Reasons To Give Thanksţ (403 hits)

by Dr. Charles F. Stanley
We often remember to thank Him when something positive happens in our life. But 1 Thessalonians 5:18 tells us to give thanks in all things, which includes difficult times as well as happier circumstances. Of course, thanking God for something painful may seem illogical—but it is not. There are a number of reasons why, no matter what we are going through, it truly is “good to give thanks to the Lord” (Psalm 92:1 niv).

The first reason is stated in Psalm 107:1, which tells us to “give thanks to the Lord, for He is good (emphasis added).” Even though life may be difficult, our hope and joy remain because we serve the eternal, omniscient, omnipotent God of love.

Second, our gratitude magnifies the Lord. He is glorified when we acknowledge His goodness and thank Him for His continual blessings. God is also pleased when, even in difficult times, we obediently thank Him.

Third, thankfulness reinforces our faith. When we remember how God has met our needs, protected us, and answered cries for help, our trust in Him is strengthened.
