1 Thessalonians 5:18 In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
The call to the people of God is to be thankful “IN” all things. I am not saying everything that happens to us is good because sometimes bad and evil things happens to us, but,even in them we should be thankful.
I have learned that life could always be worse even when we think it could not get any worse.
Praising God in the midst of trials and being thankful to Him for keeping us in our right mind in the midst of them will help redirect our minds to a state of gratitude and not complaining and ungratefulness which is easy for many today especially if they are going through.
This text before us reminds us that we are to be "thankful IN everything and IN all circumstances".
When we find ourselves overwhelmed with burdens and worried about tomorrow, we can praise God for who He is and His promise to never leave us or forsake us.
I may not have all the things I want but God is able and still providing the necessary daily needs and I am grateful to Him for that.
I am grateful for who I am and who I am becoming through Christ Jesus as He daily cleanse and purify my soul.
I believe if we praise God more and be more thankful for what we do have, we can quiet the enemy of ungratefulness and discontentment that attaches itself to our minds often.
Today is thankful Sunday! Give thanks IN all things for this is the Lord’s will for us in Christ Jesus.
IN all things give the Lord Thanks!
