Too much can not be said about being grateful to the Lord.
Psalm 118:21 I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me,
And You have become my salvation.
Have you thanked the Lord for what He has done in your life?
Psalm 30:12 That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
No one makes it on their own. There are always other people that the Lord has used who helped you get where you are today. The Lord is for you through those who help you.
Psalm 118:7a The Lord is for me among those who help me;
Have you recently or ever thanked the Lord for the people who have helped you in your relationship with the Lord and who have helped you in life?
I Thessalonians 1:2 We give thanks to God always for all of you, making mention of you in our prayers;
A lack of thanksgiving in one’s life is a lack of God in that person’s life. Ungratefulness is a sign of ungodliness.
Romans 1:21 For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks,
Give thanks to the Lord for what He has done and give thanks to the Lord for the people that He has brought into you life and who have helped you. Thanksgiving is a great encouragement to those who have loved you and pointed you to the Lord.
Hebrews 13:7a Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you;
Remember those who have diligently labored among you and show appreciation to them. When you show appreciation to someone then it is a confirmation to them that what they did met a need in your life or made a difference. People don’t know if what they do makes any difference at all unless they are told.
I Thessalonians 5:12 But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction,
Has the Lord helped you through anyone else? Take the time and effort to thank them. Thanksgiving is a gift that you can give to the one who receives the appreciation. We are not to do anything for the gift of being thanked but when it is received then it is a great encouragement to continue helping others.
