Why You Should be Thankful to God and Praise Him!

“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.” (Psalm 100:4, 5)

Blessings to everyone who follows this blog. I apologize for not updating it for the past couple months… there were some issues going on, on my side… but hey, there is no better time to start doing the right thing like the present!  🙂

Anyways, this morning while I was in prayer… as I typically do, I began to thank God for the blessings He has ALREADY given me… and praise Him for the “little” things he has given to me.

Your heavenly Father & Daddy God LOVES it when when you begin your communication with Him by praising Him and thanking Him for what He has ALREADY given to you.

Praise and Thanksgiving is how you and I are able to “literally” walk into the presence of an ALMIGHTY, an all KNOWING, and an all LOVING God when we are in prayer.

Praise has a special way of breaking things that tend to hold us (such as anger). It has a way of setting us free from things which can have us bound and in bondage (such as unforgiveness). Would you even dare to believe that Praise has a way of giving us hope, in the hopeless and dark times that we all encounter during life?

So you might be asking this question: “Brother Daniel… what you say sounds ALL good and gravy and everything like that, but what have I got to be thankful for? I’m going through a mess right now, I am depressed, the economy is bad, my car broke down… blah, blah, blah”

The real question to ask my friend is this: “What have you NOT got to be thankful for?”

You see, the reality of the situation is this: If you currently live in the United States of America (or any other 1st world country)… you are more financially blessed and taken care of than 97% of the world’s population. By the blessing of God, you are in the TOP 3 percentile of the world.

There are currently people living in countries where they are being murdered, slaughtered, starved to death, being ran out of their homes, persecuted, living in lands ravaged by war… and that’s all on a GOOD day!

So I ask again — what have you NOT got to be thankful to God for?

If you have a roof over your head, clothes on your back, people and family that love you, disposable income, health in your body… you are TRULY blessed of the Lord in GOOD measure… and should take a minute or two to THANK and PRAISE God, for what He has already done for you and your family!

Have a great weekend, and walk in God’s abundance for your life today! Have a comment or question, go ahead and leave them 🙂
