The Key to Increase – Part 2
Scripture Reference: “Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!” Psalm 107:1
Perhaps things are not working out the way you think they should. You are looking at what you have is so small compared to what you are expecting.
Many people at the beginning of the year will write out so many goals and then somewhere in the middle of the years, they look at what they have; it looks like five loaves of bread to five thousand. And then you begin to murmur and get depressed. If you are depressed, things will remain down. You need to look at the seemingly little and give thanks to God.
If what you have now is like the five loaves of bread and two fish, and yet what you want to achieve is like feeding the five thousand, the tendency is to be unthankful. But that will keep you down the more. When you appreciate God, things will begin to appreciate.
When you praise Him, He can begin to raise you.
Daily digest: Thankfulness is more than a reaction to receiving what we desire. It’s a tonic against disillusionment and bitterness. In the midst of Paul’s trials, he knew where the strength to keep going came from. And that resolution was forged in the fires of gratitude.
Prayer: Dear Lord, I am so grateful for everything that You have given me. Thank you so much for the loved ones in my life, and for the many ways in which I am cared for and supported on a day to day basis.
