Staying Thankful

  By Pastor Mike

We should stay thankful about what the LORD has done in our lives. Yes, we have ups and downs and we have real tragedies but when you think about what JESUS did, we really can be thankful. A lot of people have experienced the peace and comfort that can only come from GOD. The things that happen in our lives are very real. We don’t want them but we know that when we focus on JESUS, things turn around in our lives. If you’re a born again believer, we should be giving thanks to JESUS for what he did on the cross which made a way for us to live forever with HIM.

The most important thing that I’m thankful for is that I repent of my sins and HE forgives me. Then I’m thankful that I got Baptized in JESUS name. I’m very thankful that I got the Holy Ghost. Very thankful for having all of the power that JESUS has living inside me.

1 Chronicles 16:8

Give thanks unto the Lord, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.”

We really need to tell people about what JESUS did in our lives as much as we can.

1 Chronicles 16:34-35

“34 O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

35 And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise.”

Too many people lost sight of what’s important in life. They lost sight of the reason for the season. It’s all about JESUS and the season lasts from the beginning of time til the end of it as we know it. We should celebrate JESUS every day of our lives.

1 Thessalonians 5:18

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

JESUS is concerned about you. HE wants us to thank HIM in everything. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Revelation 7:12

Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.”

JESUS is everything that we’ll ever need to get through anything we go through. Whether we put ourselves in bad situations or the enemy keeps tempting us and we take the bait. JESUS is our strong tower. Let’s run to HIM and stay with HIM.
