Bible Ballistics: BBs #76 Thank Who????
I pray that you’re having a good week, and this Friday finds you looking up and thanking God for all His marvelous grace and provision. Although we see and hear of so much chaos going on around us—our God still reigns in ALL.
We must keep an attitude of gratitude.
Gratitude: ‘the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness’.
When our hearts are full of gratitude it short-circuits a lot of other things—anger, bitterness, frustration, greed, fear, and the list could go on.
“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” Romans 8:31-32
All that we need, to grow and live for Jesus! (Also see 2 Peter 1:3)
God is for YOU. When you belong to Jesus, God is for YOU—and He cares about every thing in your life and has promised to stay the course. We can be confident and not fear our circumstances. How? With trust in and gratitude towards Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” Hebrews 13:5-6
I can be confident in my Lord—
bringing boldness to my/your life
and helping us to stand
in every circumstance.
Remembering that God is always at work around us.
So? Here’s our shot for today.
maintain your attitude of gratitude,
and press on with Jesus.
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
