The Topic of Dr. Charles Stanley Devotional for today Thursday 24th November 2022 is “The Blessing of Gratitude”
The rewards are great for those who consistently demonstrate gratefulness to God.
SCRIPTURE: Colossians 2:6-7
Bringing our requests to God through prayer is just one aspect of our communication with Him. Another part of prayer—which is frequently overlooked—is thanksgiving (Philippians 4:6).
The Father wants His children’s lives to be characterized by gratefulness. His Word tells us that an appreciative attitude should be evident in our worship (Psalm 95:2-7; Colossians 3:16), giving (2 Corinthians 9:12), relationships (Phil. 1:1-3), and the way we approach spiritual battles (1 Corinthians 15:55-57). In other words, thankfulness should permeate everything we do (Romans 14:6).
In the Scriptures, the Lord actually mandates our gratitude because He knows how being grateful affects the heart. Expressing thanks to God helps us . . .
Be aware of His presence.
Focus on Jesus Christ and diminish our pride.
Look for His purpose in challenging situations.
Remember His goodness.
Depend on Him continually.
Replace anxiety with peace and joy.
When we maintain an attitude of thanksgiving in both happy and difficult seasons, our life will feel purposeful and fulfilling. But more importantly, God will be glorified. Ask Him to bring blessings to mind so you can say “Thank You.”
Bible in One Year: Romans 7-9
