1Th 5:18 In every thing give thanks. Always be thankful for God's benefits, and always express your thanks. For scriptural examples, see Ac 27:35 2Co 1:11 Act 28:15 Eph 5:20. This is the will of God. The three duties just named are probably comprehended (1Th 5:16,17).

give in every season good or bad rich or poor happy or sad because it is the will of GOD concerning you

In giving thanks, we remind ourselves that God is in control and that he has a purpose in whatever circumstance we find ourselves. Knowing that He has a purpose, we are reminded to seek His purpose and our place in within it. Giving thanks is the first step in yielding to the will of God.

I have found that in my deepest trials the outcomes always brought forth tremendously fulfilling fruit. The hard part was the disappointing strife.
