Use these 30 days of Thanksgiving Bible verses either for the month of November, the holiday of Thanksgiving, or any day for giving thanks!
I think one of my favorite Thanksgiving Scriptures must be 1 Thessalonians 5:18, along with the two verses before it –
(1) 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV
“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
I love this verse because it doesn’t say, “give thanks for all circumstances,” but “in all circumstances.” When we choose to have an attitude of gratitude, keeping our focus on Jesus, the outcome is His joy that fills us no matter what surrounds us!
Daniel gives us a wonderful example to follow when he is faced with troubled circumstances and accusations against him; he gives thanks “in” all things.
(2) Daniel 6:10 NIV
“Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before.”
