November 9

“Sacrifice thank offerings to God, fulfill your vows to the Most High, and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me” Psalm 50:14-15 (NIV)

In Old Testament days God’s people could show their gratitude to Him by bringing thank offerings. These offerings were not burned on the altar but eaten by the offeror and his family. This meal was to honor God for His goodness, and they experienced His closeness. This is what the palmist had in mind as he wrote this promise into the psalm we are looking at today. We honor God when we thank Him for delivering us from trouble.  The promise is clear. When we call upon the Lord to bring us through a dark hour He will be there to help. He will bring us through. So He does deserve to be honored, doesn’t He? Always honor Him by thanking Him.
