1 Thessalonians 5:18

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Have you ever been in the midst of a tough time in your life and you wondered why God was putting you through that hard time?  I know I’ve been there.  But the best moment is when He shows you why He put you through what He did. I like to think that God’s plan for us always comes full circle eventually, whether it’s immediate or it comes later when you least expect it.  Those moments show us that all that trouble was worth it because God wanted it to work out in your favor.  This bible verse teaches me that I need to thank God for giving me the hard times I have faced because I know that one day He will show me why He put me through those hard times. It may be difficult to see it in the moment, but when it happens, it’s a great relief.  Take a break tonight and thank God for your current circumstance in life, whether it be hard or not, happy or sad; God will soon show you what He is doing in your life.

God Bless!

  1. Awesome message! Thanks for sharing. Recently our pastor challenged us with this saying ‘If you had tomorrow what you thanked God for today, what would you have?’ He preceded to talk about a woman who was tortured for being a Christian, and whilst the ordeal she didn’t fail to thank God for the opportunity to suffer with Jesus. She was thanking God out loud whilst getting beaten up. What a huge challenge.
