A friend and I went to meet one of my spiritual fathers whose church is based in UK. He blessed us with some gifts and we couldn’t but thank him for his kindness and thoughtfulness. I called him the next morning, again, to thank him for his generosity and to also express how my friend was dumbfounded at his act. I would never forget what he said in response that “son, do you know that appreciation is an application for greater things? The more thankful you are about what you have received, the more blessings that come your way“.
I thought about this for a while and realized that his statement was one thing I needed for greater miracles. The more I thank God for what I have, the more blessings he pours my way. It works.
Each of us has got at least one thing to be thankful for. The easiest part is it takes less than a minute to say Thank You Lord. You don’t have to travel or pay to talk to God. You also don’t have to wait in line to talk to Him. No appointment, etc. All you have to do is to pause, lift your hands, and say thank You Father for your unfailing love and faithfulness. Show how thankful you are for everything He has done in your life, plus family and friends.
As you show your appreciation, it will pave way for God to do more great things in your life (in this year and years to come) because He knows that you would always return with praise.
