1 Thessalonians 5:18
Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
Do you desire to walk in God’s will for your life? The will of God is the best place to be for God’s plans for us as Jeremiah 29:11 declares are good and not evil. They are plans to bring us a future filled with hope. One of the keys to walking in God’s plans for you is to never lose your gratitude for God and how good He is. In the Psalms over and over it tells us to give thanks to the Lord for He is good. No matter what circumstances may come your way if you want to walk through life a victor and not a victim give thanks everyday for how good our God is. This attitude of gratitude can mean the difference between a life of victory or defeat. When we thank God we place our focus on Him and not on what we see around us. When you begin to talk about how big your God is by giving Him thanks, your problems become quite small in comparison. Thanksgiving releases faith in God for thanksgiving is the force of faith. A leper who had been cleansed of his leprosy by Jesus came back to Him and began to thank Him. As He did Jesus declared his faith had now made him whole, which means he now also had his body restored from the damaged the leprosy had done. So in aIl circumstances you face, good or bad, keep giving thanks for how good God is and you will walk in His will, which is good.
