Daily Bible Nugget #824, 1 Thessalonians 5:18


The Nugget:

1 Thessalonians 5:18  In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

My Comment:

I have been reading a book newly added to my Logos library:

Eggerichs, Emerson. 2018. The 4 Wills of God: The Way He Directs Our Steps and Frees Us to Direct Our Own. Nashville, TN: B&H Books.

Giving thanks in all things is one of the four wills of God for us detailed in the New Testament. Sometimes giving thanks for all things is a very “tall order” as a spiritual discipline, but the author makes a good case for doing this.

Here is a verse which connects praise with thanksgiving:

Heb 13:15  By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

From Ken Sagely’s Facebook Post:


PSALM 13.5
But I have trusted in Thy mercy;

my heart shall rejoice in Thy salvation.

PSALM 71.8
Let my mouth be filled with Thy praise

and with Thy honour all the day.

PSALM 71.14-15
But I will hope continually, and will yet praise
Thee more and more.
15 My mouth shall show forth Thy righteousness
and Thy Salvation all the day; for I know not the

numbers thereof

PSALM 71.23
My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto Thee;

and my soul, which Thou has redeemed

PSALM 147.1
Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing
praises unto our God: for it is pleasant; and

praise is comely.

ISAIAH 12.3-4
Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of
the wells of salvation.
4 And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD,
call upon His name, declare His doings among

the people, make mention that His name is exalted.

Marvelous grace of our loving Lord ,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt
Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilt
“Marvelous grace, infinite grace,

Grace that is greater than all our sin “
