give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. – 1 Thessalonians 5:18

If we want to know the will of God for our lives here is one clue: Give thanks in all circumstances. One might say, “How could I give thanks? You don’t know my circumstances. I have absolutely no reason to give thanks for what happened to me.” But in not giving thanks we relegate ourselves to the tyranny of a broken and fallen world. The Bible speaks of a fallen creation that needs rescue. Giving thanks reminds us and aligns us with God’s rescue plan for our lives.
