Leprosy comes with a lot of irritation. Jesus did not just heal the leper who came to thank Him, He gave him total restoration; he was made whole.
Most of the time, we forget where we are coming from; we fail to think of how God has helped us through what we have been through in life which makes it difficult for us to thank Him.
Gratitude is one of the most effective indirect ways of asking for more. Many times we tend to stay in the role of complaining but when we learn to say thank you to God, He blesses us more. Although He asked us to ask until our joy becomes full, we still need to thank Him for what He has done in order to get more. People who praise God get things done faster. Gratitude helps you to get more; it makes favour and more benefits to be available to you.
There is no time in our lives when we don’t have something we are trying to complete. Stop grieving over the things you don’t have, start rejoicing over the ones you already have.
Everyday will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name forever and ever – Psalm 145:2
Every time we receive and we don’t appreciate God for what we get, we owe Him. God gives us the gift of 86400secs per day, how many do you use to say thank You to Him?
Don’t just appreciate the gift, celebrate the giver. Don’t celebrate the cloth given to you; appreciate the One who gave you the body to wear the cloth. You can have a bed and not have sleep and you can also have food and not have the appetite.
Ingratitude destroys relationship. Whenever favour comes your way,be grateful.
God does not have regard for un-expressed gratitude. If it is in your heart, let it be in your mouth. Un-expressed gratitude is like wrapping a gift for someone and not giving it out to the person.
Things to do to express gratitude:
1. Singing praises
2. Dancing – be free to express yourself in His Presence
4. Testimonies – talk about His marvelous works to others
5. Living for God
I pray that the spirit of praise will be visible in you DNA. The Lord will deliver you from every anti-praise attitude and fill your life with an atmosphere of gratitude. This month, my God will bring you into a season of Praiseworthy events. You’ll experience surpassing victory in all areas of your life, because it’s our month of Victory. He’ll defend you with His Sheild and fight your fight, in Jesus’ matchless name.
WELCOME TO OUR MONTH OF VICTORY.
You are GREAT!
