An Attitude of Gratitude


Instead of experiencing only a short-lived burst of gratitude, let this pleasure flow freely! Cultivate an attitude of grateful joy.

I want you to linger in gratitude. This is a most delightful place—where the Joy of My Presence shines warmly upon you. You often pray fervently for something until you receive the answer you desire. When I grant your request, you respond joyfully and thankfully. But your tendency is to move on rather quickly to the next matter. I want you to remain for a while in an attitude of grateful Joy. Instead of experiencing only a short-lived burst of gratitude, let this pleasure flow freely into the future by training yourself to recall what I have done. One way is to tell others about it. This blesses both them and you, and it pleases Me. Another way is to write down the prayer-answer someplace where you will see it again and again.

Keep bringing your gratitude to Me. This thankfulness will bless you doubly—with happy memories of answered prayer and with the delight of sharing Joy with Me.

Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. -Psalm 95:2 NKJV

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. -1 Corinthians 15:57

Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth. -1 Chronicles 16:12 NKJV
