In Everything Give Thanks
It’s Wednesday, Loved Ones! This is a wonderful day to reflect and meditate on how good GOD is and to give Him thanks.
Psalm 107:1 AMP – O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His compassion and lovingkindness endure forever!
When you wake up in the morning, is the first thing on your mind and in your heart to give GOD thanks for another day? Before you go to sleep, do you thank Him for His showers of blessings over your life?
The life of one who has received JESUS CHRIST as SAVIOR and LORD is not exempt from experiencing the trials and tribulations of everyday living. Giving yourself to the standard and aspiration of godly living does elevate you to a place where your focus is on pleasing GOD and believing His promises to manifest in your life.
As you draw near to GOD continually, surrendering your finite understanding and acknowledging His infinite wisdom, He will guide and direct the path of your daily journey by the inextinguishable light of His love. Just imagine how lost you would be constantly bumping into dead-ends and being consumed by one bad decision after another. Indeed, the darkness is a death trap. Thank GOD continually for rescuing you from yourself.
Meditate on GOD’s awesome and amazing love toward those who love and trust Him and seek to obey His will.
Psalm 103:1-5 AMP – Bless and affectionately praise the Lord, O my soul, and all that is [deep] within me, bless His holy name.
Bless and affectionately praise the Lord, O my soul,
And do not forget any of His benefits;
Who forgives all your sins,
Who heals all your diseases;
Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you [lavishly] with lovingkindness and tender mercy;
Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the [soaring] eagle.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 AMP – in every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.
Prayer: Almighty and Everlasting GOD, the Giver of life, we submit to Your Sovereign reign. Thank You for offering what is best for us. Help us to receive the best You have for us with much thanksgiving. In JESUS’ name. Amen.
