Thanksgiving is an act that comes from an attitude of appreciation. From a heart full of gratitude the mouth utters appreciation and actions follow.
Its the natural way of mankind to be ungrateful. Not once have yo done something for someone and the never appreciate the effort let alone the act. People assume its normal and usual for one to do extraordinary things for them, hence they lack the ability to say thank you.
Thank you is a courteous expression, instead of grumbling and complaining, its way easier to say thank you. Even when things do not go your way….just say thank you that you are still alive to try out another way😊
In the Old Testament, the Israelites were the lest bit thankful, even when provided for Manna (from Heaven!), ooooh they still thought-whats this-its better Egypt….I mean, REALLY? Food from Daddy in Heaven!! I would love that now😉😉 God wondered why wouldn’t they just give Him thanks for His abundant provision. Think of it, arent we the Israelites of today? We think it was better when I lived in my parents house, or when I worked a certain place, or when I was young…🤔🤔 imagine if we changed our worries to acts of gratitude. How do you think that would make God feel?
Three things that contain our Thanksgiving;-👇
1.Attitude of gratitude
2. What are you thankful for
3.Who are you thankful for.
-Sometimes we take our thanks where unnecessary. to people yet God deserves them.
We thank God because if we need things changed He alone will Change them. He is Sovereign.
You thank Him even in tough circumstances because as Romans 8:28 that all things work together for good.
Even now miracles are happening, hence a reason to thank Him. He is still making me a candidate for a miracle.
Everything happens for good to those who trust in the lord ,we should develop a thankful heart ,we should not have any complaint about anything coz this tells God you are accusing him of incompetence,God loves a place where he is acknowledged and thanks giving acknowledges God . May be a people that can see past the issues and just be thankful always. Rejoicing in the Lord.😊
