“And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.”
Our opening scripture shows us that ingratitude can lead to death because that was what caused many of the Israelites to die in the wilderness.
How grateful are you? Are you angry and ungrateful to God because you have not gotten your Masters certificate yet? Why don’t you be grateful that at least you have your BSC or your HND certificate? Do not allow ingratitude to blind you from seeing what God has already done for you. As you thank Him for what He had done in the past instead of complaining about the present, He would cause you to go forward.
Are you being ungrateful to God because you are not yet a graduate? No, be grateful that at least you are through with your secondary school education. There are many who do not have the opportunity to even finish their secondary school education. How grateful are you?
A man was complaining that he had no shoes until he found someone who had no legs, it was then he saw a reason to be grateful to God for his legs. When last did you thank God for the meal before you?
I encourage you to always remember to be grateful because wherever you find gratitude, you will find increase. I heard a billionaire say that one thing he does every day is to write things to be grateful for. Are you that way? I’ve also observed that even the believers that are doing very well in ministry are very grateful people. Until you learn the attitude of gratitude as an individual, you are likely to suffer frustration.
With the list you wrote down yesterday, express gratitude to God by reading out those things in praise and thanksgiving to God.
