Give Thanks in Everything


November 16
As I was just about to close my eyes Monday night when God brought to mind that earlier this Fall I had purchased an old, 2014, study from She Reads Truth called "In Everything Give Thanks"  It's a 12 day study, so it will take me through Thanksgiving.  For now the plan is to share with you excerpts from the study and the prayer the study challenges the reader to write each day.

"Our circumstances are big, but our God is bigger.  As we learn to trust the bigness of our God and the sureness of His sovereignty, we find His will is not as much a path as it is a way of walking.  Thanksgiving is not just an emotion.  We are to declare God's goodness in every circumstance!  We are to let the world know what He has done and what He is doing!  We are to pray to Him, seek Him, give Him thanks with an expectant, joyful heart.  God is good. In everything, He is good." SRT

Let's pray:
Father, Your steadfast love never ceases, your mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning. As we put our heads down tonight, we can do so with rejoicing and thanksgiving knowing your faithfulness is great and our hope is in You.  You are our portion.  It is by grace we have been saved, not of anything we ourselves have done.  What an amazing gift to receive!  Whatever tomorrow brings, we know You are sufficient to see us through and for that we say, "Thank You!"
We lay our petitions before You, trusting the outcome to You. In Jesus' Name, Amen
