Scriptures are from the King James Holy Bible.
Every day is thanksgiving. High and jubilant praises to the Most High, GOD. Our Lord commands that in EVERYTHING, we are to give thanks.
Let us be mindful NOT to pray amiss but to pray according to the will of GOD. A person may ask, "Please pray that I'll get that job." or "Please pray for my child to get straight A's." Before we pray, we must ask the Lord to give us His will to pray. The Holy Bible tells us in Romans 15:3, "For even Christ pleased not himself;..." Jesus had a measure of desire for His will but what did He pray to our Father before He went to hang on that cross?
And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
No, everybody shall NOT have a Happy Thanksgiving. The reality is that some will and some won't. One thing, though, is ALWAYS certain and that is - GOD loves and He forever reigns. And there is NOTHING too hard for Him. Whatever it is, it's NOT bigger than GOD.
If this day is happy for you, thank GOD. If this day isn't happy for you, thank GOD. Whether happy or not, we ALL have things to be thankful for...
My wish for us all is that we steadfastly seek the Lord and purpose to do ALL that He commands. When we keep GOD's Word, He promises to provide EVERYTHING that we need - when and how. And when GOD deems fit, He also gives us the desires of our hearts.
Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
