Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. – Psalms 100:4 NIV
The Lord asks us to praise Him and in everything give thanks, no matter how difficult the situation may seem to us at the time.
Jesus sees the big picture. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. Nothing surprises Him.
When we find ourselves grumbling and complaining, we must remember how privileged we are to be the children of God. We are truly blessed, and thankfulness could become our natural state. We can remember to thank Him in every situation, because our God is greater than any problem. Amen.
