Thankfulness and the Will of God

Have you ever wondered what God wants you to do with your life?
I hope you have. That is one of the signs of a healthy believer.

But discerning God’s specific will for our tomorrow is not always an easy thing to do today.
So here’s what I like to tell people about determining God’s will for their future…
Do what you know and you’ll know what to do. That’s right.
Do what you know and you’ll know what to do.

So, what do you know today, that God wants you to do today?
Here’s something, 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”

Well, there you go. God’s will for us today (in addition, of course, to loving Him and loving others) is that we be grateful. There is always something, somewhere, in every circumstance for which we can and should give thanks and it is God’s will today that we do exactly that.

Why is it so important to God that we be people of gratitude? - because thankfulness breeds satisfaction, peace and joy. And God wants those things for us also.

So if you want to know what God wants to do with your life,
focus on what God wants you to do today.
Be thankful.
Do what you know – then you’ll know what to do.
