Thank God for the Many Instances of His Goodness and Kind Providence (continued)

Thanksgiving 4.3 | NIV

The highest heavens belong to you, but the earth you have given to man; Psalm 115:16(NIV) and you have put everything under his feet and made him ruler over the works of your hands; Psalm 8:6(NIV) so that the fear and dread of man is upon all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air, and they are given into his hands; Genesis 9:2(NIV) because you had a favor to him, and you delight in mankind. Proverbs 8:31(NIV)

You make grass grow for the cattle, and plants for man to cultivate – bringing forth food from the earth: wine that gladdens the heart of man, oil to make his face shine, and bread that sustains his heart. Psalm 104:14-15(NIV)

You give all men life and breath and everything else; Acts 17:25(NIV) and the earth if filled with your love, O LORD. Psalm 119:64(NIV)

All creatures look to you to give them their food at the proper time: When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things. Psalm 104:27-28(NIV) When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the earth. This, your glory, shall endure forever, and you rejoice in these works. Psalm 104:30-31(NIV)

It is through your goodness, O Lord, that generations come and generations go, Ecclesiastes 1:4(NIV) and that you have not blotted out the name of that corrupt and guilty race from under heaven. Deuteronomy 29:20(NIV)
