1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Many times, we are consumed with emotions of what we need or want and neglecting the blessings we have. Even if we get what we are trusting God for at present, we will still crave for more because human needs are insatiable. We need to look deep inward; reflect on the blessings we have received and be thankful for them instead of focusing on our worries.
Take a break, sit down, and reflect on your challenges. Is yours the worst? Are you better or more righteous than those that have worse challenges than yours? I guess no is your answer. If you can think deep, you will realize that your blessings are more than your burdens. Even in your tribulations, there are enormous blessings embedded in it that only a change in your perspective will allow you to see them. Then, you will realize that you are to be thankful all these whiles. Philippians 4:4 says, “Rejoice in the Lord always: and again, I say, Rejoice.” You need to rejoice in the Lord and be grateful always because that which he promised you he will still do it for you without delay. A promise you can always rely on.
According to Philippians 4:6 – “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Shalom.
