Thankful in Trials
BIBLE MEDITATION: “Give thanks unto the Lord, call upon His name, make known His deeds among the people.” 1 Chronicles 16:8
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: If you are a child of God, you ought to be able to thank God every moment of every day no matter what happens to you. Have you ever stopped to thank God for the water that you drink? Did you know that in some third world countries the majority of the population doesn’t have reasonably pure drinking water? Millions of people die annually just from water related diseases. If you wear a hearing aide, do you ever thank God for that? Some people wish they had a hearing aide. If you are a student in the midst of final exams, do you thank God that you have an exam to take? There are many who wish they could afford college. Do you thank God for your next breath?
ACTION POINT: Take whatever it is that looks like a trial in your life today and thank God for it! Thank Him every time the thought enters your mind to grumble or complain.
