DAY 20 FRIDAY: APRIL 2018

ALWAYS GIVE THANKS TO GOD!

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place (2 Corinthians 2:14).

 

            Every Christian is expected to always give thanks to God because thanksgiving is a great weapon for victorious living in Christ Jesus. A life of thanksgiving is a life full of God’s knowledge and victory. The Bible says in the opening text that thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. When a Christian learns to always give thanks to God, he diffuses the fragrance of God’s knowledge.

God expects us as Christians to always come into His presence with thanksgiving. Of course, He does not expect us to be moody and sad in His presence. The more a Christian gives thanks to God the more he is attracted into God’s presence. No wonder the Bible says in Psalm 95:2, “Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; let us shout joyfully to Him with Psalms.” Thanksgiving attracts God’s grace and favor in one’s life.

When a Christian learns to always give thanks to God, he is offering sacrifice of praise with the fruit of the lips unto the Lord. Such sacrifices are priceless and glorious in God’s sight. That is why the Bible says in Hebrews 13:15, “Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.” A Christian who always gives thanks to God will surely overcome life’s challenges no matter the circumstances.

 

Daily Tip: A life of thanksgiving is a life of victory which always diffuses the fragrance of God’s knowledge. Shalom!

 

Golden Text: Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God (Philippians 4:6).
