How many times has God done us well and we refuse to give thanks?
How many times has He saved us from death or harm and we still refuse to give thanks?
Many would say;
What has he done for me?
I asked for money, He didn't give me.
I asked for good health, He denied me.
Why should I praise God?
I'm not where I ought to be.
My mates are ahead of me
I put it to us that we must keep praising God no matter the circumstance we find ourselves in.
Reflect on this and appreciate Him today.
He alone deserves our praises.
For me, I worry that God why would I be posted to a far distance when my dream was to stay close to home.
But in it I found peace. Because God is my stay. And He has gone there before me to make every crooked places strait.

Gratitude is actually a weapon we can use in fighting our battles.
We want full testimony and result, we should be grateful.
It's just like the story of the 10 lepers in the bible, they came to Jesus in order to be healed from their leprosy.
Instead, Jesus told them to go show themselves to the priests as Moses laid it down. The 10 of them did what they were told. They were healed.
Immediately after they got their healing, one of them thought about the one who has done it for him, he remembered Jesus. That he wouldn't have been healed if not for Him.
He went back to Jesus with a grateful heart.
Jesus was touched by this act, he blessed Him and pronounced that He is made whole totally. He received full healing.
How about you?
Do you see sleeping and waking up, miracle enough to appreciate your maker.
Do you appreciate Him for things he has done?
Do you praise Him for things He has not done?
Do you still praise Hom for the things He will do?
Cory Ausbory wrote in his song 🎵🗣🗣🗣
"1. Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me
You have been so, so good to me
Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so kind to me
Chorus: Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights 'til I'm found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn't earn it, and I don't deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God, yeah
2. When I was Your foe, still Your love fought for me
You have been so, so good to me
When I felt no worth, You paid it all for me
You have been so, so kind to me"
Check out the lyrics of the song above, are you grateful?
His love continuously fights for us.
He has been there for us from the beginning of time.
Gratitude alone gives God Glory.
A great reason to give thanks to God is because it glorifies Him. Showing how grateful we are gives glory to God as we are not exhalting what we received alone as gifts from Him, but we are appreciating the Giver.
Being grateful helps us realize all that we have did not come because of us, but from God.
Don't forget to appreciate Him today, praise Him and see if He won't open doors you least expected for you. Instead of complaining, give thanks.
You can just take a few minutes to say "daddy I'm grateful 🙏"
