Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will].” 1 Thess 5:18 AMP

Many times this passage of scripture is misunderstood when trying to be interpreted. It is easy to think that it’s saying give thanks because what you are going through is God’s will. But, that is not what that means at all. We are to give thanks because no matter what the circumstances may be, God has already given us the victory over it through Jesus Christ. We can be thankful because nothing has taken God by surprise and we stand in the finished Work of Christ.  We will have trials and tribulations but Christ has overcome the world and taken away its power over us.  St. John 16:33 AMP states “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]”

You see, we are not thanking God for the problem; but we give thanks to God because He solved the problem before the problem manifested itself. That is why it’s important to rightly divide the Word of Truth by the revelation of the finished Work of Christ. Is this scripture referring to before the death of Christ or after His death? Therefore it becomes easy to give thanks when you have a revelation of what Jesus has already done. So beloved as the scripture says in 1 Cor 15:57 KJV  “But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Therefore I say to you Give Thanks!!
