Ps 91 (NKJV)
3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the perilous pestilence.4 He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day,6 nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A Day of Thanksgiving to a Faithful God
Did you know God is faithful?
1 Corinthians 1:9 "God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord."
1 Corinthians 10:13 "No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it."
2 Corinthians 1:18 "But as God is faithful, our word to you was not Yes and No."
1 Thessalonians 5:24 "He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it."
2 Thessalonians 3:3 "But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one."
2 Timothy 2:13 "If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself."
Hebrews 10:23 "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful."
1 John 1:9 "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful."
On this national day of Thanksgiving, don't forget to be thankful to and for the One who is faithful. His faithfulness is not based on our faithfulness, but on his goodness.
Oh, God, thank you today for being faithful, even when we're not. Today as we celebrate a day of thanksgiving help us to be ever mindful of your faithfulness. Keep our hearts and minds focused on you and not on what we can "get" from the coming season. In all the busy-ness, help us to be in tune with your heart to the homeless, orphans and widows. Open our eyes to help those in need this season. Thank you God for your Son and his faithfulness to follow your will to death. I love you Lord. Amen
God bless you all.
