    *GIVE THANKS IN EVERY SITUATION*

    _It is advisable you read the text first_

    📜TEXT:1 THESSALONIANS 5:12-28📜

    1 Thessalonians 5:12-28

    [12]And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;

    [13]And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves.

    [14]Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.

    [15]See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.

    [16]Rejoice evermore.

    [17]Pray without ceasing.

    [18]In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

    [19]Quench not the Spirit.

    [20]Despise not prophesyings.

    [21]Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

    [22]Abstain from all appearance of evil.

    [23]And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    [24]Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

    [25]Brethren, pray for us.

    [26]Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.

    [27]I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.

    [28]The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen. (The first epistle to the Thessalonians was written from Athens.)

    🔑📖KEY VERSE: _*”In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 THESSALONIANS 5:18).*_

    _”Praise, One of the Chief Employment of Heaven”_ was a sermon delivered by Jonathan Edwards on _Thanksgiving Day_ on November 7, 1734, taking his text from the book of Revelation chapter fourteen verse two. He preached on the need to praise God even while on earth.

    Our text today is a final benediction from Apostle Paul to the Thessalonian church. He instructed them to give thanks to God in everything because it is Christ’s will for all believers. They were also commanded to rejoice always as they abstain from all appearances of evil.

    It is natural to thank and praise God when something good happens or when everything is rosy. But it takes real sacrifice to offer praise and thanksgiving when you have a tough challenge. There are times when we feel weary or it appears God is far or does not really care about our present predicament. During such circumstances, we must still praise Him. Praise and giving of thanks attract God’s presence and pave the way for His power to manifest in our lives.

    Just like the nine ungrateful lepers, some Christians sometimes get so caught up in the euphoria of their breakthrough, miracle or healing, that they forget to appreciate God and give Him praise. Irrespective of what you have experienced this year, give thanks to God. The songwriter, Linda Randle puts it thus:

    _”The God on the mountain, is still God in the valley;_

    _When things go wrong, He’ll make them right;_

    _And the God of the good times is still God in the bad times,_

    _The God of the day is still God in the night.”_

    Give thanks; He will surely pull you through your trying moments.

    ✍🏽THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: _*Give thanks to God always.*_

    📜THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: *2 KINGS 7-8*📜

    *MEDITATION*

    *Important Christians precepts and practice*

    1. Do you esteem your labouring ministers highly? How can you do that better?, vv12,13.

    2. Are you at peace among yourselves in the fellowship? If not, what is your plan in order to obey this precept?, v13b.

    3. Eight important injunctions are given in vv14,15. What are they? Which is the one you need to improve on? Note it please.

    4. Two things must be done every time without being tired. What are they? vv16,17. Are you compliant? If not, start it today.

    5. What is the will of God for your life in v18?

    6. You must avoid some mistakes mentioned in vv19,20. What are they and how do they apply to you?

    7. Check vv21-25. Which of the precepts really catch your attention that you need to address in your life?

    *Prayer points*

    Ask God to help you to address any of the precepts that you are found wanting?🙏

    Promise God to start giving thanks always even when it is not convenient and ask for a grateful heart🙏

    Pray for grace to be a truly practising christian🙏

    Ask for the Spirit of thanksgiving to be poured on all members in your church against all the spirits of murmurings and complainings🙏

    *HYMN* Rejoice in the Lord
