Thanks Giving Day, Every Day!


What does the Bible say about Thanks Giving? Is it enough to thank GOD in our prayers & in his presence? Does it simply say to give thanks with lips? Prayer & Songs?
Just remembering to thank GOD in prayer make us like Pharisees who are blindly indulged in the rituals so much, that they have forgotten about the true essence of the GOD Almighty. Didnt they detest Christ for his love & mercy for people of the margins of then world.
Thanking GOD is not an exercise. It is a walk of life (in Christ). Let us pray to the LORD for his holy spirit to help us understand the upcoming message and lead us into HIS light of truth.

Salvation

Thank GOD that we are ALIVE. Yes, Every moment we are alive is HIS pure mercy and grace.
I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus.  For in him you have been enriched in every way--in all your speaking and in all your knowledge-

A Standing Witness for Christ

Thank GOD by standing as a witness giving testimonies.
In that day you will say: "Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.


Being Generous

Thank GOD by being generous to the less fortunate, by tithing, by supporting charities & missionaries, by supporting your Church, by supporting GOD’s kingdom.
You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.  This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.

Acceptance

Thank GOD by accepting that our GOD is a GOOD GOD giving us perfect gifts. Thank GOD by not rejecting or complaining of things, people and situations.
For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.

Let the WALK do the TALK

Thank GOD in everything you do and say, i.e. alignment of your personal, professional, social and spiritual life with the WORD of GOD.
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Thank GOD for his directions & righteousness.

I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.

Enduring Love

Why thank GOD in all our circumstances for he is mother like GOD, His love for us endures forever.
Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

 "Give thanks to the LORD Almighty, for the LORD is good; his love endures forever." For I will restore the fortunes of the land as they were before,' says the LORD.

Thanks Giving Day, Every Day

Thank GOD always. Do not set aside a specific time, specific occasions, are only during the moments of victories. Thank GOD in all our circumstances. Remember Romans 8:28
give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

HE is the KING, GOD Almighty, Christ the Savior!

Thank GOD because HE is the KING. He is our father. He is our protector. He is our provider. He is our peace, joy & hope!
Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.  For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods.

As Thanks Giving to the LORD is mainly practiced through the worship songs and prayers, we have to remember that Thanks giving is not just a lip service but should be loudly resonant in our daily walks & talks (James 1:22). Most importantly we should recognize what is not thanks giving to the LORD and should be watchful of it like Cribbing, Bragging, Bitterness, Greedy, Self reliance, Pride, Depression, Prolonged grieving etc.

In this Thanks Giving Day, let us THANK GOD for ALL the things, ALL the trials, ALL the Happiness, ALL the peace & for ALL HIS Love,…Calvary Resurrecting Love! Amen!
