As you read this, I want you to do this one thing. I promise that once you do what I am about to tell you by faith in Jesus, it will energize and revolutionize your perspective on THANKSGIVING. Here it is …
GIVE GOD PRAISE: GIVE HIM THANKS FOR THREE THINGS.
Things that you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that GOD is the only one who helped you out of a difficult time, blessed you, rescued you, etc.
I’m challenging you to give it some serious thought. To go beyond the knee jerk responses of He woke me up, He gave me life. Don’t get me wrong; I am not minimizing these things at all. I just know from my own experience that these were my responses when I didn’t want to really put much effort into my thinking. If this isn’t you, by all means go there!
IT’S IN YOUR PRAISE
My prayer for you and me is that the Lord Jesus Christ will help us to give Thanks To God In Adversity. Whatever the circumstances, we are to give thanks unto the Lord our God for He alone is good. My point today is that being thankful is a condition of the heart not our circumstances. It’s in your praise. Notice that I said give thanks while IN adversity, NOT FOR adversity. You see as a child of God you can praise God while facing difficulties because you know that you are not alone. God is with you, praise Him for His faithfulness right now! It’s In Your Praise.
