GIVE THANKS TO GOD

TEXT: 1 THESSALONIANS 5:14-22

MEMORY VERSE: “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 THESSALONIANS 5:18).

Gratitude is an attitude of the heart that makes us appreciate God or man for blessings or favours received from them. Appreciating God and giving Him credit in good times, thanking and glorifying Him for His wonderful gifts and graciousness is easy and understandable. But many struggle to find the reason to thank Him during suffering, tragedies and losses.

Yet, our text admonishes that in everything, we should give thanks to God. The Scriptures further instruct that we give thanks to God always and for all things (Ephesians 5:20). All things are not equally good, but all things are thankworthy.

Whatever happens to us as allowed by God, has a purpose or reason behind it, and is part of God’s overall plan. Provided we are in the will of God, whatever He allows our way is for our ultimate good. We should therefore give thanks to God because of His creation, the gift of life, His deliverances, protection and provisions. We thank Him because He commands it and expects it. Thanking God in all our circumstances attracts more blessings.

QUOTE: All things are thankworthy.

CHALLENGE: Give thanks to God always.

PRAYER: In all things, help me to thank You, Lord.
