I Thessalonians 5:18 is a well-known verse, but what does it mean to live our lives by giving thanks in all circumstances? We would rather thank God for the good that is happening around us, not the bad. Amongst the trials and difficulties of life, can we truly give thanks to God? I believe we can. We give thanks to God knowing that He holds our future in His hands. That, my friend, is giving thanks by faith. Today our hope is that no matter what lies ahead of us, we will give thanks, by faith, to God, our Founder and Perfecter of our faith.
