Why Thanksgiving Changes EverythingErwin W. Lutzer | November 22, 2009
Selected highlights from this sermon
Complaining is a national pastime. Everyone complains about everything. Thankfulness gives us a new perspective. Unless we pray with thanksgiving, we cannot find peace.
Through thanksgiving, we affirm the power of God. While it is not popular, we thank God that He is working in the midst of both good and bad things. By thanksgiving, we also affirm the wisdom of God. In His providence, God has a plan which we must trust entirely. Avoiding anxiety and exhibiting patience, we rejoice when it seems impossible, because we have a hidden source of strength in God. While everyone else is tied up in knots, we can have peace through thanksgiving!
