WORD FOCUS: SHOW YOUR GRATITUDE
TEXT: Psalms 107:8 “Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!…”
The Psalmist writes, ‘Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord, for his goodness…’ Notice the word ‘would.’ A thankful attitude is a choice you make regardless of the situation. You choose your attitude just like you choose the food you eat and the clothes you wear each day. And there’s plenty to be grateful for. You say, ‘Yes, but there’s plenty to complain about too.’ The point exactly so you have a choice to make! The Psalmist in this chapter speaks of four different types of people in distress and how God rescues them – wanderers, prisoners, the distressed and the storm tossed.
No matter how extreme our calamity, God is able to help us. Our gratitude should not fluctuate with our circumstances or feeling. Your attitude is simply the decision you make about how you’re going to approach things. Be grateful at all times.
