Topic: How God Uses Thankfulness To Bless Us
Scripture: Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, all you His hosts, you His ministers who do His pleasure. – Psalm 103:21 (AMPC)
When we maintain an attitude of thanksgiving, we close the door to grumbling and complaining—which seem to be ever-present temptations in our lives. The truth is we don’t develop a complaining attitude; we are all born with one. But with God’s help, we can develop and nurture a thankful attitude.
If we practice regularly praising, worshiping, and thanking God, there will be no room for complaining, faultfinding, and murmuring. The Bible says in Philippians 2:14 (AMPC), Do all things without grumbling and faultfinding and complaining…. Complaining opens the door for the devil to cause us trouble, but thankfulness opens the door for God to bless us.
Prayer Starter: I am grateful, Father, that with Your help I can develop a thankful attitude. I worship You for Your goodness, Your power, and Your might. I choose to be thankful for Your presence in my life rather than grumble and complain about things of the world.
