God is good.
And one of the ways to see His goodness in greater measures is to carry a heart that learns to be grateful.
I think gratefulness is a choice for us to make irrespective of circumstances. We’ve got to take a conscious effort to constantly remind ourselves of how gracious God has been to us. This is us choosing to reposition ourselves to a better perspective of what God has already done rather than fixating on what He hasn’t yet revealed. This repositioning of ourselves brings forth change within us from the inside-out and allows us to see His hands at work with a fresh perspective. It also propels us to a lifestyle of worship, even in the lion’s den.
Everything that He’s given to You by Grace is not by coincidence, but it’s because He chose to give us the best-Life in abundance. A good Father who gives good gifts and whose grace abounds in deepest waters. He strove to give us a yoke that is easy and a burden that is light – a life worth living.
So can we be a little more grateful for the little that we have? For the Bible says,
Better a little with the fear of the Lord than great wealth with turmoil. -Proverbs 15:16
This fear doesn’t talk about the kind of fear that the world gives, But it’s about you being in Godly awe of His goodness, which propels you to respond in ‘reverential fear’. He’s a good God, and His goodness is worth the tasting! He is faithful to finish what He has started.
