Thanksgiving Service Message

God placed a message upon my heart on being "Truly Thankful". Our happiness and joy in our lives does not come from circumstances or possessions, but rather from the relationship we have with Jesus. There are 3 points we must understand if we are going to have a life of being "Truly Thankful"

1. God is in Control - Habakkuk 3:17-19

If all your material things were gone, would God still receive your praise and thanksgiving? True thanksgiving is realizing God is in control at all times and in all things! Paul stressed this point to the church in Romans 8:28.

2. God is Our Strength - I Corinthians 1:25

God is our perfect wisdom and perfect strength in our daily lives. Trials can be God's way to triumph! Trials are God's way to prepare us for our next promotion. Read what Paul had to say in II Corinthians 12:9-10.

3. God is Our Eternal Hope - II Corinthians 4:7-9, 17-18

Praise God He is our eternal hope and the keeper of our salvation. Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Jesus made us an amazing promise in John 14:2-3.

So remember to live a "Truly Thankful" life: We must realize God is in control; God is our source of strength; and God is our eternal hope. A quote from Our Daily Bread says, "The joy of living comes from a heart of thanksgiving!" A Christian's thanksgiving day should be 365 days a year!
