Congratulations! Happy new month to you all. I’m glad to see you again in June. This day is a day of thanksgiving. Seize this opportunity to look back at what God has done for you and give thanks. Appreciate God for the grace to be well and alive; thank him for replacing failure with success, weakness with strength, hunger with abundance, breakthrough in place of breakdown.
This blog has never known any set back since inspection. We have witnessed unprecedented numbers of viewers, followers, likes and comments in May. Doubled of its April’s statistics. This is a confirmation of God’s presence with us. God will always leave us with proofs.
There are some categories of people who wouldn’t have to ask anything before God rewards them. These are the categories of thanks giver. Appreciation is cheapest means to get things from God.
There is different between thanks and praise. We just don’t thank God for what He has done for us, we thank God to commit him to continue to rewards us. We praise God for his person, for who he is.
These spiritual activities are not something we do occasionally or when God has done something spectacular. We must let thanksgiving and praise become part and parcel of us by living a praise lifestyle.
As we all known that multiplication is a function of appreciation, or better still, appreciation equals multiplication. Nothing goes down acknowledging God. We must not forget that God is the one behind the expansion in every realm of our existence. Hence, we must not take him for granted and not to think that it is our power and smartness that made things came to be.
We must not forget that those who were smarter than us are in the grave. Breath is the only thing its requires to give praise and thanks. “Let everything that hath breath praise lord.” PS.150:6. You slept, you woke up, give thanks. You are not in the psychiatric hospital, you are not dead you are alive, give thanks.
Do you know that there are so many things that we take for granted? Do you know that there are some people who can’t swallow a lump food? But thank God that ours is not the case.
It doesn’t leave you with much choice, praise is commandment. “Let everything that hath breath praise God.” Ps.150:6. This is not something you need to think about or negotiate. You will be fretful if you are not joyful. You are not sad because things are bad, things are bad because you are sad. If you see an angry man frowning is face, telling you that he is thinking, it is a lie, he is not thinking, he is foolish.
Your tears and cries will not move God. Get God moved by praising him. Your being heavy and despondent will not produce any result. When Jesus cried, nothing happened, he was captured and mocked by the enemies. You can’t think straight when you cry.
Try to smile to somebody today, a smile is worth than a million dollars. God hates grumblers and complainers, they are programmed for destructions. “Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyers.” 1Cor.10:10
