“Give thanks to God in everything, because this is his will for you in Christ Jesus.”
(1 Thessalonians 5:18)
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it in the name of the Lord Jesus, thanking God the Father through him.”
Jonah after being taken from the belly of the whale, Moses when he saw the liberation of the people of Israel, Ana when she became pregnant even though she was sterile, all gave thanks to GOD recognizing their power, their salvation, their sovereignty and their great love . They were on the edge of anguish, near death, but when they saw his saving hand, they gave thanks.
Even in the midst of scarcity or abundance, of tribulation, if everything is against us, right there, a grateful heart opens the doors of heaven, receives the help of the LORD. There is no better manifest trust than the one who, in difficulty, gives thanks to GOD through JESUS CHRIST, because he knows that GOD is powerful to raise even from the dead.
For this, we must be grateful at all times, in everything we do, because in doing so, we recognize GOD present in our life in all circumstances, walking with us, because we are his people and He our GOD who dwells in us and He is in our midst. At this time, let’s think about everything we have to thank and start the day, offering GOD, through JESUS, thanksgiving, the fruit of lips that confess his name.
Beloved LORD, thank you for giving us the precious gift of salvation, for giving us life in abundance, for each day you give us and each person you place for our formation and thus to be able to love with the love you loved us, when you died on the cross for our sins. May our hearts be full of grace and gratitude for all your blessings. In the name of JESÚS. Amen and Amen.
