A THANKFUL HEART


A THANKFUL HEART: Ps. 100:4 "Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name." Before we ask God for anything today, let's start off by thanking Him for all that we have, all that we are & all that will become. The benefits of a thankful heart: blessings, favor, honor, joy. We want favor & blessings on our life, Let's dare to live our lives with A THANKFUL HEART.

  1. According to the Psalmist, entering the gates and courtyards of the temple or tabernacle with a "sound” of gratitude is an expectation, not an exception.

    Case in point…

    Remember what Jesus said to the man who he healed of leprosy…

    "Where are the nine? Were there not ten lepers cleansed? Where are the nine?"

    That might be a pretty accurate assessment of the percentage of people who are truly grateful in the world. Anyway I look at it I want to be in that grateful 10%. Being thankful takes practice. I'm one, by nature, whose tendency is to complain. A true Christ-one is one looks for opportunities to show gratitude because he/she knows the kingdomal (is there such a word?) value of expressing it,

    thanks JO for the post...I am thankful God is using you to influence countless people to seek Him first and His righteousness at the start of everyday.
