Moments of Faith Daily Devotional 13 February 2024 By Prophet Frank Udoh

Title: “A Life of Thanksgiving.

Scripture Reading: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV) – “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”


In a world filled with distractions and challenges, it’s easy to lose sight of the countless blessings that surround us each day. However, as followers of Christ, we are called to cultivate a spirit of gratitude and thanksgiving in all circumstances. In this devotional, titled “A Life of Thanksgiving,” let’s explore the transformative power of gratitude and how it can enrich our lives and deepen our relationship with God.

Consider the words of the apostle Paul in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, where he exhorts believers to rejoice always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances. These are not mere suggestions but essential aspects of living out our faith in Christ. Gratitude is not just a feeling or emotion but a choice we make to acknowledge and appreciate the goodness of God in our lives, regardless of our circumstances.

Reflect on the blessings and provisions that God has graciously bestowed upon you. From the gift of salvation to the countless daily provisions and mercies, there is much to be thankful for. Even in the midst of trials and hardships, there is always something to thank God for – His presence, His comfort, His promises, and His unfailing love.

Gratitude has the power to transform our perspective and attitude toward life. When we choose to focus on the blessings rather than the challenges, we experience greater joy, contentment, and peace. Gratitude shifts our focus from what we lack to what we have, from self-centeredness to others-centeredness, and from despair to hope.

Make thanksgiving a lifestyle rather than a seasonal event. Cultivate a habit of gratitude by intentionally counting your blessings, keeping a gratitude journal, and expressing thanks to God and others regularly. Let your life be a living testimony of God’s goodness and faithfulness, reflecting His love and grace to the world around you.

Heavenly Father, thank you for the countless blessings you have bestowed upon us, both seen and unseen. Forgive us for taking your goodness and provision for granted. Help us to cultivate a spirit of gratitude in all circumstances, knowing that you are the source of every good and perfect gift. May our lives be a testimony of your faithfulness and grace, as we live each day with hearts overflowing with thanksgiving. In Jesus’ name, amen.
