Inspired by Psalm 103, worship leader and songwriter Matt Redman cowrote the song, “10,000 Reasons” with a Swedish friend, Jonas Myrin.
In Psalm 103, David lists several reasons why his heart is full of worship for God. So, Redman and Myrin made a list of their own reasons and noted they were barely scratching the surface of God’s worth. Redman explained to Worship Leader Magazine …
If you wake up one morning and you cannot think of a reason to bring God some kind of offering of thanks or praise, then you can be sure there’s something wrong at your end of the pipeline, and not his. We live beneath an unceasing flow of goodness, kindness, greatness, and holiness, and every day we’re given reason after reason why Jesus is so completely and utterly worthy of our highest and best devotion.
In this month in which we observe the national holiday of Thanksgiving, may you set aside time each day to say “thank you” for God’s blessings in your life. You may even want to compile your own list of reasons to bless the Lord. May your heart be lifted to God anew in worship and thanksgiving for his many blessings!
