THE WORD FOR 22/11
In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. —1 Thessalonians 5:18
The Bible commands us to be thankful. In fact, thankfulness is the natural outflowing of a heart that is grateful to God. The psalmist declared, “Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving” (Psalm 147:7) A spirit of thanksgiving is always the mark of a joyous Christian.
Why should we be thankful? Because God has blessed us, God has redeemed us, God has not abandoned us, God has helped us, God has cared for us, God has poured His grace upon us and we should be thankful for each blessing.
Lord, for days that are sunny or gray we simply want to say, Thank You! In Jesus’ Name, Amen
