๐Ÿ‘‘ In Every Thing Giveย Thanks ๐Ÿ‚

โ€œIn every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning youโ€ย (1 Thessalonians 5:18).

God wantsย โ€œall men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truthโ€ย (1 Timothy 2:3,4). To beย โ€œsavedโ€ย here means you have been rescued from the penalty of sin (hell and the lake of fire), and that you have a home in heaven, because you have trusted the death, shed blood, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ as sufficient payment for your sins. Toย โ€œcome unto the knowledge of the truthโ€ย is when a person who has trusted Christ, begins to understandย whyย God saved him or her, andย howย God will use him or her for His glory. Although soul salvation is instantaneous, spiritual maturity is a life-long process (that is especially true regarding handling difficulties, the grace way!).

It is human nature to avoid difficulties and stress, to flee them, rather than confront them. This self-preservation is advantageous, particularly in โ€œlife or deathโ€ situations. However, running from troubling circumstances isย notย the way God has designed our life in Christ to function. Todayโ€™s Scripture says,ย โ€œInย every thing give thanks,โ€ย notย โ€œForย every thing give thanks.โ€ย We doย notย thank God for our troubles; we thank God while we are enduring those troubles. This is tough, I know, but it takes time for us to learn it. Even the Apostle Paul had to learn this.

โ€œNot that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.ย I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.ย I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth meโ€ย (Philippians 4:11-13).

Be thankfulย inย every thing. Godโ€™s grace is sufficient for you, dear saint, inย allย of lifeโ€™s circumstances. When you learn this, you areย โ€œ[coming] unto the knowledge of the truth.โ€ source

Bible Verse for 4/20/19

But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. — 1 Corinthians 15:20-22
