God's command to every one of us is clear: in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. How do we adopt an attitude of gratitude on a daily basis? Especially when things are falling apart in our lives. We do it by understanding three things. 1. God doesn’t owe us anything. Everything we have is a gift from God. 2. Thanksgiving is faith turned inside out. When we are thankful, regardless of the problems, it shows that we really trust God and truly believe He is in control. And 3. Thanksgiving honors God. Psalm 50:23 tells us, "He who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors Me." No doubt, thanksgiving can be really hard at times. But when you give thanks, even through tears, God will be glorified and you will be blessed. Now that is some REAL HOPE.
