“I will give You thanks with all my heart; I will sing Your praise before the heavenly beings”. Psalm 138:1
Today as we start our yearly countdown, we are thankful for a GRATEFUL HEART!
We are thankful because despite the tough year 2016 has presented, it has not hardened our heart and turned us away from God. We could easily have decided with everything that has gone wrong in our personal lives and seemingly the world at large, to be angry and bitter towards God. But by the grace of God, He has not only gifted us with a thankful heart, but has encouraged us in gratitude which has produced joy – even in the midst of trials.
You see, this year we have learnt that ‘A happy heart is a joyful heart and it prepares the way for the Lord’s presence, glory and awesomeness to be experienced’.
In the midst of setbacks this year, we have been taught by the Holy Spirit to be thankful, because God knows and sees and will deliver and promote accordingly.
We are exceedingly thankful because we know that this disposition is not of our doing but a gift from God. He is teaching us daily how not be discontented but in gratitude and prayer present all to Him. It has been a challenge but a beautiful growth one and for this we are exceedingly thankful Lord.
We pray our thanks and praise is a sweet smelling offering in your presence today oh Lord. In Jesus name. Amen
