1 Thess 5:16-18 (NIV)
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
God has given man the ability to exercise his free will in all situations regardless of what he God wills. In this scripture, we are given these tools to apply in all situations: rejoice no matter what, talk to God always and give thanks in all of these situations. We are also reminded that this is his will for you in particular because he has an insight into your future and designed every situation to prepare you for the coming glory. Learn to be joyful. Thanksgiving resets your focus to his will. Shalom!
Dear Jesus, please grant me the strength to rejoice in every situation, thanking you for the little and big victories, while drawing closer to you through prayer. In Jesus’ name I pray.
