky, has great strength says I feel your mouth with things you feel to be empty feeling the big field be discouraged but I figure mouth with good things and look at the things that are here forgiveness of sin is lovingkindness. His tender mercies is daily benefits that food that you eat the right breath to bring he gives you good things to enjoy and renew your strength. Even when we read in the book of James chapter 1 verse 17 and good and perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning it every good and perfect gift comes down from the father than Shirley we need to be giving him thanks. Not just an appointed time each day, not just at an appointed day on an annual basis, but every day throughout the day. Having a thankful heart. A thankful spirit continually going to him in acknowledgment just say Lord thankful but identify those great blessings and mercies that he has kindly bestowed upon his blessings are great second Peter chapter 1 verse two.

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God and of our Lord and of Jesus our Lord, according as his divine power has given a DOS all things that pertain to life and godliness to the knowledge of him that is called us for us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge that we have of our Lord is revealed in his work. You need guidance you need information need answers the question should go to God's word is given us all that we need pertaining to life and got us how to live a godly life how to bring honor to then his marvelous grace is so beautifully described in Ephesians chapter 2 verse four but God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sin has quickened us together with you would in trespasses and see but he quick thinking and Jesus went to the grave of lectures clasps was even dead for four day even when Jesus said rollback stone.

The sisters protest Masters printed for four days. There's no need to open the door to the two distinctions come out to be offensive, he was dead. But Jesus said last, for and he arose from the dead and we read of them later. Being at mealtime with Jesus. What an experience that will can you imagine the thoughts rolling through letters like a few days ago I was then.

Now I'm sitting here next to Jesus raised from the and enjoying fellowship with him.

He has quickened us together by nature dead in sin. We didn't love God, we had no true interest in the things of God.

We were not inclined to be submissive to him surrendered to him to honor him to acknowledge him as Lord and King of my life, but he is quickened us by grace DRC writers us up together and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Jesus Christ.

Some of the keywords in the past is rich in mercy, love this made us alive. He raises up, he's going to show the exceeding riches of his grace and his kindness. What words are not just poetic words that words that mean something.

This is what he's given us. This is the salvation that we have by his shop and grace. It's not something we attain that we work for that we deserve it. Something that was freely given us by his grace than the apostle says in second Corinthians chapter 9 verse 15 thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift course believe he was speaking of Jesus Christ. We can say a lot of things about Jesus. We read about him being the good Shepherd laid out in life. She read about him being the light of the world.

We see him being the friend of sinners not coming to condone sin, but to save people from theirs. We see him with great compassion as you minister to those that were afflicted of zero. We can talk about them being the bread of life in the water of life. We can talk about them being the dearest of all friends. We thought about it being prophet, priest and king. But when we run out of words, we still have a sentinel possible under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in giving science thanks God for the unspeakable gift, not enough language to adequately express his beauty, his greatness is love, salvation. We have in him and then furthermore we can give thanks for what he is given what he has promised his promise to his hearers: Psalm 50 verse 14 offer unto God. Thanksgiving and paid 5 pounds unto the most high, and call upon me in the day of trouble and I will deliver the house out hello to you sometimes feel you're just at your witching selection described in the song's whenever there with Jan and they cried of the Lord, and he delivered them blossom into their desired haven call upon me in the day of trouble.

Instead of giving up in despair instead of giving way to frustration just quit. Nothing I can do that I can't. I can't make it through all these trying times to call the hymn of the day of trouble and he says I will deliver the vessel, glorify me, because we recognize he has delivered Nazis come to our rescue. He's helped us something else to do but glorify thank him for give him the glory and the credit is promise to be with us now.

Hebrews 13, five, seven, I will never leave leave nor forsake the and that one of the assignment him about no never alone for him.*Heart to remember that truth when I sometimes feel alone, but were never actually I will never leave the nor forsake the so we have this wonderful promise things that his promise to do that is promise to hearers is promise not to leave us nor forsake us any.

Furthermore has promised that someday is going to take a B with think of anything more exciting anything wonderful thing to be in the presence of cheese to be with him. He said in John 14. Three and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself that where I am there. He maybe also the disciples were sad as Jesus indicated he would be going away. Speaking of the staff, but as I'm going to go to prepare a place for you and if I don't dare play free.

I will come again. I want to take it to myself I would take it to be me J in the dark Snipes life in the most difficult times we Counter we have reason to rejoice that we think that someday we go to be with him someday. All the trials of the over the journey will be ended and we will be with him for ever and when we get there. We are still to be given thanks, Revelation chapter 7 verse nine. After this I beheld landlord great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations in Cambridge and and tongue stood before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white rooms and palms in their palms the victory, waving them in triumph, and cried with a loud voice, saying, salvation to bond which sits upon the under the Lamb.

All the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders of the full lease and sale before the throne on their faces and worship verse 12 that tells us what they say and saying all man blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be on to God for ever and ever what to know. Thanksgiving is not because not only is it something to be done, actually by God's people throughout life. You get to heaven, you're still going to be giving thanks and giving thanks for all help which we had to be thankful. Thanks that we know the true and living God who is our creator thankful that we know him who is our Redeemer and to know that his mercy is everlasting.

We give thanks because with the sheep of his pasture and in the midst of this pandemic.

We are not, as the good Shepherd. He knows where we are no circumstances he cares for us.

We give thanks because we have an inheritance that is incorruptible on the file and faded and we give thanks because whipping The power of God and will be sure to get there and enjoy the inheritance for let us make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
