Eph 5:19-20 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father;

1Thes 5:16 Rejoice always 17 pray without ceasing; 18 in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Real gratitude, thanksgiving for even the minor blessings in life only comes when we realize how much God has truly forgiven us and how His grace goes beyond human abundance.

Psa 100:3 Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

2Cor 4:15 For all things are for your sakes, so that the grace which is spreading to more and more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to the glory of God.

2Cor 9:10 Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness;

2Cor 9:11 you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God.

2Cor 9:12 For the ministry of this service is not only fully supplying the needs of the saints, but is also overflowing through many thanksgivings to God.

Rom1:8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, because your faith is being proclaimed throughout the whole world.

2Tim 1:3 I thank God, whom I serve with a clear conscience the way my forefathers did, as I constantly remember you in my prayers night and day,

Joh 11:37 But some of them said, “Could not this man, who opened the eyes of the blind man, have kept this man also from dying?”

Human viewpoint never has a clear view of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Joh 11:41 So they removed the stone. Then Jesus raised His eyes, and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.

In His humanity, Jesus Christ was displaying a grateful heart & powerful faith…BEFORE Lazarus was raised!

Col 2:6-7 Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed,

and overflowing with gratitude.

Col 1:10 so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and

increasing in the knowledge of God;

Col 1:11-12 strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously.

Col 1:12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.

2Cor 9:15 Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
