Grateful Thanksgiving

Re: Verse reading–Revelation 21:1-8; 22:1-7, 16-17 (day four)

Revelation has given us a glimpse of the future.  For the unbeliever, it is a grim and foreboding future…justice will be swift and complete.  For the believer, it is a future of hope and promise… a future of fulfilled promises and eternal peace.  But do we have to wait until the end before we can participate in and enjoy the fruit of righteousness?  The answer is no!

Today is Thanksgiving Day…a day set aside to give thanks to God for His many blessings.  Many in our nation today do not recognize or celebrate God’s goodness and provision.  Thanksgiving Day is just a day to eat lots of food and prepare for Black Friday.  Does your family reflect on the bountiful provision God has given you?  It may not be material provision… but look at the blessings of faith…the blessings of answered prayer…the blessings of fulfilled promises (Revelation!)…the blessings of family.  Pause this day to thank the Father…the Alpha and the Omega!
