Thankful Hearts

Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish. John 6:11

Are you in need of something today that God has not provided? When we read the story of Jesus feeding the 5,000 on only 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish, we should take note how he asked God. Jesus didn’t go into a long drawn out prayer with God, he gave thanks to God and then he provided. See God already knows our needs before we ask for them (Matthew 6:8)

Instead of continually beg God for a specific need; why not first come to him with thanksgiving for the things he has already provided? When we learn to truly trust in God, we can have the peace of God by knowing he will provide. Am I saying we should never ask for anything specific? No because your Heavenly Father wants to hear from you and it pleases him to give it to you. (Luke 12:32) However we need to have a thankful heart first. We can’t always be in a state of need that is not true faith.

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

Whatever storm you may be facing or thing you may be lacking, we need to have the faith that God will provide all of our needs. When we realize this, and believe it, we can have the Peace of God in the Eye of the Storm. There is nothing impossible with God (Matthew 19:26) Be thankful today for your present blessings and your Father will be pleased to provide for you tomorrow in Jesus Name Amen
