15 Verses on Giving Thanks

November 16, 2022

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it seems appropriate that we take time to give thanks to God for all of His abundant blessings to us. In fact, the Bible often tells us to give thanks, and here are some Bible verses about giving thanks. When our hearts give thanks, it helps us to give praise and credit where credit is due, and our hearts rejoice as well, as we take the time to reflect on all of the good gifts our Father has given us. James 1:17 says: “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” 

So here are 15 verses on giving thanks.

1 Thessalonians 5:18

in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Psalm 100:4

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, [And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

Psalm 28:7 

The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, And with my song I will praise Him.

Psalm 7:17

Philippians 4:7 

and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
