5 OT Verses I am Thankful For

1. Genesis 1:1
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

2. 1 Samuel 16:7
But the Lord said to Samuel, 'Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees; man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart."

3. Psalm 23:1
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

4. Psalm 107:1
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.

5. Isaiah 1:18
Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.

These may not be the best, or the most significant verses in the OT, but I am sure glad they are in there! What about you? What Old Testament verses are you especially thankful for today?

4. Isa 42:8
I am Jehovah, that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise unto graven images.

5. Isa 55:6-9
Seek ye Jehovah while he may be found; call ye upon him while he is near: let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return unto Jehovah, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith Jehovah. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
