January 13: Tokens of Thanks

January 13 _ rockA“There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.”  (I Samuel 2:2)

Hannah’s song of thanksgiving was an awesome testimony of her thankfulness for the gift she had been given. She was barren, prayed for God to bless her with a child, and when He did, she could not contain her praise to Him. She was overcome with joy, and her heart was full of tribute to the Holy One … the Lord, God Almighty.

We ought not cease to give praise to our Maker for all He has done for us. Praise is our tribute and we are unjust if we do not pay it. Praise should be continually on our lips for the gift of salvation so full and free.

Hannah’s act of thanksgiving was to give that child she so longed for, the thing she valued most, the manifestation of her strongest desire, back to God for His purposes.

How have you shown your praise for all He has done for you? What have you given as a token of your thanksgiving?  Think about it … what is thing in life do you hold most dear? Could you … would you offer it back to God with a heart full of praise for all God has done for you?

There is none holy as the Lord. He is worthy of ALL our praise!

Lord, as Hannah gave back to You the very thing she loved most, I give to you my life as a tribute to the new life which You have given me. Take my life and let it be consecrated, Lord, to thee, amen!

“But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.”  (Psalm 22:3)
