Why is it that so many people take the simple things of life and make them so complicated? Take for instance “The Will of God”, I’ve watched people fret, strive and worry to find the simplest of answers in the most difficult of ways. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 say to “Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
What does this mean? Well, choose always to be joyful by thanking God every day for all the blessings that are in your life. What blessings you say? Well how about that you woke up today, you are still breathing, most of us are still walking, and we still have some sort of family and friends. Choose to see the good in your life instead of seeing the bad; IT IS A CHOICE! If you are still struggling try reading Psalm 136 out loud to yourself and personalize it; for example in verse 1 say “I thank you Lord, for You are good! Your faithful love for me endures forever.
Remember that the words “Thank You” are the most powerful words of faith that can be spoken. How many times did Jesus “Give Thanks” before He performed a miracle? Maybe if we started thanking God in every circumstance perhaps we would experience some miracles in our lives! Just a thought anyways.
