Restoring a Thankful Heart


With the American Thanksgiving holiday coming up next week, we thought this would be a great time to talk about gratitude. We love our Thanksgiving tradition , but the heart behind it is really taking time to be grateful and to express our thanksgiving to the Lord.

Have you ever considered that gratitude is a profound response to God's love and goodness? Join us as  Neal and Jacqueline reflect on significant experiences of giving thanks. Neal mentions  1 Thessalonians 5, highlighting that it is God's will we express thanks in all circumstances.

Neal and Jacqueline touch on several other scriptural passages:

 Psalm 136:1-3
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods.
His love endures forever.
 Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
His love endures forever.

Give thanks in all circumstances. It's at the heart of our personal relationship with Him.

Neal then offers suggestions for ways that we can grow in that act, in that discipline of giving thanks.

Psalm 50: 23
The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me; to one who orders His way rightly I will show the salvation of God!

Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

God's word makes it super clear that a thanksful heart is a heart that pleases Him.

Listen today and have your thankful heart restored.
