GIVE HIM THANKS!
We always pray, and give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Whatever we do, it should always be done with a thankful heart. Every day we should give God thanks for all of His rich and generous blessings. Thank Him for the gift of salvation. Thank Him for the gift of family and friends. The list of things that we can thank God for is numerous. Thank Him just for the opportunity to be part of His family! Thank him for being such a faithful God. In fact, before you read any more of this devotion, take the time now to give Him thanks! Don’t let a day go by without thanking Him. In Galatians 1:3, we find these words:
“May God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.”
Here, in this moving chapter, Paul, the humble servant of the Lord, is writing to God’s people. He knows that they are faithful in the Lord, and he prays that God will give them peace. His prayer is a prayer of Thanksgiving. Paul knows first-hand that his brothers and sisters have been faithful, and he prays that they will be strengthened by the power of God. He thanks God for each one of them. He cannot stop giving God thanks for their love and devotion. Prayerfully, we will all remember to give thanks to God each day for His many blessings, just like Paul.
