Something to be Thankful for this Thanksgiving

Over the last few weeks, we’ve studied that we are free from the demands of the written code because of Christ. He has given us a new Way and through Him, we can do some amazing things together. I tell you what that is something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!

We’ve also studied that the purpose of the law is to tell us how to live. It reveals right from wrong and initiates proper thoughts and self-discipline as we step ahead. We have a better Way to live our lives and faith that things will fall in place so we get further than ever imagined.

Pointed out was that there is an internal spiritual war inside our soul between good and evil but through Jesus Christ we can be optimistic because the law of God has the advantage. Something amazing is available to us today! With Christ, there are no limits to what we can accomplish.

Within each believer is the same Spiritual power that raised Christ from the dead. A Spiritual power big enough to function at a much higher level that brings joy and freedom. Much more than worldly power, prestige, or possessions. It’s so big that we should desire to share with the world.

Each day, let us think about the things of God and spend time nourishing the Spirit inside. Then our actions will match up to what God wants us to do with our life. Let us not get uptight about things but enjoy each moment, let go of worry, and trust that everything will work out by just doing God’s will.

This world is not perfect and there will be difficulty but even in hard times, we can have joy. Never get down but remember what Jesus went through on the Cross. Remember the many things people have gone through but came out stronger on the other side.

Hope is a major part of the Christian life because it gives patience in time of difficulty. For regardless of circumstance, hope keeps us looking forward to a day when there is no more pain, no more tears, and no more fears.

The Spirit gives insight into how to play our part in a preferred future and gives plans to make a difference in society. First, let us pray for God’s will. Then let us discover the purpose for which God has for each of us and respond with enthusiasm to fulfill that high purpose.

The Spirit will work in our life if we discover our purpose for which God has for us and respond with enthusiasm to fulfill that purpose. As Christians, we can defeat things that bring us down like fear, ridicule, lack of health, or even death. For faith in God’s resources, hope for a bright future, and the love of God that is in Christ leads us to victory. 

Our confidence for victory over problems and obstacles that cause despair and suffering stems from the fact that those who accept Christ as Savior are adopted as His children and led by the Spirit. We are co-heirs with Christ who share difficulties in order that we may also share in His glory. This hope will keep us looking forward to the ultimate victory.
