Why not thank God for all things, good or bad? Let’s remember that God is always in control of all things.
He is perfect and everything He has done is perfect, let us give thanks for this enormous work that our God has done in our lives. God loved us and has loved us so much that He gave up His son out of love for us and we cannot forget this fact.
This is not the time to complain about the life that we have to live, let’s just look at God and give Him thanks for all things, for the times, for the difficulties, for the problems that affect us every day in our daily life.
The Bible shows us and talks about the will of God, why we should thank God for everything:
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV)
The first thing we see mentioned here is about the will of God, but we cannot forget that the author is talking about the people having to prepare for that great day of the Lord’s coming.
The verse we just saw tells us to thank God in everything, so we must put this into practice, not only give thanks for the good things, but also give thanks for the bad things that happen to us.
Let us remember something very important, our joy comes from the Lord, let us be firm and joyful in the Lord. So, let us give thanks for everything, for the good and for the bad, give glory for the mighty works of the Lord.
