"God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good." This is a call and response that is familiar to many of us, but how often do we stop to consider what it really means that God is good even when our circumstances are difficult? Our lives should reflect our trust in the character of God as our actions and attitudes are characterized by genuine thankfulness.

In this series of Thanksgiving holiday messages, Alistair Begg examines what it means to be truly thankful. It is more than keeping lists of the good things that we enjoy, and it can't be produced by our own effort or resolve. Genuine thankfulness flows from a heart that has found contentment by resting in the providence of God. It is produced by the Spirit of God as we respond with transformed minds, wills, and hearts to the unchanging goodness of our Father, who works in all circumstances to accomplish His will for our good.
