If you are accustomed to the things of the Lord, then I am sure the instruction to give thanks to God in all things should not be as hard as it would sound reading this out loud.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n1 Thessalonians 5:18 'give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.'\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nBut in reality, the question remains, 'How easy is it as a Christian to give thanks to God in the midst of trouble, challenges, distress, worries, and allow me to paint the picture right, when you are in deep shit?'\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\ngive thanks to God\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMost times, men also take the glory of God when they refuse to acknowledge the source of the achievements they chalk.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nDoing either of the two above is totally unacceptable for being in Christ Jesus is about doing as Christ would.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nEphesians 5:8-10 'for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSalvation is a transformational step, leaving behind the things of old and taking up the cross and following Jesus. Acknowledging the place of God is vital to that transformational journey.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMake it a conscious effort to offer Him thanks in all things and under all circumstances.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nGive thanks to God in Everything...God bless you.
