*The following is a shared excerpt from a bible study on giving thanks to The Lord*
“Being thankful is a commandment in scripture. And for the Christian, who has trusted the Lord Jesus as their Saviour, thanksgiving is a way of life. It flows from our very hearts. No matter what one may be going through at the moment, there is always something to be thankful for.”
*Colossians 4:2- Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;
*Psalm 26:7- That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
*Philippians 4:6- Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
*Colossians 2:6-7- 6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
HOW AWESOME IS HE! FOR NO MATTER OUR CIRCUMSTANCES-MAYBE EVEN IN A “JOB” SITUATION-WE ARE STILL ALLOWED A GRATEFUL HEART! GRATEFUL FOR THE ONE WHO BORE OUR SINS ON A TREE SO THAT WE MAY BE FORGIVEN! SP EVEN IN OUR BROKENESS WE ARE WHOLE!
HAVE A BLESSED THANKFUL DAY EVEN IN THE MIDST OF YOUR PIT! WITH GOD AND FOR HIS HONOR AND GLORY WE KNOW THIS IS POSSIBLE!
