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 teach me: when and what for and how and where to be thankful…

  • Who gives thanks?

Paul’s Prayer (in Colossians 1:9-12) asks God: to fill all 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 do I give thanks?

“…and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you f to share in the inheritance of His holy people in the kingdom of light. (Colossians 1:12)

  • Where should I give thanks?

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 should I give thanks?

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! 🙌🏽
