"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."(1 Thessolonians 5:18)
"In everything give thanks". It will require a disciplined spirit be able to give thanks "in" everything! Apostle Paul doesn't tell us it's God's will to give thanks FOR everything but "in" everything. So it's "the will of God for us to give thanks in everything". Do you want to be in God's will? When you have a thankful heart to God regardless of your circumstances it will OPEN the GATES OF GOD, the portals of Heaven!! We enter into His Gates by thanksgiving!!! "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name."(Psalm 100:4) TODAY WE GIVE THANKS UNTO OUR GOD AND HIS GATES OPEN WIDE POURING OUT MERCY FROM HIS THRONE!!!!
