1 Thessalonians 5:18 – In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Jesus Christ concerning you.”

Ephesians 5:20 – “Giving thanks always for all men to God the Father in the name of our LORD Jesus Christ.”

Colossians 3:17 – “And whatever you do in word or deed, do it in the name of our LORD Jesus Christ, giving thanks through him to God the Father.”

Now, shall we move to the second thing on my list of what we have to be thankful for? 


We must never forget that the Word of God, the Bible is loaded with benefits, provisions, instructions, protections, and privileges that equip each believer for life.  Tragically, too often we allow ourselves to be robbed of what the Father has already provided for us.

Psalm 103:1-5 – “BLESS the LORD, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name.2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits,3 Who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases.4 Who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagles.”

God’s Word provides for life here and hereafter.  It is not just a Word it is the Inspired Word of God.  It is God-breathed.  It is as good as God Himself.

2 Timothy 3:16 –All scripture, written by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction and for instruction in righteousness”

2 Peter 1:21 – “For the prophecy did not come by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke when they were inspired by the Holy Spirit.”

It is the Infallible Word of God as Hebrews 13:8 declares, Jesus is the same eternally and Jesus is the Word!  It is the Indestructible Word of God.  In Matthew 24:35 we read, “Even heaven and earth will pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”  In Isaiah 40:8 we are advised, “Even heaven and earth will pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” Then in 1 Peter 1:25 we find, “But the word of our God endures forever. And this is the very word which has been preached to you.”    It is Infallible and Indestructible. 

We must also remember that it is Indispensable.  It is as vital to our spirit man as food is to the natural body.  Through the pages of God’s Word, we find provision for Salvation, Healing, Deliverance, Blessing, Guidance, and Protection.  We are to “Forget None of His Benefits.”  We should be thankful for such a word that has been provided for us.


I am going to possibly overload you with scripture to prove my point so get ready.

John 14:1-3 – “LET not your heart be troubled; believe in God, and believe in me also.2 In my Father’s house there are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you.3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and take you to me, so that where I am, you may be also.”

1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 – “For our LORD himself shall descend from heaven with a shout and the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God, and those who died in Christ will rise first.17 Then we, who are alive, and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet our LORD in the air: and so shall we ever be with our LORD.18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”

1 Corinthians 15:51:52 – “Behold, I tell you a mystery; We shall not all die, but we shall all be changed,52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

Philippians 3:20-21 – “But our labors are in heavenly things, from whence we look for our Savior, our LORD Jesus Christ,21 Who shall transform our poor body, to the likeness of his glorious body, according to his mighty power, whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.”

This Promise is to those who are Born Again.  This Promise is to those who are Faithful.  The Blessed Hope is something to be incredibly Thankful for. We are not left comfortless, abandoned as orphans, but He is Coming Back!

Regardless of how the economy is, God is still God.

Regardless of how vile and sinful mankind may become, God is still God.

Regardless of the situation of the world, God is still God.

We have Hope in Christ!

We have much to be thankful for and more than we will ever thank Him for.  He brought Salvation to us because He Loves us.  He has given us His Word, to guide us.  He is coming back for us so that we can spend Eternity with Him. 

What Have We To Be Thankful For?  EVERYTHING!

God bless you as you enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend.  Have a Great Day!
