We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. May God bless you richly today.
We have just celebrated another Thanksgiving Day. This is a day that we set aside in our nation for the specific purpose of giving thanks to God Almighty. Despite what the revisionists tell us, many of our founding fathers were very committed Christians. Even though some of them were not very strong in their faith in Christ, they still believed that the Bible was the Word of God. They held regard for God and understood that God gave us this great nation. So in 1789 our first president, George Washington, issued a proclamation to set apart a day to give thanks to the Lord.
However, many in our culture don’t seem to know what to do with a day called Thanksgiving. For many, it is just something that happens between Halloween and Christmas. It is the day they stuff themselves before they go shopping on Black Friday. And many people don’t even call it Thanksgiving anymore; they simply call it Turkey Day. They have forgotten that Thanksgiving was originally about setting aside a day to give praise and thanks to God.
But for the Christian, however, every day should be a day of thanksgiving to God. In fact, research has revealed that when people have an attitude of gratitude to God their health is better and they actually live longer. They experienced fewer heart issues and fewer aches and pains. It also affects their outlook on life. Dr. Robert Emmons, a psychology professor at the University of California has pointed out that gratitude blocks toxic, negative emotions, such as envy, resentment and regret. These emotions can destroy ones happiness.
Thanksgiving is still born in adversity; so perhaps, it meant even more to many of us this year than in previous years. It is still a day for the courageous, those who face their difficulties and fight to remain thankful to God in spite of their circumstances. Maybe right now you are in a situation where things are not making much sense. There may be a lot of uncertainty, and it is hard for you.
But you can still give thanks to God. You can still be grateful to Him. As the Bible clearly states, “In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” (1Thes. 5:18).Amen!
