Daily Devotional – 11/14/14 “Tell God thank you!”

Tell God thank you because it could be worse – all you have to do is look at someone around you and you’ll see that someone is going through something you couldn’t even imagine going through.

Tell God thank you because it should be worse – especially if it was based on our merits! Think about it. Some of us didn’t thank God when we got up this morning, we didn’t say grace over the food we ate, we take for granted the clean air we breathe, the water we don’t have to boil before we use it, the education we can freely choose, the prison we aren’t bound too, the hospital bed that doesn’t have our afflicted bodies in it or the headstone that doesn’t have our name stretched across it and yet we still wonder how it should be worse? Humph!

Tell God thank you regardless of your situation – because God doesn’t use it to bless you, He blesses you in spite of. 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”

Ephesians 5:20 says, “And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Tell God thank you no matter what because He’ll reward you for your effort!
