“in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
I Thessalonians 5:18 (NKJV).
Now that Thanksgiving day is gone. I pray that you will make it a habit to give thanks daily.
Are you giving thanks in every circumstance? This might seem like a stretch at first, especially when you are going through a season of difficulty. But notice today’s verse doesn’t say to give thanks “for” everything, it says give thanks “in” everything. In other words, no matter what’s going on, find something to be thankful for. Don’t just focus on what’s wrong in your life; focus on what God will do in your life.
When you are thankful, it opens the door for God to move on your behalf. That’s why it says “this is God’s will for you.” He wants you to be close to Him to receive His strength and power by giving thanks. That’s why we should always have the attitude that says, “God, in spite of what’s happened, I choose to be grateful. I may be sick, but Father, thank You for being my healer. Thank you for giving me great friends and family.”
- May your time with family and friends be graced with His Love, Joy, Peace, Unity and More…
O GIVE THANKS unto the LORD; for he is GOOD…
2 Corinthians 2:14
Now THANKS be unto God, Who always causes us to triumph in Christ…
Giving THANKS always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ…
1 Thessalonians 5:18
In every thing give THANKS: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
