Maintaining A Grateful Heart (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV)

God’s will for us is that we always maintain a grateful heart. Notice that the Word says we are to give thanks in all things, not for all things. This means in all circumstances and conditions—whether they be good or bad—we can be grateful. In fact, practicing gratitude in the midst of adersity is a powerful statement of faith which says that we know that we have already been given the victory in Christ. And so whether we are on the mountaintop or in the valley, let us be thankful as we look to everything God has provided for us by His grace.
