Sermon Summary: During the month of November, we have focused on the theme of thanksgiving. Our monthly “Equipping Verse” is Psalm 69:30, “I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving.” Thankfulness to God is to be like breathing for the followers of Jesus. Even when the floodwaters of life are up to our neck and even when life is like sinking in quicksand (see verse 1), we can give thanks to God. There are three reasons we should thank God…

  1. God will not abandon us when others do. 
  2. God can be trusted in the worst of times.
  3. God’s presence and power causes us to praise and thank him.
