Live Above Your Circumstances

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. Psalm,100:4

Is your cup empty or full of gratitude today? Before you sit down and offer thanks around the dinner table, ask yourself: "Am I a complainer? Or a thanks giver?" It all comes down to perspective. Are you focusing on your blessings? Or on what you've lost in life?
It's easy to complain about circumstances -- recessions, disease, hurt, and mounting difficulties. But we should give thanks to our God who lives above the circumstances. The Old Testament saint Daniel developed a discipline of gratitude in his life while living as a prisoner separated from family and friends. Yet even through dreary days, disappointments, and disaster, Daniel was a perpetual praise giver. Daniel,6;10-11
If you've had a tough week, a tough month, or even a tough year, fill your cup full of gratitude for who God is. Viewing the scope of your life from beginning to end, God has designed a purpose for you, and He wants you to trust Him. Though your circumstances may have changed this Thanksgiving, the faithful, gracious, merciful God you serve has not. Rise above your circumstances and give thanks!

Gratitude develops faith. The surest path out of a slump is marked by the road sign "thank you, God."
