A CALL TO MEDITATE: CULTIVATE A HABIT OF THANKGIVING!
"... giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ...".
It is a good thing to give thanks to the Lord (Psalm 92:1).
Today's anchor verse admonishes us to always thank God for all things.
1 Thess. 5:18 also says:
" In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you...".
Juxtaposing these two verses, the following emerges:
The believer _"should give thanks to God always, for everything and in everything...". Praise God!!!
This is in stark contrast to the common belief that thanksgiving should be offered to God only in the good times or when He poured out a blessing!
Are you in search of God's will and purpose for your life?
Well, "giving thanks to God in everything" is one of the few things that has been clearly stated in the Bible to be the will of God for every believer (1 Thess. 5:18).
So dear one,
Learn to cultivate a culture of thanksgiving.
Thank God at all times; for all you receive materially and for all the circumstances you experience; whether they be 'good' or 'bad'!
Let thanksgiving precede the requests you make to God;
Let it come before the myriad of complaints you might have for Him;
Let thanksgiving take central place in your everyday living!!!
Never forget that even as you thank God always for everything and in everything, you are walking in His will for your life!
Have a WOOOWWW WEEK!!!
