One thing I have really had to practice this week is giving thanks in everything. 1 Thess. 5:18 says that is the will of God for our lives.
If we are ever asking what God is doing and what His will is for our season, we can be assured it can be found in our thanksgiving.
Giving thanks in everything- the good and the bad- will always shift my prospective to the right way of thinking.
I may be having a hard time or a bad day and I will verbally give thanks. I begin to thank Him for previous blessings and know that if He did it then He will do it now. If He was faithful then, He will be faithful now.
Why? Because He does not change. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Our economy may change, our world may change, but Jesus remains the same.
Last week we talked about when anxiety tries to come upon us to shift our minds back to the Lord and He will keep us in perfect peace. (Isaiah 26:3)
What is one way to do that? BY GIVING THANKS.
In everything, we give thanks.
We will bless the Lord at ALL TIMES and His praise will continually be in our mouths. (Psalm 34:1)
When you begin to remember and rejoice on the blessings of the Lord, you cant help but come into proper perspective again.
(Psalm 77:11) I will remember the works of the Lord; Surely I will remember Your wonders of old.
We must be devoted to prayer like never before and be watchful to see how God is moving in this season, giving thanks for the many blessings He continues to bestow upon us.
(Col 4:2) Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving.
