Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5: 18 NIV
God is good! He provides HOPE as we trust in Him. He opens our eyes for Jesus and fills us with desire to know where to find perfect PEACE. He provides reasons to be grateful. And as we consider ALL He has done; He helps us witness the power of His faithful love.
God opens our eyes to see glimpses of good and recognize His greatness. When we experience difficult days, He arms us with PEACE. He provides what we need. He reminds us to be faithful, when trials rob our strength.
Worry will never allow us to recognize God’s provisions. It will turn our focus away from joy. But God will know how to bring PEACE to our souls. He will help us examine our lives. And if we specifically pray for calm in His presence, He will open our hearts for praise.
The Bible says, “The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” Exodus 14: 14 Worry will squelch the strength of those who don’t deserve to suffer. But God will change our way of thinking, as we consider what He’s already done.
GOOD will come from the love of His faithfulness. And if we simply say, “thank you, God”, He will turn groans of frustration into beautiful prayers of praise. We will begin to see our blessings, leave worry behind and find reason to honor our Father with the love of a grateful heart.
God, Thank you for the power of Your greatness! You are mighty, holy and true. Forgive us when groans of our hearts become louder than prayers of our praise. THANK YOU for everything You provide! Help us experience how it feels to release our worries and find PEACE in the presence of strength. Humble our hearts, so we will recognize YOU are DESERVING of so much more than what we choose to give. We will love You all of our days. Thank you for Your amazing grace. We know You are handling EVERY single thing. Thank you, Lord! Thank you! Amen
