Give Thanks to Start the Day Before Us
In all that we do, have and who we are, our first call is to give thanks to the Lord for it all.
Without the Lord:
- We would not be here on this earth in the first place
- We would not the who we are today’
- Everything we can touch, see hear, taste and smell would cease to exist.
You see, the Lord is the divine creator of all things, including us. This truth in itself, gives cause for continual thanks. We teach our children to give thanks for all the things they receive in life, right? Well…. we too, are children of the most high God. Therefore, so should we give thanks for everything, every day. When we give thanks, in return we receive blessings from the Lord. These blessing give us reason to be joyful and joy brings peace to our spirit.
We must also remember that giving thanks is not something we give in good times only. You see, the Lord deserves our thanks no matter what our given circumstance or situation is. This is easier said than done, but we focus on giving continual thanks we are living God’s will for us. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 sums up the truth of today’s devotional prayer very clearly. And I encourage all of us to remind ourselves of this passage daily.
