1 Thessalonians 5:18

Give thanks in ALL circumstances, for this [giving thanks] is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus

There’s a song I love called “Even If” and when I hear it, I think of this scripture. Give thanks in all circumstances, for THIS [giving thanks] is God’s will for you. The chorus of the song goes:

I know You’re able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone
I know the sorrow, and I know the hurt
Would all go away if You’d just say the word
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone

Is this your testimony today? Maybe you have a lot going on at once. Maybe you still have some prayers you haven’t seen come to pass YET. Maybe there’s an illness that hasn’t been reported healed YET. Maybe there’s a job that hasn’t come through YET. Maybe there’s a home that hasn’t opened for you YET. Maybe there’s a spouse that hasn’t loved you YET. And you’re waiting on God to speak a word on your behalf and change the atmosphere but EVEN IF He doesn’t, will you thank Him?

Thank Him for the closed doors too because you never know what’s behind them – He does. Thank Him for the waiting seasons because you never know how to grow in patience until you’re faced with time. Thank Him for the lonely times because sometimes you never know if He’s truly enough until He’s all you have. ❤️
