1 Chronicles 16:23-36
The Lord Gives Us the Words We Need
by Jennifer Jerrome
God wants us to put our faith into action. Today’s passage offers a list of action words for expressing that faith.
· Give Thanks
· Cry Out
One that stands out is ascribe, which is repeated three times in verses 28-29. Ascribe means to attribute or assign. In other words, to give God credit for all the glorious things He has done.
Often, I find myself focusing more on what God can do for me and missing opportunities to thank Him for everything he has done. He established heaven and earth, pretty big accomplishments. He alone deserves praise.
