How to Get a True Thanksgiving Blessing

Fall BlessingsMany people love Thanksgiving. It’s a special time to gather with family and friends, share a delicious meal, watch parades and football, and take an afternoon nap. Thanksgiving is also the perfect time to acknowledge God’s presence in our lives and thank Him for the countless blessings He gives to us.

Notice these Thanksgiving Thoughts
When George Washington issued the first presidential Thanksgiving Proclamation, he said: “It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefit, and humbly to implore His protection.”
The great evangelist, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, said, “You say, ‘if I had a little more, I should be very satisfied.’ You make a mistake. If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled.”
Notice these Thanksgiving Scriptures
Psalm 100 reads, “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.”
Philippians 4:4-7 reads, “Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Notice these Thanksgiving Blessings
Numbers 6:24-26 reads, “The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.”
Ephesians 1:2 reads, “Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Thanksgiving In Jesus Christ
Thanksgiving is not just about being thankful. Thanksgiving is about being thankful to God in Jesus Christ. This holiday ask yourself, “Am I really thankful to God, or just thankful?”
Of all the things God has provided, the greatest is His gift of salvation — total forgiveness of sins (past, present, and future) and eternal life. But like any gift, you have to accept it or it’s not yours — believe that it’s for you. The Bible says in Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
If you want to accept God’s free gift of salvation and be certain about your eternity, then pray this simple prayer:
Father God, I know I am separated from You because of my sin. I ask for Your forgiveness. Thank You for sending Your only Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross and rise from the dead to completely take away my sins. I trust in Jesus Christ as my Saviour and Lord. Thank You for Your free gift of salvation and eternal life. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen!
Remember, friend, Believe by faith. Share the faith. and Keep the faith!
