The Dynamic Duo; A Thanksgiving Devotion

Hello Friends! Happy Thanksgiving! We are happy to share this special, timely message from Roy Lessin to encourage us through this Thanksgiving Day.

May you be healthy, and may you feel the presence of the Lord with you today, as we give thanks to Him.

The Dynamic Duo; A Thanksgiving Devotion
-Roy Lessin

There are two words found in a scripture passage about prayer that can make a powerful impact upon your life. 

The scripture is Philippians 4:6-7

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

The two words that make a dynamic duo are thanksgiving and peace.

Thanksgiving is something you speak to God in prayer, and peace is something God gives in answer to your prayer.

Think of it as receiving two answers to your prayer. Peace is the first answer. It is an immediate answer. 

The second answer is related to your specific request. This answer will come in agreement with God’s timetable. His perfect wisdom determines the right timing. What better way to wait on the Lord’s answer and timing than with a heart at rest and a mind at peace.

And what do you do as you wait? Thank Him!

Thank Him for His peace that keeps your heart and mind from becoming anxious, impatient, worried, or fearful. Thank Him for His wisdom that is providing the answer that is without flaw and will most glorify Him. Thank Him you can pray. Thank Him that He cares. And thank Him that you can, at all times, fully put your trust in Him.
