Topic: Give Thanks [Wednesday, 22nd Feb. 2017]
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. Psalms 100:4
Sometimes, we fail to appreciate what we have that the Lord blessed us with. It is easy to look at life with a regretful disposition when we have not been able to acquire our most desired needs. Our minds gets crowded out with resentment, like we are carrying all the world’s problems on our heads. But when we actually take stoke of our lives retrospectively, we will see what God has done for us, and the need to be thankful dawns on us.
One of the wills of the Father for us, is that we should be full of thanks always. Scriptures say in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 “in every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” The will of God concerning you is for you to give thanks. And in Philippians 4:7, we are enjoyed to accompany our supplication with thanksgiving. That’s how important thanks giving is to the Lord.
Beloved, just like the Psalmist, we should give thanks unto the Lord for He is good and His mercies endures forever. We should give thanks to the Lord because our strength is renewed like the eagles. We should give thanks because God has given us a hope and a wonderful future. We should give thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light. Give God thanks, it is His will for you.
Keep winning daily.
Take out time to give thanks unto the Lord for all that He has said about you in His Word.
