We Can Always Give Thanks Because of God’s Presence With Us

November 24, 2014 | Tags: ,

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
His faithful love endures forever.

Psalm 107:1

This week we celebrate Thanksgiving. It is a day of thankfulness to all God has provided for us. Let Him be the center of all you do and think today. None of us would have anything we have if it wasn’t for the gracious love of God.

Some of us may not feel like being thankful today. Some of us may be discouraged and frustrated, hurt, angry or sad. I promise, you can rejoice anyway, because you have a God who loves you and knows intimately what you are facing. What I have come to understand is what I truly need, no matter what I am going through, is the presence of God with me. And because I am a follower of Jesus Christ, I have the promise He will never leave me. Because of His presence, I always have a reason to be thankful.

Heavenly Father, I praise you today. I am thankful that you are with me, and your presence is all I need, no matter how I am feeling, no matter what I am going through, you are with me. Jesus, you are sufficient to meet all my needs today. I choose today to thank you and to keep my eyes on you instead of the discouragements or distractions around me. Today, Jesus, I choose you above all else. I praise you that you have already provided for me today, because you have provided yourself. I will sing praises to you in my heart, for you are my God, and your faithful love for me will never end. Happy Thanksgiving, Jesus. I love you. Amen.

Rejoice always!
Pray constantly.
Give thanks in everything,
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
