CLCBC | Knowing Jesus Daily Devotional | 1 Thessalonians 5:18  In all [ every ] things give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Beloved,  you must come to understand God. That He meant everything written in the scriptures.  He commanded you in particular,  to thank Him always in every situation.  It is not an advise  but a commandment. It is not optional but compulsory.  See it.
See  instances  in the Bible days,  how saints of old thank Him. You also must join them in thanking Him always,  whatever is happening in your life.

Psa 34:14  I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.  I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

Psa 92:1-4  It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night, Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound. For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.

Psa 100:15  Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.  Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.  Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Psa 103:15  Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; He redeems thy life from destruction; and crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Also He satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Moses and the children of Israel sang  after the Lord gave them victory  over Pharaoh and Egypt.  You also must sing whenever God gives you victory over your enemies.  

Exo 15:113  Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. The Lord is my strength and song,  and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him. The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name.  Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea. The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.  Thy right hand, O Lord, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy. And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble. And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap,  and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea. The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.  Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.  Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?  Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them. Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.

2. Job worshiped God when all His properties and children were destroyed by Satan.
Whenever you too have lost anything, you must still praised God  that the  loose  was moderated.
You did not loose all and that includes  your life.  So thank God as commanded.
If God had not  intervene  may be your life too might have been lost so always thank God.

Job 1:20  Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshiped,

Remember this  don’t ever  forget.  When Israel murmured because of a challenge.  God was displeased  and destroyed them.
You could loose many things even your life ,  for complaining.   See it.

Num 11:12  And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; His anger was kindled; the fire of the Lord burnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp. Also the people cried unto Moses; when Moses prayed unto the Lord, the fire was quenched.

So whatever happens,  always thank God according to this passage.  See it.

1 Thessalonians 5:18  In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Dearly beloved,  Jesus during His earthly ministry gave us a example with His lifestyle,  on how to live a thankful life.  See some of them.
When His Father in heaven supported His ministry,  He thanked God. 

Mat 11:25  At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

When He multiplied bread , He thanked God.

Mat 15:36  And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

When He was instituting the Lord”s supper ,  He thanked God.

Mat 26:27  And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

When Lazarus died,  thanked God.

Jn 11:41  Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

Before He was arrested and crucified He thanked  God.

Mat 26:30  And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.

He then taught His disciples in Bible days and His disciples of all ages and that includes you.  To thank God in prayer first,  before you asked for anything.  See it.

Mat 6:910  After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven

The blessed  Holy Spirit then used the apostle Paul to write to the church of the blessings derivable from thanking God on this side of heaven  and even at eternity.
Also the consequences of  not been thankful is very fearful.
So He commanded the church to thank God in every  situation and at all times.  See it.
See how other scriptures affirmed it.

Ephesians 5:20  Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Philippians 4:6  Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Colossians 3:17  And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

Hebrews 13:15  By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

See the consequences of not thanking God is fearsome.  It could even jeopardise the eternal well being of the person.

Rom 1:2127 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

1Co 10:1011  Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

Friend,  it is important for you to continue to prepare for the coming of our Lord tirelessly.
This is because only those who are looking forward to His coming shall have part in the dawning rapture.

Heb 9:28  So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Friend ,  it is very very important that you remain thankful,  if you desire to  be part of this imminent event.
The unthankful in both old and new testaments were destroyed here on earth  and damned at eternity.
The commandment of God to you is be thankful and keep thanking Him in all circumstances of life.

Col 3:15  And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Psalms 100:4  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Friend,  why must you be thankful?  It is because after the rapture,  for all eternity,  why others shall be suffering in the eternal lake of fire.
We shall be worshipping and praising and thanking God for all eternity.  You shall be there in Jesus name.
See some references on this.

Rev 4:810  And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.  And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

Whenever you read about twenty four elders in the book of revelations.  It is the symbolic representation of the raptured  saints. So it is referring to how you and others shall worship God for all eternity.

Rev 7:916  After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. One of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?  Also I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. He said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.

Rev 19:49  And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia. And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. To her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. Also he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. He saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

So friend you have no reason to  recount or regret because of the challenges in your life ,  because of your Christian faith.  Keep thanking God.  This because this is the only thing you and us shall do for all eternity  as members of the twenty four elders.  You shall be there in Jesus name.

See you at the top in Jesus name
