Dear Daughter of Almighty God
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (ESV)
18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
We are to give thanks in all circumstances, not easy. Giving thanks releases power from within it release God into the situation. Yes I am saying the same as yesterday because each day throws up its own troubles. We need to keep rejoicing and giving thanks no matter what.
God sees what is going on and He is working all things to our good but we need to keep rejoicing. When I am rejoicing it is a lot harder to take it out on others that I am having a bad day. When I am rejoicing it is much easy to keep hold of the joy of the Lord, when I am rejoicing it is much easier to hear from God.
Remember we are not thanking God for what is happening, we are thanking God in a bad situation knowing that He will turn it around. It is the will of God for us to give thanks and rejoice in Him because we know He is a good God, a loving God, a God that cares for each and every one of us, a God that has all the answers, a God who provides and a God of so very much more.
