Things To Thank God For Daily

It’s easy to be thankful on Thanksgiving. It’s an entire holiday about gratitude. Across America, families will watch parades, eat big meals, and celebrate God’s provision over the past year.

God wants us to be thankful, but His vision for thankfulness is so much bigger than a once-a-year celebration.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 tells us to give thanks all the time and for everything. We are called to be thankful daily, not just once a year. This verse actually states “In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God.”

Be thankful For

1. A Savior

Jesus died for us (John 3:16). He paid the price for our sub so that we didn’t have ti. Jesus’s sacrifice is a beautiful example of how much God loves each of us.

2. A Fresh Start

Every day is n new beginning (Lamentations 3:22-23). We have a God of grace whose mercies begin new every morning. Our past does not define our future.

3, A Purpose

God is not done with you (Ephesians 2:10). He created us purpose, wirh purpose, and for a purpose. We ate God’s handiwork, uniquely designed to carry out His plans.

4, A Beautiful World

God’s creativity is on display 24-hours 7 days a week (Nehemiah 9:6). How many times do we drive from point A to point B and never seem to stop and look at the beauty of God’s creation?

5. The Ability To Worship

We have the freedom to worship Jesus everyday of the week (Psalm 100:4). We sing lullabies to our children and can belt out our favorite music in the car, who would we not sing to our loving Savior?

6. Peace In Any Circumstance

God does not promise that life will be easy, but He did promise us peace (John 14:27). When we take our eyes off our circumstances and focus on Him, He gives us peace,

7. A Full Life

Jesus does not want us to just endure life; He wants us to enjoy life. John 10:10) says Jesus came so that we could not only have life but to have it abundantly.

8. The Bible

The Bible does not just speak of things in the past; it speaks us today (Hebrews 4:12; 2 Timothy 3:16). Through the Bible, God instructs us, encourages us and guides us.

9. The Church

We do not have ti walk through life alone (Hebrews 10:24-25). The church is a community of people doing the best they can to follow Jesus’s example. In the church, we find the encouragement to grow in love and good deeds.

10, A Reason To Hope

We serve a God Whois not only a promise maker, but also a promise keeper (Numbers 23:19; Romans 8:28), He promises to work all things together for our good. There is no greater hope than in a promise fulfiller who has conquered death.
