The holiday season is in full-force! As Thanksgiving approaches, I see many across my Facebook feed participating in daily noting what they are thankful for. It’s a powerful force in our lives when we count our blessings and give thanks.
My friend always says “There’s nothing that expresses faith more than an attitude of gratitude.” I’ve found that the inverse is also true – the highest form of unbelief is murmuring and complaining. Complaining is always against people and situations, but murmuring is a spirit that is always directed towards God, declaring Him “too small” to bring victory to our situation. Murmuring and complaining are canceled through an attitude of gratitude!
Many people live their lives feeling as if they just can’t find a breakthrough. They feel like there is a glass ceiling or lid keeping them from experiencing the purpose and plan God set for them. There’s one key that unlocks all of those things in our lives – a heart of thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is always our starting point!
Our entrance into God’s economy begins with thanksgiving. The Message Bible, in Psalm 100, calls thanksgiving “the password” to unlocking God’s blessing for our lives.
If you begin with gratitude, mountains begin to become molehills. Gratitude sanctifies the atmosphere and attracts God’s presence into our situation, and we know – where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is victory!
Let this Thanksgiving season be a launch pad to a new dimension of faith in God for your life!
