Nowadays, we always focus on efficiency. Hence, it is common for us to complain or criticize others. We seldom notice those amazing things around us. We sometimes assume it is certain for us to enjoy those amazing things. On the other hand, we always have worries on things which we do not possess or we criticize others for not achieving our requests. In this respect, our society is full of tension and criticism.
Today, let us return to the heart of our God and restore a good culture, Thanksgiving.
“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1Thessalonians 5:16-18)
The will from our God:
1) In every thing give thanks
When we learn to give thanks in every thing, our mindset will change too. We will be aware of the mind, favor and grace from our God. We will be able to taste the love from our God and others. If we can appreciate and have a thankful heart on the things around us, we will have a good relationship with our God and others.
2) Pray without ceasing
In our everyday lives, we sometimes may encounter challenges and difficulties, but our God gives us the power to pray in His name and over all our enemies. Therefore, we do not have to complain. This not only unable to solve the problem, but also worsen it. We should pray to our God with faith and declare that the will of our God will come true.
3) Rejoice evermore
Our God loves all of us very much. He wants us to have a joyful heart without worry or anger. His salvation ensures us to have the joy throughout our lives. Also, we have the holy spirit in our heart. We have his word to follow. We are with our God everyday. With Him, we have joy!
4) Really thankful
Let us start the culture of appreciation and thanksgiving. Let us and our companion taste the hope and joy from our God. Let more people know our God!
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” (Psalms 100:4)
“Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell of his works with songs of joy.” (Psalms 107:22)
