Topic: The Attitude Of Gratitude
The attitude of gratitude is the attitude of great altitude. A person who has an attitude of gratitude will always go high in life.
SCRIPTURE: In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Favour and fortune befriend the grateful.
It is a fact that the attitude of gratitude is one of the winning attitudes of life. It is one of the hallmarks of a life of character and quality. A person of character is a person who is full of gratitude even in little things. The attitude of gratitude is the attitude of great altitude. A person who has an attitude of gratitude will always go high in life.
Unfortunately, the attitude of gratitude is rapidly disappearing in our generation. This is because ingratitude is a sign of the last days in which we are living. Ingratitude happens with increasing pride and fullness of self; and when pride increases, appreciation decreases (2 Timothy 3:1-2). A proud person is one whose life revolves round self; he is full of himself but generally empty. Words like, “Thank you”, “I’m sorry”, “I’m grateful” cannot be found in his vocabulary.
Now, gratitude is necessary because favour and fortune are the portions of the thankful. Gratitude is a magnet of favour and ingratitude is the way of disfavour. Ingratitude will lead to closed doors and missed opportunities.
Beloved, my counsel is:
- Be permanently on the lookout for the Goodness of God in your life (Judges 5:11).
- Continuously rehearse the righteous Acts of God in your life and in the lives of others (Psalm 103:1-5).
- Never take the Acts of God in your life for granted (Psalm 103:1-5).
- Practice gratitude in your relationship with fellow men. This will confirm the authenticity of your Christianity (Psalm 103:1-5).
Today, I prophesy to you a fresh baptism of a new dimension of gratitude and appreciation; I arrest the spirit of ingratitude out of your life, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: Favour and fortune befriend the grateful.
- Always show gratitude and appreciation to God for the gift of life and for every gift you have received from Him.
- Identify reasons to be grateful to God every day.
PRAYER: Lord, I am grateful to You for the gift of life and for the gift of salvation. Help me to identify reasons to praise You at all times, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
