In ALL circumstances, give thanks and remain in prayer.

Isaiah‬ ‭55‬:‭8‬-‭9‬ ‭
““For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says The Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the Earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”

In this verse Paul exhorts his readers to give thanks in all circumstances. He adds that it is God’s will to do so. Regardless how difficult our circumstances may be, we can find reasons to thank God. We can be thankful that all things work together for our good if we belong to HIm (Romans 8:28). We can be thankful that God’s grace is sufficient to sustain us in every circumstance (2 Corinthians 12:9). We can be thankful that nothing can separate us from God’s love (Romans 8:37–39). We can be thankful that God even supports us spiritually when trials produce difficulty in our prayer life (Romans 8:26). Rough circumstances also prove the genuineness of our faith (1 Peter 1:6–7).

Paul previously wrote to “Rejoice always” (1 Thessalonians 5:16). Joy is not the same thing as happiness. In a similar way, Scripture notes the difference between giving thanks “for” our circumstances, as opposed to giving thanks “in” our circumstances. For example, a car wreck may not find us giving thanks for a twisted fender and smashed radiator, but we can give thanks that we have insurance and a God who is always present with us. We may not thank God for an illness, but we can be thankful for medicines and doctors. Persecution is not something we would be thankful for, but we can be thankful that God can use that hardship for our eternal benefit.

And we pray:

Father LORD, I come before You today with all my worries and my lack. You have Written my story, You see and know all things. Help me LORD to learn to give You praise and thanks in every situation that I find myself. Father, in my life LORD be glorified. Use me LORD, in my life Your will be done I pray 🙏🏾, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

We know the power of being grateful, but sometimes it’s hard to remember to give thanks. It can be easier to take what life (and God) gives you on a daily basis if you read Bible verses about thankfulness. We get so wrapped up in our lives — hardships, challenges, struggles and all — that it’s easy to get lost in a sea of doom if you’re in a negative place. Or, if you’re in a positive space, you might still forget to give thanks to God because you’re too busy enjoying life. But, it’s important to remember to be thankful for our health, well-being, gifts (material and not), and everything else in between.

For people of faith including Christians, positive blessings come from God. His love, presence, inspiration, and influence are the reasons we have what we have. To honor what he has given us, we may pray daily. If you need a reminder or some inspiration for giving thanks to the Lord, these Bible verses about being grateful can help strengthen your faith. Whether you’ve encountered every bump on the road today or you’ve had a good day filled with blessings, make sure to take the time to pray before bed and thank Him for His Love and blessings.
