Thanksgiving is the remedy for sadness, discontentment, complaints and for when things are bad. It shifts your focus from the trouble at hand and places it on the solution provider. Instead of being focused on the problems at hand, King David never ceased from giving thanks to God who delivered him, forgave his sins and gave him victory over his enemies. It is good for you to give thanks to God for all he has done for you also.
Give thanks to God in the highest who controls the affairs of man on earth. He sees all things and he knows all things. He created all things and he is above all beings.

Whichever one of those answers you may have received in recent years are answers and they are worth giving thanks to God for them. Continue reading “Give Thanks to God for Answered Prayers”
