Yes! THANK You God! 42 Powerful Reasons To Give Thanks To God

Christians should be the most thankful, joyful, grateful people on earth. The phrase, “Thank you God,” should constantly flow forth from our mouth.

But if you’re like me, there are many times when you forget to give thanks to God. When you grumble and complain and moan about the things that you don’t have.

And the truth is, when life gets hard it can be harder to give thanks to God and much easier to forget all his blessings.

This is why we need to CONSTANTLY be reminded of all the reasons we have to say, “Thank you God.”

Psalm 103:2 says, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits…” We are prone to forget God’s benefits and need to constantly call them to mind.

So with that in mind, here are 42 reasons to constantly say, “Thank you God.”

At the end of this post, there are also prayers to help you express your gratitude to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit for all their blessings.
