“For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, provided it is received with thanksgiving; for it is sanctified by God’s Word and by prayer.” 1 Timothy 4: 5
Paul’s teachings of thanksgiving never ceased. He continues to remind us to: Thank God! Thank God for everything and at all times! Thank God! Thank God! Thank God! For it is only with thanksgiving and praise for God that we will find true peace.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.”
Through the gift of God’s peace we bring a bit of heaven to earth. We become the face of Jesus to others. We become His Hands and His feet. We become His heart here on earth. We become one body, the body of Christ.
“And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful.”
Be thankful. Everything, absolutely everything is a gift! There is no such thing as coincidence. When something happens, it is a gift from God to bring us closer to Him.
Praise God! He is the Giver of Life. He is the Creator! He does not disappoint. Praise God! Praise God! Praise God!
