Thanksgiving, Give Thanks in Everything

Psalms_89-1-2: I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations

Just the mention of the word, especially in November when Americans celebrate Thanksgiving Day, invokes certain thoughts in our minds—mostly centered on the season itself and the opportunity it brings for family and friends to get together for food and fun. But Apostle Paul had something different in mind when he wrote in 1Thessalonians 5:18: “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

Psalms_9-1: I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

Psalms_9-1: I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

Notice Paul said we are to give thanks in everything, not for everything. What exactly does that mean? It means that along life’s journey not everything we encounter is going to be easy. At some point, we all will face hardship, trials or tribulation. But rather than fear those things, Jesus said we should be encouraged because “I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

While we are not glad to see hard times come, and we certainly are not happy to have to walk through them, we are to continue giving thanks to the God who is more than able to see us through anything. Nothing can happen to you that God doesn’t already know about, and nothing will ever happen that He cannot see you through and give you victory over.

Learn to be thankful in everything. That’s God’s will in Jesus Christ concerning you
 
May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!
