The Doctor And The Preacher
To Impress Spiritual Truth
Let praise and thanksgiving be expressed in song. When tempted, instead of giving utterance to our feelings, let us by faith lift up a song of thanksgiving to God.
Song is a weapon that we can always use against discouragement. As we thus open the heart to the sunlight of the Saviour’s presence, we shall have health and his blessing.
“Give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good:
For his mercy endureth forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
Whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy.”
“Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him:
Talk ye of all his wondrous works. Glory ye in his holy name:
Let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.”
“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18. This command is an assurance that even the things which appear to be against us will work for our good. God would not bid us be thankful for that which would do us harm.
