SHM REFLECTIONS_Heart Of Gratitude.

  

🎵Grateful, so grateful, for all you that you have done. I am so grateful, for all you have done. Jehovah, you have been so good to me … 🎵 
Woke up today singing this song in my spirit. It’s a song by Sinach, one of my favorite gospel artistes. And it got me thinking during my quiet moment –
How really appreciative is man of God’s mercies? My friend, do you have any reason to be grateful to God? Or do you think He has not done anything for you recently, or at all? This feeling is easy to adopt because we live in a past-paced world where it is everyone for himself, and not necessarily God for us all! We live in a world where we harp on the failures, the contradictions of our world rather than the positives.
So, do you have cause to be grateful?No? Let me remind you of three (3) reasons why you should be – 
(1) You are alive! A living dog is better than a dead lion! That you are still here shows your tomorrow can still be alright; and with a heart of gratitude God will make those things that were not as though they already were in your life! 
(2) God can never change. He is immutable. So, if He’s blessed, favored and prospered some people, He is able to do same for you. All you need to do is align yourself with Him and His principles. How? Because He hears the cry of the righteous, come to Him today with a pertinent heart, accept Him and begin the process of living by His Word. It is as sure as daylight that your story will change; as He changed mine!
(3) After step 2 above, an attitude of praise (which every grateful heart must learn; as no one is born with it) will bring Him into your situation. It works all the time – not just for David, not just for Jehoshaphat, not just for Paul & Silas! It works for people like me and you too. Why? Because He inhabits the praises of His people! You and I are the new Israel!
So, no more long faces, no more self recriminations – get into the gratitude groove from now on! I perceive in my spirit that someone out there is ripe for God’s help today! WOULD THAT BE YOU? 
AREN’T YOU GRATEFUL? Let Him know you are!
You shall excel. We live you!
