I had saved this reminder from Marsha Burns' morning email devotional, but hadn't gotten around to posting it. Now seems like an excellent time to be reminded to "give thanks in all things," and to remember the many blessings God has already given us.
Reflect and be reminded of good things. This is a season of blessing and favor, and when your heart is grateful and you express that gratitude in prayer, it opens the door for even greater blessings. Conversely, your grumbling and complaining will create spiritual barrenness, says the Lord. Take time to be thankful.
Romans 1:21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
