”…”giving thanks always, for all things…” [Ephesians 5:20]
Faith gives thanks in ALL things in ALL ways—thankfulness maintains faith and increases faith through thanksgiving!
No situation or circumstance is unredeemable when the attitude of the heart is one of faith grounded in thanksgiving because “…we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” [Romans 8:28]
The devotional book ‘Springs in the Valley’ tells of a man who found a barn where Satan kept his seeds ready to be sown in the human heart. He found that the seeds of discouragement were more numerous than the others and he learned that those seeds could be made to grow almost anywhere. But when Satan was questioned, he reluctantly admitted that there was one place in which he could never get them to thrive. “And where is that?” asked the man. Satan replied sadly, “In the heart of a grateful person.” [Mrs. Charles E. Cowan]
When faith clasps the hand of thankfulness it multiplies blessings, especially in the midst of confusing circumstances and rocky relationships. Responding in faith wipes out fear, frustration, failure, and fastens our faith securely to the Rock of our Salvation—that relationship is never rocky but always faithful.
