“give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” I Thessalonians 5:18 (NIV)
I believe when I do this, there is a benefit on the other side—perhaps material, but for sure spiritual. I am obeying God, and obedience always brings blessing.
If I can give thanks to God in the circumstance, it hasn’t overpowered me, and it won’t, because I am giving it to God. God has the answer figured out; I just need to trust Him for it.
