WORD FOR THOUGHT: GRATITUDE IS AN EXPRESSION OF A THANKFUL HEART
TOPIC: BE THANKFUL
TEXT: EPHESIANS 5:20″ Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
” Be Thankful “
If our attitude in Thanksgiving is only seen when good things happen to us then, it is unchristian. Thanks giving should not only be expressed on the basis of the good that happened to us, it also should be evidently expressed in our bad times. The natter of Thanksgiving cannot be reprimanded just as it has been proven to be most sure and profitable to mankind.
Your depth of Thanksgiving is an indication of your level spiritually. Anything that affects you in giving thanks to God has the right to deny you eternity with God. Thanksgiving is a proof of your relationship with God, and no man can enter into eternity with God without relationship with him. Our attitude in Thanksgiving is a prove of how much we know God and our obedience to God.
Attitude in Thanksgiving has the right to change the altitude of any person. If your Thanksgiving is only evidential in your good times, then it is directly evidential to your level of spirituality.
Your attitude in giving of thanks unto God, should not be expressed only in the seasons when expectations are granted, it’s only but an indication of your knowledge of God. Until your Thanksgiving affects your heart it cannot reflect on your life. Until our giving of thanks unto God becomes habitual it cannot be effectual. “Be Thankful”
Thanksgiving enforces a release from divinity unto humanity. Anytime you appreciate God for what he has done for you, it opens the heaven for an unseen blessings to flow in your experience.
Your attitude in Thanksgiving must be an expression and demonstration of what is within you outwardly manifested. Grateful people don’t hide their attitude while giving thanks to God, they are apt at expressing how they feel with what God have done for them.
Through giving of thanks we extol God Almighty and he reciprocates our giving of thanks unto him.
Did you know that anytime you glorify God that he magnifies you? Gratitude to God through giving of thanks is indeed an attitude that effect changes in a persons life. Until you cultivate the attitude of been grateful to God for everything, you will be doing yourself more harm than good.
Appreciation in Thanksgiving is the secret of multiplication.
Luke: 9:16″ Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to set before the people.(NIV)
The miracle of five loaves of bread and two fish was evidential through the power of thanks giving. It is very impossible to feed four thousand people with two fish and five loafs of bread and their was a left over of twelve basket. Isn’t it impossible with man in actual sense? but through the power of Thanksgiving unto God, there was an exceeding abundant supply.
People of Thanksgiving are never bankruptcy of God’s blessings. Practicing the life of thankfulness to God all the time guarantee assurance of his unseen blessings. A little “thank you” that you will say to God for a” little favour” shown to you is a key to unlock the door that hides unseen “great favours”.
Irrespective of what you are going through never give up; because giving up is giving all. Through the power of giving thanks to God through Jesus Christ, which is a force that activates all things working together to bring about good happenings in a person’s life.
Thanking God in all things is an expression of your heart of gratitude for everything, no matter the state of life you find yourself, knowing that their is hope of light for a living at the end of the tunnel. Shalom!
# I EXPRESS MY UNRESERVED THANKS TO GOD WHO HAS GIVING ME ALL THINGS THAT PERTAINS TO LIFE AND GODLINESS.
# I UPROOT ANY SEED OF UNGRATEFULNESS IN ME TOWARDS GOD AND MAN BY FIRE.
IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME AMEN.
