“The Lord is my strength. . . My heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.” (Psalm 28:7)
Are you battling tempting thoughts? Is the enemy enticing you to compromise Biblical Truth? Are you tempted to believe that God really doesn’t have your best interest at heart?
Do not be deceived. The best way to fight these tempting thoughts is with an attitude of gratitude. An attitude of gratitude flows from a heart of gratitude—a heart that appreciates all that God has given us. In fact, life itself is a gift from God to us for our enjoyment and pleasure.
When Paul and Silas were tossed into prison, they sang praises and hymns to God (see Acts 16). Their grateful hearts prepared the way for God to do something incredible in that Philippian jail. Had they been murmuring and grumbling about how a loving God would not let them land in such a place, they would have missed an opportunity to lead a man and his entire family to the Lord.
As we seek God more and more, we soon discover that for every temptation the enemy presents, there is a greater blessing God is preparing for us. We must remain faithful to the Lord in trying moments, pressing ahead with the knowledge that God will not withhold His best plan for our lives as long as we are putting Him first. We have every reason to have hearts filled with thanksgiving.
Prayer: Lord, please help me realize when I have an ungrateful heart and give me a heart of thanksgiving. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
