Start every morning by thanking God for what He promised over your life. “Father, thank You that You promised the path of the righteous gets brighter and brighter. You promised no good thing will You withhold because I walk uprightly. You promised You would do exceeding, abundantly above and beyond what I can imagine.”
No matter what’s happening, choose to be happy. Don’t focus on what’s wrong. Find something positive in your life. Thank God for the small things.
Psalm 30 says, “God has blessings stored up for the righteous.” I want to activate that promise. I need God’s favor to fulfill my destiny. Every day I say, “Lord, thank You for those blessings you have stored up for me. Thank You for opening doors that no one else can close. Thank You for encircling me with Your favor like a shield. Thank You that You would not withhold anything nice from me because I walk uprightly.” That’s not just quoting scripture, that’s not just making hopeful statements, that’s mixing my faith. That’s adding an ingredient that causes what God said to become profitable to me.
I pray that you will set aside the next year to pursue God with a thankful heart. Don’t go through your life frustrated, miserable, and unhappy; God has something much better in store for you.
Live each day with a thankful heart, grateful for every good thing— no matter how big or how small—that God has done in your life. You can’t help but be excited about what God is going to accomplish in your future as you remember the excellent things God has done in the past and understand the blessings you have now.
Even if you haven’t done everything right, you can still come to God and ask Him for help and He will do something wonderful in your life if you will have faith.
God has your best interest at heart. If He’s not giving you what you want, that means He has something better. He loves you too much to let you miss your destiny.
You may have given up, but God doesn’t give up. He is about to breathe new life into your dreams, into your health, into your relationships. You’re going to feel a stirring, a new passion, a new excitement. That’s God resurrecting what He has placed inside of you.
I’m challenging you to slow down enough in your life to pay attention to the God that’s there for you & thank Him for every little, teeny, tiny thing that He does for you.
I don’t think we can be truly grateful and thankful until we fully understand the grace of God. Once we grasp the fact that every good thing we have comes to us by the goodness of God, what is there left for us but gratitude and thanksgiving?
We hope you take today to thank God for something He’s done in your life. When we’re thankful, we are able to receive God’s continued favor in our lives.
Lord, Thank you for having us in the palm of your hands. You know our dreams and goals. You know our challenges and fears. Thank you for taking on our battles right now. Every power attempting to stop us is crumbling. Today is a watershed moment. You are doing something fresh, God; you are restoring health and relationships.Take us where we can’t on our own. In Jesus’ name. Amen
