“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” (I Thessalonians 5:18)
This is the season that serves as a special reminder of all that God has provided for us.
But this simple truth is not always easy to see. Our “storehouse” mentality does not allow us to “rest” in Christ and follow this command of scripture.
Yes, it is a command. We are to be thankful in EVERY thing.
We want a big store of money that we can draw from at any time. A storage that we can see physically. That is obvious to us when we go to our online checking account to see our balance.
Or we need a big pile of strength, or self confidence or a clear path that can take us a good distance down the road.
