18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
How can we live a Life Of Thanksgiving?
1. Remember what God HAS DONE.
16 For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.
Luke 17:11-19 (ESV)
11 On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance 13 and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” 14 When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed. 15 Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; 16 and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. 17 Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? 18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”
28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,[a] for those who are called according to his purpose.
20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us,
3. Trust what God WILL DO.
11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare[a] and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
11 For God shows no partiality.
What if you woke up today with only the things that you thanked God for yesterday?
107 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever!
