Give Thanks For The Unshakeable Kingdom

Tuesday, November 30, 2021


“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe” – Hebrews 12:28

Helen Keller was an American author, disability rights advocate, political activist, and lecturer. Born in West Tuscumbia, Alabama, she lost her sight and hearing after an illness at the age of nineteen months. At the age of seven, she began her education through her first teacher and life-long companion Anne Sullivan, who taught her language, including reading and writing. After an education at both specialist and mainstream schools, she attended Radcliffe College of Harvard University and became the first deaf-blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. 

Helen became a Christian and she said: “For three things I thank God every day of my life: thanks that he has vouchsafed me knowledge of his works; deep thanks that he has set in my darkness the lamp of faith; deep, deepest thanks that I have another life to look forward to--a life joyous with light and flowers and heavenly song.”

No matter where life has led you today, we can give thanks to Christ for eternal life in Him. Today in prayer, give thanks to the Lord that you have another life to look forward to – a life of joy and love with Jesus.   

“Gratitude is an offering precious in the sight of God, and it is one that the poorest of us can make and be not poorer but richer for having made it.” –A.W. Tozer

God’s Word: “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise--the fruit of lips that confess his name.” – Hebrews 13:15
