“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!”
“This is how you deal with God. Praise Him BEFORE you are delivered. Praise Him for what is coming. Adore Him for what he is going to do. I do not think there is a sweeter song in God’s ear than the song of one who blesses Him for grace that has not yet been tasted, who blesses Him for answers that have not been received, but are sure to come.The praise for past gratitude is sweet, but even sweeter is the praise of full confidence that all will be well.” - Charles Spurgeon.
The most difficult thanks to give is thanks for an uncertain future, but God wants to use every pressure to draw us closer to Himself! Will we let Him?
"THE PRAISE FOR PAST GRATITUDE IS SWEET, BUT EVEN SWEETER IS THE PRAISE OF FULL CONFIDENCE THAT ALL WILL BE WELL."
LORD,thank you for the difficulties I will experience that will bring me closer to You. Forgive me for my lack of trust. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayers. I surrender my life to You today. There’s no better place to be than in Your hands.
