Sabbath 11/28/15 Daytona SDB Church Minister Owen sermon “Give Thanks” I Thess. 5:12-18

Even in times of turmoil we should give thanks. There are different types of thanks, sincere and un-sincere thanks that we can give. The Bible scriptures say that in EVERYTHING give thanks to God. Stop to think and thank God for his generosity and the joy He gives us. God wants us to give thanks always!

Abraham had reason to give thanks to God. When he offered his son Isaac for a sacrifice, God said no and gave him a ram instead to sacrifice. Isaac was a teenager and God spared him by providing a substitute sacrifice, a way out. Abraham and Isaac were both thankful to God for coming right on time!

Moses had reason to give thanks to God always. Moses told the Israelites about the wealth of their promised land. He told them not to forget God who had brought them out of Egypt. Instead, the Israelites complained about all things that they were going thru in the wilderness. Moses had to get 2 million people fed everyday and he needed tons and tons of food to feed them each day. Moses was thankful to God for providing the manna. The manna was the food God provided each morning for them to eat. God took care of their needs.

God took care of their needs so therefore God knows how to take care of us too. Don’t think our problems are too big for Him to handle. God is in command and our Lord Jesus will come to help us during our times of need. Our Lord Jesus has come and set us free. Praise His Holy Name.
