Honor God on This Thanksgiving Day
Philippians 4:6 (KJB) Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
America, by custom, celebrates Thanksgiving in the Fall of each year. It is a familiar tradition in many households gathering with family to feast on roast a turkey, bread stuffing, cranberry salad, mashed potatoes and such on this special day.
We might choose to reminisce about what has been imparted to us about early pilgrims who crossed the ocean and landed in America and to celebrate this special day with a feast of food just like the early pilgrims did with a harvest grown on the land and in roasting turkeys hunted in the field.
Whatever traditions you and your family choose to celebrate on this holiday, one thing is sure, every day is meant to be a time for giving thanks. Especially pointing to God (rather than to mankind and things), remembering God’s goodness, grace, and necessary help in times of trouble, comfort in our grief, for God remains a bright hope as we stand in the midst of great darkness at work in this world.
In whatever you do today, I hope you celebrate and give thanks to God and His Son Jesus Christ foremost. That you trust in the finished work of Calvary, choosing to honor God and being thankful for His providence above all other things.
