• Being Thankful

    by Jonathan R Baldock

    Trust in Jesus in all circumstances by giving all circumstances to Him.
    1 Thessalonians CH.5 v.8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, and put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation.

    Give thanks in everything because this is the will of God, both the good and the bad. The Bible doesn’t say be thankful for everything but be thankful in everything. Being thankful is not just a suggestion but a command in both good times and bad times.

    When me begin thanking god in all things; we become conscious of  God. Count your blessings, name them one by one as the song goes! i.e. health, life, abilities, family, house. And through it all, trust in Jesus. Depend on His Word, for He is the source of everything, and everything is His since He created everything. Therefore it only makes to thank Him for everything, both the good and the bad as even the bad, good things can come from, and will if you trust in Him. I’m saying this from my own personal experiences and my recent current ongoing situation.

                Remember the value of Trusting in Him. In everything, both the good and the bad, give thanks to the Lord.
    Romans Ch.8 v28-39
    28. We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose. 29. For those whom he foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, in order that He might be the firstborn within a large family. 30. And those whom He predestined He also called and those whom He called He also justified; and those whom He justified He also glorified.
    God’s Love in Christ Jesus
    31. What then are we to say about those things? If God is for us, who is against us? 32. He who did not withhold His own Son, but gave Him up for all of us, will He not with Him also give us everything else? 33. Who will bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34. Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us. 35. Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36. As it is written,
                “For your sake we are being killed
                            all day long;
                we are accounted as sheep to be
    37. No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the Love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Remember: all things work together for good, God opens doors when we Trust in Him.

    Things to Remember:

    1. God is in control! In all situations and circumstances. God brings something good when we Trust in Him, ‘In Jesus Name’. This is where we find strength.
    2. God will always provide for our needs, look to God with confidence because nothing is too difficult for God.

    Mathew Ch.6 v.25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about our life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, or what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
    Do not worry! Worrying doesn’t help for anything! Seek God first and  He will provide!

    1. The Lord is always with us. We are never alone. Nothing can separate us from Him and He Loves us ever.

    Psalm Ch.105 v.1 O give thanks to the Lord, call on His name, make known His deeds among the peoples.
