Begin the Year with Gratitude

Daily Devotion for January 4, 2018


Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
—1 Thessalonians 5:18 NLT

Gratitude is a life changer. When facing a situation that seems confusing or upsetting, thank God for His understanding. Praise Him for His wisdom and guidance. By being thankful you reinforce your understanding of God’s goodness.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I can endure any situation because I know You are working on my behalf. I’m safe in Your hands.

"If we can get Guideposts inspirational stories into the hands of people who may not have a devotional life, they can share the true-life stories of how God works in the world. The joy of Guideposts is their free, donated magazines to my hospital.         --Rob C.,  Director of Pastoral Care.
