Giving thanks always for all things unto 
God and the Father in the name of our 
Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 5:20). 
wednesday 18
Some people don’t know the value and power 
of a grateful heart; therefore, they complain 
over everything. If they aren’t bemoaning the economic 
situation, they’re complaining about the pains in their 
bodies or about some other problem. They’re hardly 
ever happy, because they’re blind to all the good things 
happening in, and around them, for which they ought 
to be grateful. 
There’re many who don’t appreciate or even 
recognise the progress they’ve made or the blessings of 
God in their lives. Life itself is a gift from God to enjoy 
every day; that you can even think that you deserve 
better is a blessing. So, look into your life and see that 
there’s a lot to be grateful for. 
Perhaps you’ve learnt something new; your 
knowledge and understanding of God’s Word have 
improved; your prayer life has become richer; all these 
and more are important blessings to be grateful for, 
and excited about. The ministry and work of the Holy 
Spirit in your life, for example, is far greater than any 
physical or material blessing you could ever get. In 
fact, it’s what will give rise to other material blessings 
in your life. 
True happiness in life transcends having a lot of 
money. There’ve been many who had a lot of money 
and all that money could buy, yet they were depressed, 
unhappy and ended up destroying themselves. In 
Luke 12:15, Jesus said,  “…Take heed, and beware of 
covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the 
abundance of the things which he possesseth.” 
You’re never going to be satisfied because you 
have so much; therefore, learn to be content and 
grateful for all that the Lord is to you, has made you, 
and made available to you. Serve Him joyfully, putting 
Him first in your life. Be thankful, and excited about 
your life in Christ: His glory and righteousness that you 
are, and exude, as well as His power, wisdom, and 
grace by which you live triumphantly every day.
Blessed Lord, from the depth of my heart, I’m grateful 
to you; you mean more than the world to me. I 
acknowledge your grace, mercy, wisdom and power 
by which I live triumphantly today, prospering in all 
that I do. I worship you for making my life glorious, 
filling me with your precious Spirit, who is to me all 
the advantage I need in life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
1 Thessalonians 5:18; Ephesians 5:20; 1 Chronicles 16:34
