Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, and His blessings never cease!

Psalm 34:8

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!”

James 1:17

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.”

The good Lord blesses us each and every day.  He gives us life and provides us with all of our needs.

Trust in the Lord, have faith in Him, and you will surely be blessed.

Psalm 34:10

The young lions lack and suffer hunger;
But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.

Even during times of adversity, the Lord is good, He hears our cries and delivers us from all of our troubles.

Psalm 34:17

The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,
And delivers them out of all their troubles.”

God is so good that He even blesses unbelievers!

Matthew 5:44-45

But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”

God gives life to both believers and unbelievers, He gives them food, water, shelter, and even health, all good things come from the Lord!

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

We are to give thanks in everything, that doesn’t mean that we give thanks for bad situations, but we give thanks while we are in bad situations.  God is good, He is always good, and there is always something to give Him thanks for.  Sometimes the Lord uses our bad situations in order to draw us closer to Himself, in that we should also give thanks, even though we may not like it.

Jesus Christ created all things, and all things are held together by Him, He is the creator and giver of life, He is life!

There is always something to thank the Lord for, but the most important thing is our eternal salvation!

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!  Looking up!!!
