Unthankfulness is having it’s place in our lives way too much. It makes us having a difficult relation to life. Gods will for you is to enjoy your everyday walk with him, but while holding on to unthankfulness you will never see that come to pass.
1 thess 5:18
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Thankfulness brings us in line with the will of God for your life. We don’t have much that we can give to God, but one thing we actually can give is our thankfulness. By giving him our thanks we get a sound focus and a thinking in the right direction. It will open up for many blessings to be released over our life’s according to Gods will.
What happens when we let unthankfulness abide in us?
For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Unthankfulness causes blindness to take over our hearts. Blindness is not to stop seeing, but it’s to see other things than God wants us to see. We get a wrong perspective of ourselves, God, and other people. We will have wrong understanding of life and become unhappy.
One unthankful person can never enjoy life. We can be rich in material things, cars, money, even friends, but if we are not thankful we are the poorest people on the earth.
Some people complain that the devil has sent so high electricity bills. But a revealing truth is that the devil has not used the electricity in your home. You need to thank God for that bill. Think about all the good things you could use it for. And think about all those people on the earth that can’t even receive a bill because they don’t even have a home to stay in. Praise God for your bills!
Some people complain that they have too much to study while others around the world barely survive because they never had a chance to go to school. Praise God for being busy with studies!
Some complain that they have to get up of the bed too early in the morning. Even that is something you can praise God for, because that means you have a job to go to in the morning! It also tells me that you have a warm bed in your home. Others have to sleep on the street because they have no bed at all. Praise God for the few hours of sleep you got in a warm bed!
Maybe your husband is just sitting in front of the television all day, but you should praise God for him! That he has patience enough to be your husband 🙂
Praise God for life! Maybe it could have been better, but it could also be worse. At least you live, and that alone is worth praising God for.
Im sure there is much more to praise God for, and if we open our eyes to if, (maybe it sounds like a slogan, but) our life’s will be changed!!
