I am the greatest Gift imaginable! When you have Me, you have everything you need—for this life and the next. I have promised to meet all your needs according to My glorious riches. Yet My loved ones sometimes fail to enjoy the riches I provide because of an ungrateful attitude. Instead of rejoicing in all that they have, they long for what they do not have. As a result, they become discontented.
I’m training you to practice the sacrifice of thanksgiving—thanking Me in all circumstances. First, give thanks for the blessings you can see in your life. Then stop and ponder the awesome gift of knowing Me. I am your living God, your loving Savior, your constant Companion. No matter how much or how little you have in this world, your relationship with Me makes you immeasurably rich. So whenever you are counting your blessings, be sure to include the infinite wealth you have in Me. Add Me into the equation, and your gratitude will grow exponentially. Whatever you have + Me = an incalculable fortune!
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 4:19
I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord.
~ Psalm 116:17 [NKJV]
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
~ 1 Thessalonians 5:18
