IN everything… FOR everything

Be thankful is a clear mandate in God’s Word! Besides who is to be thankful I’ve been pulling verses to help me know: when and what for and how and where to be thankful…

Who gives thanks?

Paul’s Prayer (in Colossians 1:9-12) asks God: fill the believers with spiritual wisdom, understanding, good fruit…joyfully giving thanks to God as qualified-saints.

When and What for?

Always giving thanks to God the Father for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, (Ephesians 5:20)

In everything give thanks. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 (Thessalonians 5:18)

How?

(Besides joyfully)… There should be no vulgar speech, foolish talk, or coarse jesting – all of which are out of character – but rather thanksgiving. (Ephesians 5:4)

Where?

(Everywhere)… And whatever you do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:17)

Why?

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! (1 Corinthians 15:57)

As Your saint, LORD, help me always to be joyfully-thankful in and for everything, by thought, word and action, because of the Victory You have given me in Jesus!🙌🏽
