In Everything Give Thanks

January 1

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

“IN EVERYTHING …give thanks…”

It’s easy to bring thanksgiving to God for the good things he has placed in our lives. But notice how the verse reads: “IN EVERYTHING…”

Can I thank God in EVERY situation?

Yes, because the painful things that come into our lives are used to bring about God’s plan for us. Through them he changes our hearts. If we will surrender to the painful things and bring to God thanksgiving even for the hard things in life, he will work out those things for the good.

“And we know that ALL things work together for good
to those who love God,
to those who are the called according to his purpose.”
Romans 8:28

Book suggestion:
Prison To Praise And Power In Praise -by Merlin Carothers

It’s a book that changed my life.

It’s two books in one. You can get them as combined here, or you can get them separately.
