1 Thessalonians 5:16-18New International Version (NIV)
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
For my daily devotion, I use Sweet Blessings Scripture Writing Text. It’s great! She provides a passage of scripture that you write out and you can meditate on it, write out your thoughts, etc. This year she has been creating theme-based options for each month.
This month the topic is prayer. Something I need to do more of. As I read yesterday’s passage, the one above, I had to smile. How often had I heard (and said, even to myself) “What is God’s will for my life?” This passage gives us a good start on what it is.
- Rejoice always – not just when I feel like it. ALWAYS.
- Pray continually – If I’m praying I can’t be complaining!
- Give Thanks in ALL circumstance – hmmm… not just for the good things in life but the bad ones as well.
Maybe not the answer to all life’s questions, but a great place to start.
