A Simple Thank You

You are the only one that has an issue (so you may think). The rest of the world, you imagine, is dancing in the rain, with reality show perfected kind of lives. Surely, no one else is inconvenienced with sickness, lack or trials. It may appear to you that these gigantic problems only dwell in your personal world. Complaining has no power and has not changed things that are going wrong. Where is God when you need Him most? Why do you feel so alone?

Rejoice always and delight in your faith; be unceasing and persistent in prayer; in every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (Amplified Bible)

Remain joyful as you pray consistently and give thanks to God. When we praise God, He accepts the invitation to surround us with Himself. Praise is a word of action that includes prayer, worship, the lifting of hands and voices in thanks.

Your situation should not preclude you from praising God but should provoke you to praise Him more. Giving thanks is His will for you and I. Lifting your hands or opening your mouth in praise may seem hard at first. However, the more you praise the more you will desire to experience the peace it brings.

God is with you. You are not alone!

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.

 Psalm 136:1 (NKJV)

Faith is demonstrated as the power of God’s word is activated by a simple praise of thanks to Him. Thank Him in advance for what you have prayed for in faith!

    AMEN!!! It is soooo hard to praise and pout at the same time! Praise removes the pout even if it doesn’t happen right away…persist and eventually praising God for who He is and what He has done for us overtakes the pout for our current situation. This was for me! 🙂
