On this Thanksgiving Day, we at Bible or Not firstly give thanks to God for giving us the time, energy and ability to share blog posts with our readers and provide Bible games to those who like to have fun and challenge themselves with the Word of God.
Just as importantly, we give thanks to you, our faithful readers and players. Thank you for taking the time you spend with us, for your many comments, for our game ratings and feedback and for following and liking us on Twitter and Facebook. We hope and pray that God continually blesses all of you. And now, it’s time for our featured quote from the Bible on this happy Thanksgiving Day.
“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: Be thankful unto Him, and bless His name.” – Psalms 100:4 KJV
Please join us in reflecting on all of the things we can be thankful for, not only today, but each day the the Lord gives us the breath of life. Here are more Thanksgiving Bible verses. And as we are thankfully appreciating God’s blessings upon us, let’s also remember the many in need this Thanksgiving Day and coming Christmas Season.
Bible or Not is not affiliated with any of these relief organizations, but we do encourage you to help those in need, wherever you choose to give. We pray that God will bless you in all of your generosity, and remember, the Lord loves a cheerful giver (Bible or Not?).

I can only imagine how many times today I will hear someone say thank God it’s Friday, or TGIF. So of course I wondered what the Bible had to say about it.
Firstly, each and every day is a gift from God: “This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it”. So, whether Friday or Monday, we thank God for the day. All days are equal in the eyes of God, and each day is to be observed with thanksgiving. We see in the book of Romans:
“One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks.” – Romans 14:5-6 NKJV
Yes, the key is thanks, so today, THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY!

There is a classic traditional Christian hymn that comes to mind with this quote. In the chorus of the hymn He Lives, there is the line, “You ask me how I know He lives, He lives within my heart”.
“God has two dwellings; one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart”. – Bible or Not?
This quote is true, God does in fact live in heaven and the Bible tells us that He lives in the heart of every believer. The Bible quotes Jesus as saying, “Behold, I stand at the door [of your heart], and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup (dwell) with him, and he with me”. However, the exact “God has two dwellings” quote is not Bible.
Izaak Walton is the author of the quote. He was a popular English writer who was born August 9, 1593 and died December 15, 1683. Izaak Walton was an avid fisherman and is probably best known for his book called The Compleat Angler. Walton als wrote several biographies of prominent clergymen of his time. You can see the compleat biography here ;-).
