1 Thessalonians 5:18

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

"In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." KJV

We are not told to give thanks for all things. We are told to give thanks in all things. We are giving thanks to our Lord no matter what circumstance surrounds us because He is right there with us. If the situation is good, we thank Him for His blessing and rejoice in the blessing. If we are in very difficult times, we thank Him that He is going through the storm with us and that He is working in us spiritual maturity, faith, and peace. We thank Him because He is working all things out for our good and His glory.

Heavenly Father, forgive us when we complain and become overwhelmed during trials and difficult circumstances. We ask that Your Holy Spirit would bring to our minds that You are with us and we can give thanks to You for the mighty work You are doing through our struggles. We pray this in Jesus' name, Amen.
