Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 1 December 2023 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche — Filling Your Life’s Tank With Thankfulness
TOPIC: Filling Your Life’s Tank With Thankfulness (Seeds Of Destiny 1 December 2023)
SCRIPTURE: And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. John 6:11-12.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The more thankful you are, the more you will have what to thank God for.
You are welcome to the Month of December, the last month of the year, 2023. Indeed, we serve a faithful God. He preserved us from the beginning of the year, and now we are in the last month of the year. He also crowned our days with His loving kindness and faithfulness. We give Him all the praise.
Some years ago, after an all-night service, I went to Lagos for the Diamond Jubilee of God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo. I was privileged to handle a segment of the programme.
As we were returning from Lagos to Abuja in the evening, one of our pastors in Lagos asked me, “Ah! What is happening? From the vigil, you flew straight to this program, and you are still awake and active like this?”
I told him, “I am surprised myself. I was looking for sleep but I couldn’t find it.”
The point here is, that was the help of God, and it should not be taken for granted. It was not because I knew too much. It is the help of God that makes us not to breakdown considering the kind of schedule we run. There are people who are doing nothing, but keep breaking down every day. They do nothing, yet they take drugs every day.
So, you must make up your mind to thank God for the help He has shown you and your family. There is always something to thank God for in life. The more thankful you are, the more you will have what to thank God for. Thankfulness is one key that fills your “life’s tank” with the goodness of God. Thankfulness is a seed that produces results and consequently, those results make you to continuously thank God. When you keep planting the seed of thankfulness, the things that will make you to keep thanking God will never lack.
My counsel is, continuously be on the lookout for the goodness of God in your life. Document them and thank God for them.
Remember this: The more thankful you are, the more you will have what to thank God for.
- Don’t allow your life’s tank to be empty of gratitude and appreciation to God.
- Attract God’s goodness to your life by thanking Him every day.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for showing me the Power of Thankfulness. I receive the grace to thank you in all seasons and phases of my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
