GIVE THANKS!!

Giving Thanks in All Things!


1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


Today's godly habit is THANKSGIVING! Giving thanks every day and in everything!


Sometimes we can go through so much in life that it causes us not to be thankful for what we have, what we have learned, and what we have experienced. No matter what has come your way, there is always something to thank God for, always. We should even thank God for what we call "tragedies" in our life. You can turn a "tragedy" into a triumph of thanksgiving. What you are going through and experiencing right now has a greater purpose than just only for you, and it will minister to others. It is for the glory of God.

When you seek the glory during your time of "tragedy" then you are able to gain greater perspective as to how this situation ties into your destiny.

When you have thankful and faith-filled words, you don't have to beg God for anything; you just remind Him of what He has already told you.

The act of thanksgiving will manifest what you are standing in faith for. For example, "Thank You, Lord, that You said I would be the head and not the tail. I will be first and not last, above only and never beneath. Thank You and bless Your Name that my faith stands firm on Your word that the righteous are not forsaken nor does Your seed beg for bread. Thank you, Lord that every promise that I am standing in faith for is in accordance with your word. I now confess and receive them in Jesus' name."


THE THANK YOU LIST!

*Today's Thanksgiving Exercise: Get a pen and paper and write out everything that is going right in your life. This is a Thank You Lord list for everything you have, and for what God has already done.
