1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (KJV) Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing.
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
I remember spending some time with a servant of God who walks in great power and who I truly admire. I couldn’t help but observe how light and joyful the atmosphere around him was. I never saw him complaining or being heavy. He was so full of joy, peace, and thanksgiving. No wonder the Lord could use him so mightily.
What we have in today’s Bible verses are instructions not suggestions or counsel. Any believer who wants to understand and walk in the will of God must learn to be full of joy, thanksgiving: and prayers.
People who are negative and full of complaints cannot rejoice evermore. An atmosphere of complaining and heaviness does not engender prayer and fellowship with the Lord. It engenders weakness because the joy of the Lord is our strength.
We see in today’s scripture that we are to give thanks in everything. For the believer in Christ Jesus, there is always a reason to give thanks. That we have been blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places, and we are heirs of God’s eternal kingdom through grace, are everlasting thanksgiving inspiring truths we must never forget. The more we focus on the good and are full of thanksgiving and joy, we would be full of strength and testimonies.
A believer who is always thankful is a believer who prays without ceasing because thanksgiving in itself is a kind of prayer and a catalyst for other kinds of prayers.
Go into today determined to be more joyful, more sober and prayerful, and full of thanksgiving because this is the will of God for you.
Prayer: Lord, give me the grace to pray without ceasing by being ever thankful and full of Joy. Help me realize that my fellowship with you is the best thing in this world. Amen.
