Let’s Be Thankful

Dear Friends,
There are times in our lives when we need an extra dosage of faith. In those moments, we need to ask God to fill us with more faith so we can believe that He will come through for us. One of the things we can do to increase our faith is to remember what He has done for us in the past. Another thing we can do is to thank Him for everything we have in our lives. Today’s devotional encourages us to be thankful. Enjoy!

Be Thankful for What God Has Done
# 284

Psalm 9:1 (NLT)
I will thank you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.

God loves the heart of a thankful person. When we are thankful to Him for all the things He has done for us, He wants to bless us even more. When we are going through bad things or circumstances in our lives, we tend to forget all the blessings God has given us in the past. It is in those times we need to remember what God has done for us and truly thank Him for every gift and blessing He has given us.

When we bring these things to our remembrance, it helps us get through the current situation. Our faith also increases, and we are able to trust Him again through yet one more thing in our lives. Thanking God is vital to our success in every area of our lives.

At home, thank Him for your house, husband (if you are married), children (if you have any), your friends, and family. At work, thank Him for your job, your boss, your employees (if you are in management), your peers, and friends. Thank God for letting you be His child. Tell people of the marvelous things God has done for you.
