I READ: 1 Thessalonians 5:12-22

Giving thanks refers to a condition of the heart that is filled with thanksgiving to the Lord.  The word of God reminds us that we have to give thanks in all circumstances, no matter what our personal conditions may be.  God sees our heart and He will bestow rewards to those that own a thankful heart. A heart that has the ability to give thanks in all situations is from God, not because all of the good things that God has done for us. Do not envy others if their prayers have been answered or if they have received miracles from God.  Continue to give thanks despite the fact that the miracles are yet happening.  The Lord has promised blessing and answers to those who have thankful hearts.

I DECLARE: Colossians 4:2 – Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving.

I DO: What action am I going to take after meditating on the Word of God?

I PRAY: Pray as guided by the Holy Spirit.
