Today marks the fourth week of the Open My Eyes Thanksgiving and Gratefulness Scripture Challenge. I’ve learned how to interpret the Bible and apply its ideas and teachings into my everyday life, and to be thankful for everything that I have. I’ll be posting this in the same format as the past 3 weeks of this challenge. Consider implementing prayer into your life to enrich your happy and healthy adventure. 😊❤️
1 Corinthians 1:2-5
We have all been called by God to be holy, or at least act in a holy way that God would want. He also imparted us with grace, knowledge, and discourse (a pathway) to live our lives accordingly. We should be thankful for all of these things.
1 Thessalonians 2:12-13
God brought each and every one of us upon this Earth to serve a purpose in His kingdom. Also, the word is truly of God, and to gain as much as possible from it, you must believe. Believe that you have a purpose on this planet (even though it may be hard sometimes) and take the teachings of God to heart.
We should give thanks to the relationship between Jesus and the Bible, and always remember the goodness of his word. We should say prayers of Gratefulness, not just ones of asking for help.
When we pray, we should always remember to pray to God to help us and thank Him for what He has given us, not just pray in vain or not acknowledge God in our prayers. Be thankful that we have Him to pray to and watch over us.
We will all experience bouts of misery and pain; it’s inevitable. But if we pray to God and believe He can help, then He shall do so. Praying to the Lord is the greatest act in His eyes; be thankful for the ability to pray and to have someone that can take away your misery and pain in time.
If we allow God into our lives and truly believe in His goodness, then we will be comforted by His presence, joy and gladness in every situation in life, and be able to thank Him for everything we have through prayer. God teaches and does not judge, we should be grateful for that.
When you are down in life, God will lift you from it if you remember to pray truthfully to him.
