Following birthdays, graduations and weddings, individuals often feel compelled to send thank you cards. While certain presents are more impressive than others, it’s the thought that counts. Although this process may be time consuming, it’s the appropriate response.
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you, 1 Thessalonians 5:18.
Unfortunately, most people don’t do the same with the Lord. After a remarkable day, month or phase in life, it’s time to give the Lord the credit for victories in life. Sure, you might have put in the effort and time to succeed. Yet, it never hurts to thank God for the journey of life.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change, James 1:17.
In the New Testament, the apostle Paul took missionary journeys to spread the good news about Jesus Christ. Some trips were extended while others were cut short. Other plans were thwarted due to demonic forces. Like making a wedding vow, in the good or bad, make sure you take a moment daily to pause by thanking God for the journey.
