This is God’s will // 11-06-20

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:16-18‬ ‭NIV

Each of these actions is a verse in its own right, with each one sounding more impossible than the last! Is it even feasible to rejoice always? How do you pray continually? And giving thanks even when circumstances might be painful and difficult? And yet we’re told that this is God’s will for us as Christians, so it must be possible and beneficial! Just maybe this is how we get spiritual strength, maybe this is how God guards our hearts and minds and enables His peace to flow. So, impossible as it might sound, let’s keep intentionally focusing on all that we can give thanks for, let’s keep talking to God and leaning on His wisdom, let’s keep rejoicing that this isn’t the end and we have hope for all that He has reserved for us in heaven! Let’s do all we can to fulfil His will, because only then will we see our faith and love grow, only then will we get to know Him better and only then will we see His very best plans working out in and through our lives! 🙏🏼😊
