READ: James 1:17 Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.
Have you ever been around a chronic complainer? It's not fun!! It is our human nature to complain when things just don't go right in life. But when we complain we are decreasing God's multiplication process (remember there is power in our words!).
We have so many blessings in life - sometimes we get so busy that we don't even recognize the obvious ones. Such as: family, friends, a roof over our heads, food and clothing, job, transportation, giftings/talents, and experiences that are unique to us. It is true that EVERY GOOD THING IN YOUR LIFE CAME FROM GOD ABOVE. When you decide to start THANKING HIM for even the tiniest, smallest thing - this releases the power of multiplication and you will in turn receive MORE BLESSINGS.
Blessings can be like a seed - when you plant a seed - it grows. Likewise, when you take your blessings and you SHARE them with others - there is power in the sharing and blessings GROW.
Today, recognize ALL THE MANY blessings that God has given you and THANK HIM for them!! Praise will release the POWER OF GOD into your life.
What we do with our blessings has everything to do with whether our blessings grow or diminish.
As Christians we are especially a BLESSED people. The Word tells us that we are united with Christ. There are all sorts of GREAT BLESSINGS that come along with being His Child. Ephesians 1:3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.
Are you certain you are a child of God? If not - please talk to a trusted Christian friend, pastor or me. I'd be happy to talk with you.
