Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated in Canada, the United States, some of the Caribbean islands, and Liberia. It began as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Similarly named festival holidays to occur in Germany and Japan.
Jesus set us an example of thanksgiving (John 11:41). The heavenly host engage in thanksgiving (Rev 4:9). We are commanded to offer thanksgiving to God (Ps 50:14). Paul said, in everything give thanks (1Th 5:18).Thanksgiving is the key to miracles in our life Click To Tweet
Thanksgiving is the key to miracles in our life. Take for example the famous story of multiplication of the bread and fish. Jesus had huge challenge, multitudes of people in front of Him were hungry, and He didn’t have enough food to feed them. He didn’t panic, complain, or get discouraged. Surprisingly, Jesus didn’t even ask for more bread, He GAVE THANKS for what He had.
Most of us, if we don’t have enough, we make such a big deal about it, we start crying, complaining, and rarely we will GIVE THANKS. Jesus didn’t have enough yet He still gave thanks. After giving thanks for little, it multiplied.
So, when will you pick up your few loaves and thank God for them instead of accusing Him of giving you too little…during this Thanksgiving…GIVE THANKS for you got; see if God wouldn’t give you what you don’t have.
