Give God Thanks For Everything
One of my favorite songs is by Torren Wells called “Hills and Walls”. This song reminds me that sometimes we are going through hard times and other times it’s like celebrating on a mountain top. Despite the ups and downs of life, God is always worthy of praise. We must know how to give thanks to God in all things according to the commandment of God’s Word. Let’s see how to do it in more detail.
Thankfulness Opens The Door To God’s Presence
Sometimes it is easy to see others as ungrateful. It will not be easy to see ingratitude in ourselves. Imagine you give something to someone, they buy a gift, start using the item, but never say: “Thank you.” As a gift giver, you may feel intimidated by this visible sign of gratitude. Maybe you will try to ignore it, but you will be very upset and hurt feelings. Now imagine that the person you gave the gift to starts complaining
We all have a problem with this, but this is often how most of us respond to God and His many blessings. We act like we don’t understand how much He has already given.
It’s not good to be around someone who doesn’t say thank you. We all know others who never act thankless, but as Christians we should thank God. Christians should never be described as ungrateful. The Bible teaches us to be thankful for everything. Thanking God pleases Him.
Now, as I write this article, many are safe and at home. They are not hospitalized with COVID-19, but many complain about staying at home. Some are lucky enough to work from home, but complain that kids get in the way. Even students who are supposed to study on regular computers are now complaining.
Give Thanks To God
Not saying thank you can rob us of happiness. The Bible is full of stories of people being ungrateful and complaining despite God’s provisions, and it is clear that God does not want us to act this way. An example of this is found in the book of Exodus.
Exodus 16 tells the story of God bringing His people out of slavery. People began to complain of hunger saying they wanted bread, so God provided food. The Bible calls the food from God “manna”. At first the people were surprised by the manna, but it did not last long.
Finally, instead of being thankful, God’s people in Numbers 11 began to complain.
“I remember the fish we ate freely in Egypt. Cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions, garlic: but now our souls are withered: there is nothing but this manna before our eyes. ” Numbers 11:5-6 KJV.
In Everything Give Thanks
God’s people were not happy or grateful because God fed them. They were not even happy to be freed from slavery. The people were going to the promised land, but they were complaining.
It is easy to see that sometimes we are guilty of complaining when God graciously provides for our needs. We must learn to be thankful in all things to maintain our happiness. A lot of people should be thankful, but now, when I turn on the news, I hear the nightly news and internet ingratitude that I believe is stealing our joy. An ungrateful and mean attitude can spread. God wants His people to rise up and spread joy.
When we are not thankful, we are in danger of walking a “dark path.” The ungrateful are not happy. They are not satisfied, they are not happy. God wants each of us to give thanks and rejoice. We must learn to give thanks as a way to deliver us from the darkness that the enemy is trying to lead us into.
For when they knew God, they glorified God and did not give thanks. But their imaginations were vain and their foolish hearts were darkened. Romans 1:21 KJV
Thanking God Through Difficult Times
The enemy knows that if we can stop ourselves from giving thanks to God, we will begin to grow cold toward God and others. If we are not thankful, we can easily stop being satisfied, and we can take the opportunity to let our imagination run wild, which can lead to sin. We must always keep our eyes on God, not our circumstances.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 states that we should rejoice, pray, and give thanks at all times. Have you ever enjoyed singing? Have people ever wondered why you are so cheerful? God wants us to rejoice in Him. He wants to hear us sing, pray, and give thanks. We should all be willing to share God’s goodness with others.
Prayer is an opportunity to thank God for all He has done for us. It gives us peace as we remember and praise Him for who He is and for all His care. When we pray and give thanks to God, it humbles us, even our breath, and kills the dominant sense of entitlement that the enemy has with us as we realize that all good things come from God. Praying and thanking God softens our hearts and helps us to be more grateful to others. No matter what we face, we must never forget that praying to our Father is a gift.
We should be grateful enough to spread gratitude to others. Just as a bad attitude spreads, when we are grateful and happy, it spreads. Eye contact, a smile, and a well-meaning “thank you” can’t be underestimated, especially for someone who feels underappreciated, undervalued, and forgotten.
Thank You, Lord, For Everything By P. J. Lyons
Despite the hills and valleys of life, God walks us through each one and He is no different. He is constant in our changing world. God also gives us. The Bible teaches that every perfect gift comes from God, and He deserves our praise. Let us bow our heads and pray for thanksgiving.

Despite life’s many ups and downs, God walks us through them and is constant in our ever-changing world. We should thank God for everything. As 2012 draws to a close, we have much to thank our Lord for. There may be suffering, sickness, death and loss, but in the midst of it all, we can thank our wonderful God who is the source of all hope in adversity.
In All Things Give Thanks!!
How often do we thank God? Or do we always complain about what we don’t get and what we want? How often do we get up in the middle of the night to praise the Lord? Often we do many things and go to bed without giving a moment’s thought to our great God.
As I watched 2013 I was encouraged by an article I received about a call to prayer. It was released by the Australian Indigenous Prayer Network, “As we approach 2013, we are very thankful to Jehovah for bringing this. As the year ends, we bring in a new year for everyone. One thing we can all be sure of as we enter the New Year is that the Lord is calling us all with great enthusiasm; Awareness and understanding with commitment and dedication to all who are ready to walk this path in prayer and faith, trusting in Him once again for years to come.
So let us now begin with renewed enthusiasm; Enthusiasm Love and dedication to honoring Abba Father with a heart of “praise and gratitude” for all His children have done for each of us over the past year.”
As we enter 2013, let us draw close to Jesus, accept Him as our Lord and Savior, and honor Him.
