What did you do after you got what you wanted, from God?
It takes gratitude to go further with God.
Have you ever asked yourself why is it that you have to be grateful? Well, maybe it is time to get answers to this question. Showing gratitude towards God shows that you acknowledge and you are thankful for everything that he is doing in your life, on a daily basis. Until you thank God for where he has brought you, he will not take you where he has planned to take you, because if you are not grateful in the smaller things, even in the bigger things you will not be grateful. When you Show gratitude to God, You are giving back all the glory to him, and this is what The Lord seeks.( Isaiah 42:8). Being grateful to God is one of the choices that a Christian has to make on a daily basis. Although you might be going through some difficult and challenging seasons in your life, there is always a reason why you can be grateful to God. Being grateful to God shows him that you appreciate what he has for you, and you acknowledge that without him, you would not have made it to the other side. Being grateful to God will push him to do more for you, and most of the times, he will do more than what you expected. (Luke 17:11 to 19). Sometimes you fail to appreciate what God is doing for you because you are busy comparing yourself with others, and that is why you focus on what you do not have and fail to appreciate God. Wake up with words of worship, forget about your failure of yesterday because today is a new day and new things are to happen.
Ways to show gratitude to God
1.You can show gratitude to God with the fruits of your lips. Through, praise, worship and thanksgiving.( Hebrews 13:15)
2. By letting others know what God has done for you. This can even encourage someone who is going through the same battles that you went through, to hold on and have hope.(Psalm 105:1)
3.By honoring God with the fruits of your wealth.(Proverbs 3:9). You need to celebrate what God has given you with the people that are in need.
