Saying thank you is something we all get taught to say at a very early age. We’re taught to say thank you whenever someone gives us something or does something for us. But how often do we stop and say thank you to God?
God knows that saying thank you doesn’t always come easily or naturally to us. However he does command us to be thankful.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving: go into his courts with praise.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
We often bring our sins and guilt offerings to God, but still forget to say thank you to Him. You might wonder, “what have I to thank God for?”. Even when you feel you have nothing to thank God for, you must still try to be thankful, even if that just means thanking God for allowing us the ability to thank him!
Spend a few minutes thinking about the things you can thank God for today. here are a few suggestions:
- Thank him for knowing you and caring about you
- Thank him for your family
- Thank him for your friends
Remember to thank God regularly for all he does, no matter how you are feeling or what you’re experiencing.
Thank you God.
