Dear Friends in Christ Jesus,
Greetings and compliment of the season. We are in a season of thanksgiving and remembering all that we have been blessed with from God. We are reminded in the Scripture in Philippians 4:4-7, "Rejoice in the Lord always again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer, and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God; And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and mind through Christ Jesus".
Yes Friends, It can be hard for someone who is expereincing various kind of trails and challenges to be in a state of rejoicing and praising God. I have experience what it feels like to go through challenges and still have to sing praise and remain in a state of thankfulness. It is difficult but in the midst of that difficult situation God still expect us to be thankful no matter what life throws at us.
The Apostle Pau points us to the key to break out of our pain and sorrow by calling us to "rejoice in the midst of our crisis. Our focus shouldn't be on what we might be going through, but our focus should be on the awsomeness of God. Our focus should be on the bigness of what God can do through us even in the midst of our challenges. When we focus on our problem we limit what God can do through us and with us. Beloved, we must understand that our needs are opportunity for God to transform our lives. Though sometime that transforming process can be painful and hopeless but if we obey and accpet the challenges through praising and rejoicing in the presence of God I have no doubt in my heart that our delieverance will surely come in no time.
As you celebrate this season of thankgiving don't fail to find something to be thankful for because it is your duty to praise and reojice at all time before God. The praising and rejoicing you offer give room for the Peace of God to enter into your life inspite of your challenges. It calms you in the midst of your trails and take your focus from the problems.It is your praise that set the platform for God to move on your behalf.
Keep praising and rejoicing always and you shall find the desire of your heart. God bless you and happy THANKSGIVING!
