Oftentimes we can feel like the Israelites wandering in the vast wilderness: lost, confused, and overwhelmed. It’s easy to focus on the negatives of every situation, of the things that never go your way. However, God reminded the Israelites to remember His great works and faithfulness. Their complaining, rebelling, and wandering emanated from the fact that they forgot the unconditional love that God never fails to give. He has a plan for each one of us, all we need to do is trust in His mighty hand and remember His wonderful deeds.
The Bible calls us to be thankful and let the message of Christ dwell among us richly as we admonish each other with gratitude in our hearts (Colossians 3:15-16). The Lord has given us unending blessings, providing us with hope in difficult times. He shares His perfect grace and ensures eternal life through His son.
Even in the most distressing and anxious times, God gives us victory when we trust in His power and love. Be grateful that He has a plan for your life, even if it is unexpected. Our prayers never go unheard; He is with you to strengthen and guide you.
Gratitude in the Lord deepens our faith and brings us joy in Him, rather than in the uncertain world. Gratitude brings everlasting peace, knowing that God’s hand is in all circumstances. Gratitude draws us closer to God, closer to His undeserved mercy and grace. Remember always to not be anxious about the cares of this world, but to set your eyes on Christ and His eternal gift of salvation. Count your many blessings and praise God for the strength and hope that He gives His children. He will help you see the goodness all around you.
