I Thessalonians 5:18 says, “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” Concerning you! This means that God has contemplated all that will happen to you and will only allow what He considers to be best for you, no one else, just you. Therefore, whatever happens is not only God’s will, but it is God’s will concerning you. This means that God, who is all powerful and all knowing, has thought upon puny little you. He knows every hair on your head. He knows every thought that you think, even before you think it. Psalm 139:4 tells us, “There is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether.” God has perfect knowledge of you, and all your thoughts and actions are open before Him, and still He loves you. This is pretty awesome and amazing to me. We all need to thank God for being such a great loving and caring God.
Thought for Today: Give thanks in everything you do, and do it as unto the Lord.
