One of the best feelings you will have is having peace in your life. The way to get peace is trusting in God & avoiding negativity in your life. God wants peace for us all, but you can’t have it by depending only on ourselves & others. Peace comes from God. Strive for peace my friends.

Psalm 4:8 In peace I will lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Romans 14:19 So then let us pursue what makes for peace & mutual upbuilding.

Have a peaceful year my friends!!!

Give Thanks to the Lord…

Leviticus 7:12 If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the thanksgiving sacrifice unleavened loaves mixed with oil, unleavened wafers smeared with oil, and loaves of fine flour well mixed with oil.

This is the first time the word “thanksgiving” is used in the Bible. “Thanksgiving” is mentioned before “thanks”. Thanksgiving is the Hebrew word todah. The issue is an attitude of the heart.

Psalms 107:1 Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

This is the Hebrew word yadah. It means to throw or cast. So throw it to the Lord. Laud and praise.

1 Timothy 4:3-4 who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving

In the New Testament, the Greek word is εὐχαριστία/eucharistia. Translated literally, it is the giving of thanks for God’s grace or good grace. The word means: thankfulness or gratitude.

It is the perfect word for the verses out of 1 Timothy 4. Get the legalism and all the rules out of your life. Invite God’s grace. Be thankful for what God has provided and respond with a heart of gratitude.

The point is…God is the source. And that needs to be recognized.

Romans 14:6 He who observes the day, observes it for the Lord, and he who eats, does so for the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he who eats not, for the Lord he does not eat, and gives thanks to God.

May this Thanksgiving find you, your family, and friends with many blessings.
