For many people, Thanksgiving is a holiday, a single day set aside to give thanks and enjoy a big meal with friends and family. For the Christian, Thanksgiving is a way of life, an outward expression of our internal hope, belief, and faith. It is a daily act of giving praise and thanks to God our Father for all that He has given us.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 “Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Jesus Christ.”
Philippians 4:6 “ Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with Thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.”
It is God's will that we give thanks!
We can give thanks in all circumstances because Thanksgiving is a response to the goodness and grace of God. God’s nature and love for us does not change based on our outward circumstances.
Thankful prayer will replace anxiety with an unbelievable peace.
This Thanksgiving, let’s give thanks and create a Thanksgiving plan for the next 365 days.
