Having a thankful heart opens your eyes to perceive the work of God around you. When we see him working clearly, its increases your faith. Gratitude leads us to a cycle of continual growth, faith, joy, and more gratitude. But if we aren’t grateful for the things the Lord does, we become complacent.
In our complacency, we don’t see God working as clearly. Then, when challenges come, we aren’t accustomed to looking for the hand of god and praising Him for everything He does.
It is very easy to fall into the cycle of negativity an unthankful heart creates. During trails, an unthankful person will naturally have fear, doubt, anger, selfishness(to do whatever it takes to get out of his or her situation), and self-will (to act out of fear rather than wait for God).
Such a person will try to save himself or herself, then experience brokenness after seeing how God was taking care of him or her even as the person fretted sinfully against God. Gratitude produce growth but unthankful heart keeps a person in a state of complacency.
If you want to understand God’s will in any circumstance, then you need to pay attention to the things He’s doing. And one avenue to doing this is by the act of gratitude through praising Him. Not for what He has done but for who He
Conclusion: His. Gratitude can change your heart and your whole outlook on life. Thankfulness leads to relief and joy.
Jesus Is Lord!!!
