1 Thessalonians 5:18

"Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." NIV

"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." KJV

The Word tells us that all things work out for good to those who belong to Christ. So whether we are experiencing blessings or tribulations, we still thank and praise God for His faithfulness, grace, and mercy to us. We are not thanking Him for the trials and tribulations, we are thanking Him in spite of them. This pleases the Lord because this shows we trust Him no matter what we are going through here on earth.

Heavenly Father, so often we fail to continue offering you the praise that belongs to you because we are too focused with worry about the things going on that trouble us. Forgive us, Lord, and by your grace, open up our floodgates of praise so that we will always be thankful and give honor to you no matter what we are going through. In Jesus' name, Amen.
