No matter what is going on in life, you can find a reason to thank God.
What comes out of your mouth, is what comes into your life, everyday everyone of us, make a choice of whether or not we will have a good day.
TBS.(the bible says) everyday we wake up with a choice,
Choose ye this day whom you will serve, will it be God or man, the choice is yours?
Whether most people will admit it or not, happiness is a state of mind and a choice that we make on a daily basis,
for some reason a lot of people, for what ever their reasoning is, choose not to live there.
Positive thoughts, bring about positive results! Negative thoughts, bring about negative results.
How many like positive results?
TBS. Be cheerful no matter what happens.
You can either focus on the problems in life, or you can focus on the blessings.
The question is: do you want more problems, or do you want more blessings?
Everyone wants more Blessings in life, for their prayers to be answered, for their needs to be met.
And you say, if I had more blessings and all my prayers answered, I would definitely be more happy, that would give me something to smile about.
Would that do it for you? You already have access to the abundant life God has promised you, are you participating?
TBS. to pray, or to praise Him all the time; to thank God no matter what happens.
This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.
If your living and constantly worried about what’s happening, or not happening in your life,
Because you think its something that you can control yourself,
I’ve got news for you and its not good, you never will experience all that God has for you!
As long as you make about what you are capable of on your own!
You see, no one has a hard time praising God, no matter what’s happening,
as long as they like, what it is that’s happening to them.
Its when your able to praise and thank Him in the midst of the storm,
and thank God and trust Him no matter what happens, or what the outcome is,
That’s where God wants you and that’s the way, God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.
Because He knows when you live there, your in the Jesus zone, in the safety zone, under the shelter of care
And no matter what comes your way, your not going to budge, your not going to be dissuaded,
you will trust Him that He will take care of it, regardless of what it is!
That means, no matter what you are facing today, no matter what’s going on in the world around you,
*no matter what anybody says, friends or foes
*no matter what the media says,
*no matter what the economic advisors say,
*no matter your doctor is saying,
*no matter what your family is saying,
*no matter what your body is saying
you should always be thanking and praising God, because the victory has already be won,
the blood of Jesus has already made us victorious over every situation!
Jerm. 17:7-8 NKJ
7. “ Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
And whose hope is the LORD.
8. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved
Just like a tree that’s planted by the water’s, I shall not be moved!
Christians have been singing about the answers, that their in need of for years and years,
And at some point, one has to ask themselves, do I really believe what I have heard and sang about for years and years?
Or is it just words on a piece of paper?
Will you always feel like singing a praise song to God?
When you get the news and the challenge you are sitting there facing, is like a mountain parked on your front door step,
You probably won’t feel all that much like singing anything but the blues,
You see though, the blues, just makes it about you’s,
And that’s not where the answer lies, the answer is in your Praise, Praise God!
