To complain is to call pain; those who murmur never see more; and it is only great fools that are never grateful
SCRIPTURE: O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth forever. 1 Chronicles 16:34
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To complain is to call pain; those who murmur never see more; and it is only great fools that are never grateful
Gratitude is the quality of being thankful. It is the readiness to show appreciation in return for kindness received. Greatness on the other hand is the quality of being great, eminent or prominent in size, quality or achievement. Greatness implies importance and fame, power or success.
There is an undeniable connection between gratitude and greatness. Gratitude is a provoker of greatness. Anywhere you see gratitude, greatness will manifest automatically. On the other hand, ingratitude is a diminishing factor and an eternal enemy of greatness. That is why it is only great fools that are never grateful.
The truth is, those who murmur never see more and to complain is to call pain. Gratitude is the character of the great. It is not possible for someone to be genuinely grateful to God and end small in life.
Gratitude focuses on who God is and what He means to us. If we wait for what God will do before we can be grateful to Him, we wait too long.
Gratitude and grumbling are diametrically opposed; the choice for gratitude is the choice against grumbling. Gratitude is the high way to great altitude in life. It is not possible to be grateful and be grounded in life. The garment of praise is a cure for littleness in life.
I prophesy on you the baptism of the spirit of gratitude in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: To complain is to call pain; those who murmur never see more; and it is only great-fools that are never grateful
