Inspired by . . . Grateful Series IV: Every Blessing Turned to Praise
So I will bless You as long as I live; in Your name I will lift up my hands. Psa 63:4
Being able to praise God in both trial and blessing is evidence of a grateful heart.
In moments of difficulty, when He is all we have, hopefully we come to realize that He is all we need.
Failure to give praise can open the door to pride and feelings of entitlement. We can start thinking that we deserve, or have earned our blessings on our own merit.
This is a dangerous path, my friend.
Instead, when we give praise to God, and acknowledge Him as the Giver of all good gifts, we open the door wide for Him to do abundantly more than we could ever ask or imagine!
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Eph 3:20-21
Wishing you and your
family a blessed Thanksgiving!
