QUOTE OF THE DAY: “AS MAGNET FINDS THE IRON, SO WILL A THANKFUL HEART FINDS HEAVENLY BLESSINGS”
Memory Verse: “They forgot the God who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt” Psalms 106:21.
Being truly grateful for what you have will make you have more. But if you concentrate on what you do not have, you will never, ever have enough. If you keep looking at what you do not have, there is no way you can recognize what you have. If you look at what you have in life, you cannot have everything. The unthankful heart deserve no mercy, but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and just as the magnet finds the iron, so he/she will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings.
You may think you do not have anything, but I can tell you that you have something. God has done something for you! Someone said: ‘I have learnt silence from the talkative, tolerance from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet strange, I am ungrateful to these teachers’. What does this thought portray? You can give thanks for all things including strange circumstances, which are teachers sent along your life’s pathway.
That’s why 1 Corinthians 10:10 says; ‘And do not grumble, as some of them did – and were killed by the destroying angel’. Thanksgiving in your wilderness will add grace to your journey and makes straight your focus. Thanksgiving stops one from distractions of life. It portrays maturity; it is an act of worship. Concentrating on what you do not have puts unnecessary pressure on you, invokes the spirit of jealousy and portrays God to you in a bad light. To look away from what you do not have temporarily, even if they are pressing needs is maturity. Never let the enemy see your tears, never let he enemy notice your desperation, or they might operate on that platform to torture your emotions.
List out those things God has done for you since the year began. Are you not happy that God did them? So, irrespective of your present circumstance, give thanks. Stop pitying yourself. I prophesy; you will hear good news before today is over. You are lifted!
