Paul admonished the Ephesians (and us) to be thankful no matter the circumstances.
How can that be? The depth of your thankgiving is related to the depth of your trust. Because when you really believe God is working, even when it doesn’t seem as if He is, you can be thankful. That’s important, because thankfulness cultivates your heart to receive from God spiritual blessings that don’t just impact things today, but go way beyond it into the life He has called you to live.
