TEENS OPEN HEAVENS DEVOTIONAL FOR TODAY
Many times you look around you and all you see are things to complain to God about. One thing that you don’t realise is that God detests complaints and murmurings (1 Corinthians 10:10). Psalm 100:4 says:
“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.”
If you want to gain access to God’s presence at all, you need to come with thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is what will make Him do whatever you want Him to do, not complaints. You may say “Oh, but there is really nothing to thank Him for”.
That is not true, if you think deeply, you will realise that you are alive, your body parts are functioning, you have food to eat and you have a glorious future in Christ Jesus. You will discover that you have a lot to be thankful for if you only look inwards. Instead of complaining give God thanks and you will receive more gifts from Him.
Action Point: List ten things that you are grateful to God for and just thank Him all day.
