Hey guys! Here we are at our first Weekly Dose of Scripture for November, and that means it’s time for a theme! We should always be grateful for everything God has given us and thank Him often! November is a time where we should be reminded of this, and so this month the theme will be thankfulness! Let’s take a look at our first verse for the month!
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s Will for you in Christ Jesus. – 1 Thessalonians 5:18
No matter what is going on in our lives, there will always be something to be grateful for. No matter how much Paul in the Bible was suffering, he was always thanking God. Even in tribulation we should give thanks. What kind of things do we have to be thankful for even in tribulation? Well, we may go through trials because God wants to teach us things, and we can be grateful for that. When Paul was going through a trial, he praised God for it. He delighted in weakness, even (2 Corinthians 12:10). There will always be something to be grateful for no matter what you’re going through; we just have to have the right mindset to find it!
I hope this encourages you to thank the Lord even in the hard times! As always, God bless y’all and have a wonderful week!
