Have you ever stopped to think about the infinite number of good things God has given you? To be able to understand this simple fact is already a reason to be thankful. Many people cannot understand, many people cannot see, many people cannot speak. We do have that honor! However, if we are sincere, we will sometimes focus more on our challenges or the things we don't have, rather than expressing our joy and gratitude for all the beautiful things in our lives that we have.
At the BibleIn the same way, we find many scriptures that can help us, reminding us of the many reasons why we should we should be grateful. Let us look at some of them and express gratitude for our loving Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and His great mission on earth.
Let us concentrate on the goodness and love of God.
A grateful and humble heart is full of admiration for God, especially in the face of the reality of his eternal love. God does not love us today and forget us tomorrow as a good part of human beings is. Love of God will always exist. No matter how many times we may fail him, he remains faithful, loves us and is willing to forgive us. How can we not be grateful for such love? Let us be attentive and not miss the opportunity to thank him for the details of the love he gives us every day. As 1 Chronicles 16:34 says, let us praise God because He is good and His great love will accompany us forever.
Manifest sincere gratitude
Gratitude to God does not have to be private between Him and us. It is also important to express this in front of others, especially when we meet with our family and with our brethren who profess the same faith as we do. It is an honor to be able to go to the temple and praise God together and share what He has done in our lives. Our personal testimony of his divinity and expression of our gratitude to God can encourage and inspire others. Let us not be ashamed to express to others our love and gratitude for God's infinite mercy and great love.
Believe in God and have confidence in Him
At Psalm 28:7 we are reminded that the Lord is our strength and shield, our heart must trust in Him for help. We must give Him infinite thanks so that our heart will leap for joy.
We should thank God for giving us the strength we need under any circumstances. God is also our shield of defense against enemy aggression. We may never be sure how many dangers God has saved us from and not know it.
We are not alone in difficulties and trials, God is always accompanying us at our right hand, helping and strengthening us. Remember that his presence is always with us, this should encourage us and fill us with joy and security.
Let us strengthen ourselves through the peace that peace can bring us.
Do not worry about anything, on the contrary, on all occasions you should ask God and thank Him with prayer and supplication. God's peace through all understanding will defend your heart and mind in Christ. Jesus. This is what it says Philippians 4: 6-7The Bible is a very special scripture that teaches us the care that God provides for us as his beloved children.
There are many situations in life that can cause anxiety: diseasesfamily problems, economic situation, etc. But our gaze should not depend on the environment, but on Jesus Christ and his ability to change the environment. We can ask him and thank him for what he has helped us so far. We know that he will continue to do so as long as we are faithful to him.
Let us thank God for caring for us as 1 Peter 5:7 says. This knowledge will fill us with peace and strengthen our faith. When we focus on the abilities God has to help us instead of the problems, our mind changes and His peace and love help us to see things from a more sacred and hopeful perspective.
Remember that God is always ready to bless us.
When we praise him and thank him for all of his blessingsGod's heart will rejoice. There is nothing and no one in the world more generous than God. He has given us everything related to life and godliness as it says 1 Peter 2: 1-3 and our gratitude will never stop.
In Ephesians 1:3 it says that God is to be praised, that he is the Father of Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with spiritual blessings in Jesus Christ. When we recognize what God has given us through Christ, we will praise and pray prayers of gratitude to God for it. In Jesus Christ we are saved and by his grace we receive the gifts He has given to all who accept Him as their Savior and Redeemer.
Let us give infinite thanks to God for everything he gives us.
At James 1:17 we are told that every good gift and every perfect gift descends from the heights where the Father who created heaven is and that He does not change like the stars, nor does He move like a shadow.
Day by day we continue to think about being able to breathe, see, hear, walk and talk. What a great blessing for these privileges! We do so many things automatically because we are human, we are what we are. May God give us health, family, friendssalvation through Jesus and all the good in our lives is a very high privilege that only He can give us. Let us not allow tribulations and daily problems to prevent us from having a grateful heart to recognize all the blessings of life.
Let us always be thankful for the opportunity to save ourselves.
The gift of salvation is within the reach of all God's children. At Ephesians 2:8-9 we are taught that by grace we are saved through faith and this does not come from us but is a precious gift from God. The best gift we can receive is the salvation of our souls. God has made this possible for us through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. He paid the price for our sins and because of this sacrifice, we can be forgiven and reconciled with God as it says Romans 5: 1-2. Let us accept his gifts by faith and let God change us more and more according to his image. Let us never forget to thank the Father for the eternal life we can gain in Christ through our faithfulness and love in keeping his commandments.
We are representatives of Christ
At Colossians 3:17 says that whether we act with words or deeds in the name of the Lord Jesus, we should thank God the Father through him.
There is a big difference between doing things out of duty and doing things out of gratitude, respect and to please God. This not only makes us and the people around us happier, but we can also obtain abundant physical and mental health.
Doing everything in the name of Jesus Christ means that we are his representatives to the people we interact with every day. If they see Jesus in us, if we treat them with kindness as he wants us to and do it from the heart, not grudgingly, we will glorify him and act with a transformed and loving heart.
Let us be grateful even in difficulties
As children of God, even in situations that hurt or confuse us, we can always find something to be thankful for. We know that all things are good for those who love God as Romans 8:28 says and so we move forward with confidence. It is not that we will deny our pain, but that we experience His peace in the pain and so we will gain purpose within that situation.
Sometimes, looking back on the past, we find that it is in the most painful or difficult moments that we experience the power and intimacy with God most clearly. Let us keep our spirit focused on God's presence and goodness and never cease to thank Him every day of our lives as we can read in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 where it says that we should give thanks to God in every situation because this is his will in Christ Jesus.
We are part of the kingdom of light
In this way, you will patiently persevere in every situation, happy in gratitude to the Father. He enables us to share the legacy of the saints in the Kingdom of Light. He delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son. In whom we can find salvation and the sorry of our sins. This is reflected in Colossians 1:11-14.
Thanksgiving helps us to persevere and allows us to remember who we are as disciples of Jesus. Thanks to the work of Christ we belong to the kingdom of light, this is our legacy, our inheritance from the moment we surrender to Jesus and accept him as our Savior and Redeemer.
Despite all the dominion that darkness contains, it will no longer have power over us if we do not let it enter our lives. We can be saved through Jesus and his infinite atonement. HE will light our way in all circumstances if we take His name upon us and choose to follow Him always. God will help us and guide us to act according to His character and His holy will. We have the best possible tutors! Let us take advantage of all that God and his son Jesus Christ have done for us to live a triumphant life accompanied by a tolerant, grateful and loving heart.
