Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thes 5:16-18. Our relationship with God must be active and not passive. As we keep God in the forefront of our life, His joy will flow from inside us and help us to keep our peace in all situations. Praying constantly must be a part of our daily lifestyle. Prayer is how we communicate with God, open our heart to Him and stand on His promises that come into being through prayer and faith. This is vital as any relationship will fail without communication. We must also be grateful in all situations, even when things go wrong, as these times draw us nearer to God where we will see how wonderfully He turns around what was meant for harm to good. Praise God today that as we keep close to Him, our life will be full of joy and gratitude for all that He does for us.
