“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.” Psalm 100:4
A thankful heart is very pleasing to God. I Thessalonians 5:18 says, “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
In EVERYTHING give thanks! That is not an easy command to live up to in this world of daily disappointment and uncertainty. Yet, look at it from God’s viewpoint. It is His will that you trust Him in ALL THINGS and ALL CIRCUMSTANCES.
Romans 8:28 makes this declaration, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
As your LOVE for God grows, so does your interest in HIS WILL and HIS PURPOSE. Your trust in Him will increase in the same proportion as your willingness to rest in His divine plan for your life. . . even above your own will and desires.
Be thankful to God today, knowing that HE is working in the midst of all your circumstances so that they will work out for your GOOD!
PRAY: “Loving Father, I thank You for caring enough to involve yourself in my every situation Help me to rest in the assurance that You are working everything for my good. In Jesus’ glorious Name, I pray. Amen.”
