TOPIC: The Power of Gratitude (4)
MEMORY VERSE(MFM Daily Devotional 6 July 2022)
1 Thessalonians 5:18 – “In everything give thanks to God: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
Giving God thanks genuinely is acknowledging that He is the Source of every good and gift and blessing in your life.
I decree perpetual open heaven and favour galore for you, henceforth, in the name of Jesus.
PRAISE & WORSHIP
Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
2 Kings 12-14:1-22; Acts 25:1-22; Psalm 81:1-7
Psalm 100:1-5 (NKJV)
1 Make a joyful shout to the Lord, [a]all you lands!
2 Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
3 Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and [b]not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
5 For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.
MFM Daily Devotional 6 July 2022 OUTLINE
Today, we will round off this discourse by looking at more benefits that accrue from giving God thanks. Gratitude leads to joy. The tree of gratitude produces the sweet fruit of joy. Whenever we realise the abundant goodness of God and we respond with thanksgiving to God, our reward will be overflowing joy.
A good example of this was when, in Psalm 126, the Hebrew exiles sang their thanks for bringing them back to Israel: “When the LORD brought back the captivity of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and out tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, The LORD has done great things for them. The LORD has done great things for us, and we are glad (Psalm 126:1-3 NKJV).
Giving God thanks also helps us to defy satan’s lies. He deceived our first parents and made them to sin against God. The Garden of Eden was perfect and it produced abundantly. Every plant in the garden but ONE had been given to Adam and Eve, yet satan focused on the one God forbade them to eat. When we focus on what we have and thank God continually for it, He will give us other things we do not have, especially if they are in His perfect will for us.

True gratitude for God and the abundance He gives protects us from caving to the enemy’s lies. Always remember God’s promise that no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly (Psalm 84:11). Giving God thanks does more for us. It helps us to guard against envy.
Believers should avoid envy like a plague. It is envy that makes us want what someone else has. A heart that is fully grateful has no room left for envy. Gratitude makes us appreciate and enjoy God’s goodness in the present. It helps us not to violate Ecclesiastes 7:10 that admonishes, “Say not, Why.
