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 🙂

Today is a Blessing to you… from Your Father!

Today is a day of blessing for you! One way to kickstart your day in a good way... is to get out into nature, and do some running.

Today is a day of blessing for you! One way to kickstart your day in a good way... is to get out into nature, and do some running.

This is the day the LORD has made… let us REJOICE and be GLAD in it.”  (Psalm 118:24)

No matter what trials or difficulties you have been facing all week long… remember that yesterday is gone… and know that TODAY is a new day.

Today is a day not like the day before… but it is truly a blessing for you to be alive… and you should be JOYFUL about this blessing!

Many times, we tend to get caught up with the junk and the mess that goes on in our lives, businesses, home, and workplaces… and as human beings, we tend to CARRY the weights and burdens with us on a day to day basis.

But now is the time for you to relinquish that load and that heavy burden. Don’t allow the things that happened yesterday (the past)… to negatively affect you in the present moment that God has made for you.

I am not saying for any of you to forget about yesterday… or not learn any lessons from what happened in the past… but what I am saying is this: DO NOT allow your yesterday to negatively impact or destroy your day today.

This is truly a beautiful day for you… wherever in the world you are located at… and no matter what is going on in your personal life. We are only blessed with so many days to walk on this earth, so it is definitely in your BEST interest to live life fully, without being weighed down by your past.

If you are feeling tired and worn out in the morning when you wake up… or if you feel depressed or highly stressed about the day that is yet in front of you, try some of Dr. Daniel’s remedies and tell me how it works out for you:

* Get a good night’s sleep. Go to bed around 9pm-10pm on weekdays… get a good 8 hours sleep, and wake up around 5am-6am. You will feel REFRESHED in the morning!

* Talk to God EARLY in the morning. Pray to God to give you strength and peace for your day today… and thank Him for the beautiful day that He has blessed you with… and thank Him for what He has already blessed you with (good health, beautiful family, roof over your head, etc.)

* Get the Daily News… Gospel News that is. I recommend getting a One Year Bible, that allows you to read the whole Bible in one year. If you are strapped for time in the morning… just read the New Testament section, Psalms, and Proverbs each day.

* Get Fresh Air. Try to get out after your 15 minutes of prayer & Bible time and get some fresh air. Get out into nature early in the morning and go jog… and get some good air into your system. That will invigorate you for the rest of the day!

* Declare What Your Day Will Look Like. Make a declaration with your mouth on what you EXPECT your day to look like… and more times than not your day will look exactly as the words you speak.

If you have any questions about God, the Bible, or life in general that you would like discussed next Thursday… please e-mail me at Daniel [at] TodayAbundance [dot] com… or leave a comment on this post.

Until tomorrow, be blessed, and walk in God’s abundance for your life today!
