Be thankful for all God gives you
10.15.15 Be thankful for what God gives you
Are you thankful for what God gives you, or do you always complain wanting more? If your honest with yourself what you have is never enough we are always wanting more. God gives us what He knows we need, anything else we have is a Blessing.
We should be thankful for His favor when we didn't deserve it. God blesses us so that we can give and bless others – and so that they will see God's goodness and give thanks. Without Christ Jesus and his saving grace, we would be lost.
Most of the time when we talk to God it’s all about us, what we want, what our troubles are. We would all be so much better off if we were to spend more time praising God, thanking him for his goodness and love.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
Have you ever been somewhere where the people have nothing and they appreciate the littlest things. If you haven't I suggest you go on a mission trip to one of these places and see what it's like to live in poverty but are thankful for everything you have. You can live on the street but as long as you have a relationship with God then that's all you need to get by. He's with you every step of the way.
God I come to You thinking You for everything You've given me. You know what I need and You also give me things that I desire. I don't want to disappoint You, I want to make You happy in all I do. Please Lord be with my facebook family and friends and know I love You. I ask these things in Jesus Name Amen.
