In Everything Give Thanks
It is hard sometimes to be thankful for everything. God’s Word tells us to be thankful in all things. When we are going through difficult times it is hard to be thankful. But we need to understand that sometimes we need the difficult times to make us into the kind of person God wants us to be.
I remember sharing this with my church when I was in Baraboo and then on Wednesday night when I was leaving to go to church I got a flat tire. I had to catch a ride with someone else and I was complaining about having a flat tire and the person reminded me what I had said the previous Sunday, “in everything give thanks”. God had a reason and I couldn’t see it from where I was sitting.
We must realize that God knows things we don’t know and if we trust Him things will work out for His good. So just thank Him and know that He has everything under control.
So next time you are going through a tough time “give thanks” and let God work out all the other details. Trust Him because He knows what is best.
