“give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV).
It’s easy to look at that verse and think of some of the worst circumstances you’ve faced or are in right now, and think, “HOW?!” But, take a close look at the first part of the verse: It says “in” all circumstances, not “for” all of them. The Lord wants you and me to express thanks to Him in the midst of whatever we’re dealing with, whether it’s a joy or a struggle, a pleasure or a pain. The act of thanking Him turns our focus off of ourselves and onto the One who takes care of us no matter what.

“For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139:13-14 NIV).
Because of the intricate detail and delicate care that our Father has invested in creating each one of us, no two people are alike. You and I are each unique. His craftsmanship in making us has resulted in someone whom He considers “wonderful” just because we’re His handiwork.
May your heart and mind be encouraged through a growing knowledge of just how wonderful you are in our Father’s sight.
