None Shall Appear Empty Handed

In Exodus 34:20 God gives some guidelines about what He expects as we come before Him.  “none shall appear before Me empty-handed.”  There was a custom in the ancient cultures that whenever a common person approached the courts of the noble rulers they were to come with a gift.  When you come before your God and Lord what do you bring to Him?
In Psalm 100:4 the Psalmist says that we are to, “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise.  Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.”  The Apostle Paul tells us in Philippines 4:6 that we when we come before God with our prayer, supplications, and requests before God, we are to come with thanksgiving.
As you constantly come before your king, may your life, your prayers, your requests, your entrance into God’s presence always be filled with thanksgiving and praise.  May you bring the gift of thankfulness and submission before your God and King.
