Ephesians 5:20–Always give thanks for EVERYTHING! Not just the good things. God has a plan for each of us and when He’s done he’ll take us home. When you become a Christian life gets really hard. The enemy wants to steal, kill, and destroy and take you apart. God takes the destroyed and builds them up even stronger and better. Ephesians 4:17-24 Until you give thanks for everything, you’re going to blame God for everything. If God is a loving God why would He let something happen to you? God doesn’t pour you alcohol and tell you to drive around…that’s you..something bad happens cause it’s your own choice. If we believe in Him instead of blaming Him in those situations..give Him thanks because in All things God works together for the good of those who love Him.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. God loves you no matter what…He might not like your actions…and there may be consequences, but not because He doesn’t love you. He loves us but that doesn’t mean He doesn’t let us make mistakes or doesn’t discipline us. Giving thanks changes your focus. When you become a new creation and bury yourself with Jesus Christ, the only way you’re going to be that again, is if you go find it, and dig it back up. Know there’s nothing God can’t fix and trust Him! Our foundation has to be Jesus and we have to allow Him to make us who we need to be; let it be all about Him and let Him be in charge. Psalm127:1 If God isn’t in charge, if God’s not leading you, you’re building and working in vain. If you’re leaning on God and things in your life start to shake, you will not fall, the foundation will not fail. We can’t fight the war against the evil principalities, but God can. He must be your foundation and your life.
