True Thanksgiving

Posted: November 25, 2010 in Everyday Life Rules

What is thanksgiving?

Many people think it comes just once a year and all the family gather around and have a huge feast. Some will go and do good deeds to support the welfare of the less fortunate. Others prepare their black friday lists for the following days shopping trip. Some families will pray and thank God for His works over that year.

Well true thanksgiving is everyday and all day. The word of God tells us that praise should continually be in our mouths and to be thankful. When we praise God we can’t help but to give Him thanks for all He has done for us. When we totally submit to Him we give back according to how He instructs us; we shop out of need and not lust; and we have the understanding of why we must praise and thank Him.

Psalm 95: 2 – Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.

Psalm 100:4 – Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise.

Philippians 4:9 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

God is saying to us be thankful for everything, praise Me continually, pray unto Me, and I will supply you with understanding and all that you need. It does not state in any of these scriptures to do this on just one day. But it does say to: Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18.

It’s okay to celebrate Thanksgiving Day in November every year with our loved ones, to shop the next day, and do good deeds, etc. But remember that True Thanksgiving is EVERYDAY ALL DAY!
