Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.
Psalms 100:4-5 NKJV
A common misconception about our relationship with God is that we need to be afraid of Him. We aren’t supposed to approach Him cowering and shaking with fear. Instead, He has invited us to come to Him in thanksgiving! And there is so much to be thankful for. No matter what has happened or is happening in your life, you can find things to be thankful for.
Thankfulness is also a key part of our walk of faith. Thankfulness is how we keep our soul prospering, it keeps our mind on spiritual things, improves our thought life, improves our mood, reminds us of all God has done, and builds faith in us, and those are just a few!
Finally, faith puts us in a position to receive from God. A thankful person is a happy, healthy, prosperous, and peaceful person. The more we give glory to God, the more we will see His faithfulness in our lives. The choice is yours! Make a decision to give thanks to God every day, even if it is a small thing, and you will see your life change!
Be Blessed and Encouraged,
