Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. – Psalms 100:4 (KJV).
I meditated on this Scripture yesterday. God started speaking to me about how thanksgiving is a heart issue. An attitude of the heart.
He brought me back to the story of the children of Israel while they wandered in the wilderness for forty years. He told me that they focused on what they didn’t have. They complained about the bitter water and about having no meat.
He explained to me that if they had been thankful for what they did have, God would have been more than happy to supply what they didn’t have in His timing, not theirs, without sorrow.
Many of us, including myself, are guilty of complaining about what we don’t have and not being thankful for what we do. The more we are thankful for what we do have, the more our hearts’ attitudes will change…and we will find we have every thing we need and a whole lot more.
