Daniel, during a time of testing, prayed and gave thanks to the Lord. (Daniel 6:10) David gave thanks. (Psalm 100:4) “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving…be thankful unto Him.” (Psalm 136) “Give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good: for His mercy endureth forever!” Jesus at the first communion – “He took the cup and gave thanks.” (Matthew 26:27) Paul in (1 Corinthians 15:57) “Thanks be to God who gives us the victory!” Again in (II Corinthians 9:15) “Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift.” (Ephesians 5:20) Giving thanks always for all things!
One of man’s greatest sins is in Romans 1:21… “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful!”
This thanksgiving is a reminder to us all to put on the mind of Christ and in everything to give thanks… for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you! (I Thessalonians 5:18) Thank God there is much to be thankful for! Have a great thanksgiving!
