We are to be thankful every day for the blessing and the favor of God being upon our lives. Every November, you hear about being thankful and grateful for all the blessings in your life. Sometimes you hear the word “thankful” so often that it ceases to have meaning to you.
I urge you this Thanksgiving to view the subject of “thankfulness” with a new energy and focus.
1 Timothy 2:1 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—
What does the word “thankful” actually mean? Feeling or expressing gratitude. Glad about something: glad or relieved about something.
Psalm 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.
God sees our situation much better than we do and we can trust that he always has our best interest in mind. We only see a tiny piece of the big puzzle and God has the entire puzzle in his vision.
Knowing that Jesus loves us and chose to willingly die for us is a very big reason to be thankful this year. Knowing that God is in control and that he has a purpose for our lives is another reason to be thankful. God blesses us in so many ways and sometimes we fail to see or recognize His handiwork in our lives.
Take time today and think about all the wonderful things in your life such as family and friends,
Shout to the Lord!!
Psalm 100:1-5 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgivingand his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
