Being thankful unlocks the blessings of God! I am not saying that being thankful will make us rich monetarily, but it does make us rich by being grateful for what we have. I am thankful for many things while writing this post. I am thankful that God continues to bestow His grace and love upon me. I am thankful for God bringing me a beautiful wife and family. I am thankful for the church family God allows me to shepherd and I am thankful for all the people God has put into my life along the way. See this does not make me rich in the world’s eyes but in my eyes I am blessed! Wealth and prestige are great to have, yet, they have a way of fleeting. God’s Word teaches that for those of us who believe in and confess Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord, we will inherit an “unshakable kingdom”.
“Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping Him with holy fear and awe.”
Being thankful for what God has given places us into a position of worshiping Him. We become in awe of His strength and are reminded of what He is doing in our lives. Do not miss the blessing of being thankful for what God is doing in your life, family, and church! I pray you have a great November!
