I'm very thankful for the Bible Study we had on Tuesday evening. It was about Joseph while he was in prison after Potiphar's wife lied on him. We were reminded that God was with Joseph through all of that time (when he was sold in slavery twice and then thrown in prison). God didn't remove him from those things, but He was with him and He was kind to him. He let all that Joseph did prosper. We were challenged to look for the times in our life that we see God's kindness. I think that kind of goes along with these Thankful Thursday posts and looking for things to be thankful for.
Then on Wednesday I was listening to a sermon by Priscilla Shirer from several years ago and she was talking about the children of Israel at the Red Sea and how Moses told them to stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. She said there are four things Moses told them to do.
1. Do not be afraid.
2. Stand still. (let God take control and do what He will do.)
3. Be watchful. (see the salvation of the Lord)
4. Be silent. (The Lord will fight for you)
If we are not afraid and we stand still and watch and be silent, we too will see the moving of God in our lives.
So I am very thankful for the access we have to the truths of God through the Bible and through those who lead these studies.
So what are you thankful for?
