STAGNANCY PANACEA .
A grateful thought toward heaven every morning they say,is itself a prayer. Cicero added, “a thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues”. Gratitude to God every day is the only viable path to a world of no limit and a gate way to the your next level in life.
It is very sad how forgetful we can be about God goodness and Providences in our daily lives. There is no doubt, a lot of water have passed under the bridge of our lives but we have not been swept away by it ugly crosscurrent. This is nothing but His undeserving mercy upon us. The psalmist was so grateful to acknowledge the goodness and mercies of God by declaring, “bless the Lord oh my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name, bless the Lord oh my soul and forget not all His benefits”. It is worth thanksgiving for everything God has done and will do in our lives. For those who have been saved from the power of sin with hope of eternal life should unreservedly be grateful to God Because, it is the greatest asset of life.
Looking back in our passing days and years in life, we are left with no option but to express our utmost gratitude to God for His abundance mercy and love He has made available. There is nobody on the planet who does not have a cause to appreciate God for what He has done. But it appears the reverse is the case, being clouded by our seemly unmet needs and desires.
This is nothing but a gross ingratitude to God. For God commended his Love toward us in that,when we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. This is an unmerited and underserved love that should attract total gratitude to the King of kings.
The scripture records, “if it is not the Lord who has been on our side, when the enemy rose up, they would have swallowed us up quick”. What a timely intervention that is! A grateful heart to God for what He has done remain a veritable tool and instrument for a flight to a world of no limit. It is popularly said that, “an heart of appreciation makes application for more”.
There are three depositions and attitude of gratitude to God that qualify you to an unending realm of rest and launches you to an inexhaustible store house of God. First, Thanksgiving; this is appreciating God for what He has done and will do. Secondly, Praising Him. This is a conscious and deliberate effort and act of acknowledging and recognising God for who He is and Thirdly, worshipping Him for His promises and His awesome power to do exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think according to the power that works in us.
These three dimensional responsibility to God launches any man to a world of supernatural abundance and victory unprecedented. It provoke divine doors open and breakthrough unlimited.
Therefore, the quickest way to move to the next level in life and to enter into the realm of rest and superabundant supplies is to be grateful to God for what He has done and will do. Therefore, cultivate an attitude of gratitude!!
