Episode 845 Show Notes

From the Show

Paul isn’t saying that we should thank God for the evil things in the world. What he’s saying is that we should continue to thank God because he’s good. We don’t always see how his plan is working out in a good way, but we know he is able to work all things together for our good, and we thank him because he is a merciful God who is in control.



–Adriel Sanchez

How Do I Give Thanks to God When I Don’t Feel Very Thankful?

Questions in this Episode

  1. I want to exercise through yoga but I know that some people think any practice of yoga is an act of worship to other gods. What do you think?
  2. I feel completely condemned and that God has given up on me. What should I do, how do I know that I have surrendered my life to the Lord?
  3. I know that in the Psalms it says that we should give thanks to the Lord, and I know that this isn’t just good advice, but I often feel uncomfortable giving thanks in prayer because I honestly don’t feel very thankful. Is this a form of paying lip service and going through the motions or should we practice giving thanks even if we don’t feel like it?
  4. Is Jeremiah 29:11 only a promise to the nation of Israel or does it apply to us as well?
