Giving Thanks

Scripture Reading: Ephesians 5:21-33

1 Thessalonians 5:18 commands us to be thankful in everything; it doesn't say be thankful for everything. There is a distinct difference. When things go wrong, we are to give thanks to God in the midst of the trouble.

Although all your worldly efforts and pursuits may fail and you're in the worse season of life, you must still praise God for all He has done. You may not be able to praise God for your circumstances, but you can praise God that He is with you in those circumstances.

Job praised God even at the lowest point of his life. King Jehoshaphat was terrified of the approaching enemy. Yet he commanded the people to praise God. God saved Israel. When you give thanks, you are in God's will. He puts everything together in His time and His will. Let's give Him thanks everyday for the way He works in our lives.
