Daily Word for Tuesday, August 25, 2015
The Bible warns us that gratitude is something that will significantly evade those in our current cultural context.
II Timothy 3:1-2 – But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy…
Self-consideration is the chief tool the enemy uses to dim the perspective of believers. The Bible, however, is replete with instructions related to gratefulness.
Philippians 4:6-7 – Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
I Thessalonians 5:18 – In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Hebrews 13:15 – Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.
Take a moment today to think about the many things for which we can be thankful.
Take another moment and with a grateful heart follow the instruction in Hebrews 13:15; give Him thanks!
Peace and blessings!
