I Thessalonians 5:18 says “In everything give thanks; for this is the Will of God in Christ Jesus, concerning you.”
“Every good and perfect gift comes from the Lord” (James 1:17). This we know and as easy as it is we yet sometimes fail to praise or Thank God as we should. Are you an ingrate? An ingrate is someone who is NEVER thankful, whether good or bad, no matter who the giver is.
An ingrate is a complainer who grumbles, whines and cries about everything all the time. They only think about themselves.
Hard times come to all of us. But even in the midst of troubles, we should praise God and confuse the devil. Let’s not be like the children of Israel and vex God. Our attitude while going through is the determining factor that will either cause us to trip up or triumph!!
Hard times will make you strong…if you can endure them. But the only way to “endure” them properly is to have a GRATEFUL ATTITUDE!! Come to know the Lord and Trust Him. He said that He will be with us “in the sixth trouble and in the seventh trouble He will no wise forsake us”!!! You may be going through….But I challenge all of you to praise God!
Why? Because whatever you are going through, none of us has gone through like Jesus has….
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever beliveth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting Life!!” (John 3:16). Now that is a reason to praise God…everytime we think about it!! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!
COME JOIN THE OGC FAMILY this Thanksgiving season. Every day is a day of Thanksgiving with us!! We love to praise and worship God in spirit and in truth!!
