“Pray frequently, give thanks in all circumstances; for that is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18
Life is stuffed with challenges and a few of you’re within the midst of 1 proper now. Perhaps just like the Israelites in Psalm 107 you’ve gone from one troublesome interval to a different. They have been hungry and thirsty wanderers within the desert, prisoners in chains, sailors reeling in terror on the livid storm…every time they cried out to the Lord and He saved them. Remembering this, they’re inspired to “give because of the LORD for his unfailing love and his great deeds for males.”
We’re inspired to provide thanks in every part, not for every part. Some issues are plain evil and It wouldn’t be practical to provide thanks for them. However we may give thanks “in” them. How?
Thanks, Jesus, that you realize all about this.
Thanks, that you’re with me on this.
Thanks that you’re holding my hand as we stroll by means of it collectively.
Thanks that you’re performing in love even now “to your love endures ceaselessly”
I’ve discovered that as I look again on that troublesome time, I marvel how God has lovingly introduced me by means of it. And he’ll do the identical for you.
Father, I can thanks in every part to your plans for me are plans to prosper me and to not hurt me, plans to provide me hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11)
