1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”
It’s not easy to always be joyful or thankful. But when when you belong to Christ, you can always find a reason to be joyful and thankful even in challenging times. That’s why it says to never stop praying. To pray doesn’t always mean to speak to God, it is about your heart constantly staying attuned to His. It is His will for you to stay connected to Him because He wants to communicate with you, to guide you, to give instruction, to give another perspective, to comfort, to warn, to give insight, to bring healing and prosperity to your soul… so many countless reasons! These are some of the benefits of belonging to Christ Jesus, your Savior, your Lord.
“Abba, no matter what circumstances I may find myself in, You are always there. You will never leave me alone.Thank You for Jesus Who was willing to suffer so much just so that I can be restored to You, and for Your Holy Spirit, continually transforming me, to Your glory, in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
