SCRIPTURE TEXT: “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18
You do not grieve the Holy Spirit by taking a look over your past life. In fact, the Holy Spirit may take you back through your unregenerated days so that you may remember from where He took you, remember what you are, and remember He did it all. When the Holy Spirit begins to take you for a walk back, do not start to say it is a temptation of the devil. It is a grand thing when the Holy Spirit takes a person for a walk down his unregenerated days. It will make the believer rejoice and understand that Jesus not only did it all, but is all.
Rejoice in everything if you are His child—no matter where you find yourself, no matter what your circumstances are, no matter what tribulations come. You can give thanks in all things because He remains the same. Nothing alters Him
PRAYER THOUGHT: “Knowing that You change not, Lord, I rejoice in everything You permit me to experience today.”Amen.
