The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.  Proverbs 29:25 ESV

1 Chronicles 16 

It is always good to give thanks unto the Lord!  The Abrahamic Covenant is a promise that continues today.  Thanking God is good but so is declaring how wonderful our God is.  Walking with Him reveals His goodness.  David was one who took pleasure in blessing others.  Doing so always reaps abundance to the person doing the blessing!  It is a common phrase to say that we cannot out give God but it is a true saying.
Ezekiel 28 
Thinking more highly of oneself always leads to a fall.  Many a nation can rise up against Israel, yet she will dwell in security and the harm others want on her will come upon them.
Psalm 122:6: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!  “May they be secure who love you!”
Galatians 1
Pleasing God means He is first and foremost in everything.  There is one gospel and without the Lord Yeshua and His works on our behalf, there would not be any.  Wow!  I do desire that like Paul, people would glorify God because of my life in Him.
Meditate & Apply: It is an interesting experience to give thanks to the Lord for His Presence overtakes me!  I am grateful that the Abrahamic Covenant still exists.  Pride truly does come before a major fall so I must recognize this continuously and never think more highly of myself than I ought.  What one sows is what they will eventually reap.  Again Lord, You have taken care of everything so it is not difficult to please You!
