Joel Osteen (November-25-2021) Today's Word: A Time to Give Thanks
Today's Scripture: Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Psalm 118:1, NKJV
Today is a special day for you to give thanks to God for the good things He has done in our land, in our lives, and in the lives of our family members. When you take the time to pause and remember, you can see those times in your life when God brought you victory, brought you success. When you remember what God has said and give thanks to God for who He is and all that He has done, it will transform your life.
And let us remember that thanksgiving is an attitude of our heart. Living with an attitude of gratitude means you don’t just thank God for what He did in the past, you also thank Him for what He will do in the future. You thank Him for opening new doors, for increasing you, and for bringing the right people into your life. When we thank God in advance, that’s really a declaration of faith. Live every day with an attitude of gratitude and thanksgiving.
Prayer for Today: “Father, thank You that I can come to You with a heart full of thanksgiving. I have so much to be grateful for because of Your goodness. You are good, and Your mercy endures forever! Thank You for doing exceedingly abundantly above all I could ever ask or imagine. In Jesus’ Name, Amen."
