Gratitude is a vital Key to greater height.
“When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.” – Willie Nelson
If we can think well and deeply, we will be grateful and give heartfelt thanks to the Almighty God for all the beautiful things we enjoy per second, each day of our lives.
It is pride that makes us not to give thanks to God. We lack the art of gratitude because we think we deserve more from God. We believe that we have done much for God and so he needs to pay us back and the payback is that anything we want must be given to us instantly, even if we don’t need it now. We feel too special and if He is yet to answer us we feel offended in Him. This should not be the attitude of a true Christian.
No man on earth can beat the benchmark of God’s righteousness, so anything you receive is not your right but a privilege. The level of your righteousness can never meet up to the standard of God. All our righteousness are as filthy rags to Him (Isaiah 64:6). Therefore, if righteousness is what qualifies us for His blessing, how much can we be blessed?
Be grateful to God for the gift of life. You are alive not by your power but His grace.
Be grateful to Him for sound health. You can’t pay for the oxygen you breathe in.
Think, think more, think deeper and you will have many reasons to give thanks to God.
Be Thankful! PraiseGod!
