Give Thanks
April 04, 2023
"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."1 Thessalonians 5:18
Giving God thanks in the midst of our trials is the last thing on our minds most of the time. When the sun is shining in our lives and everything is going our way, there is no problem giving God thanks because we can see the blessings. We should be ever mindful that no matter what we are going through we can always be thankful because The Lord always gives us something to be thankful for. The Scripture reminds us, in everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. I encourage you today that no matter what it is you are going through, give thanks to God. Thank God when things are going your way, and thank Him when they are not. Give Him thanks when you understand what is going on and where He is leading you, and give Him even more thanks when you do not know or understand where you are in life right now. When you are down, give God thanks, when you are up, give God thanks. In everything and in every situation and circumstance you find yourself in, give God thanks. Thanking God in all things becomes easier when you are remember how good He has been to you. Since I will give thanks to God in all things, I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord I thank you for everything. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
