|I believe we can all agree that life offers us many opportunities to complain, but how many times does
it make room for worship? Many times!
Whether times are good or bad, there is always a reason to give God praise. If you’re struggling to
find some, here 7 reasons why you should offer thanksgiving.1. Hebrews 13:15 (NIV)- “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise–the fruit of lips that openly profess his name.” Through Christ, the Sacrificial Lamb, we are able to approach God with the sacrifice of praise. Don’t take this for granted. Praise Him for the access you have through Christ. 2. Psalm 7:17 (NIV)- “I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness; I will sing the praises of the name of the LORD Most High.” Give glory to God in all circumstances, because He is holy and deserving of the praise. 3. Habakkuk 3:17-18 (NIV)- “Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD; I will take joy in the God of my salvation.” Habakkuk had more to complain about than anyone, yet he still chose to give God praise. When your situation offers you a million reasons to be bitter or upset, worship the Lord regardless, just for who He is.
