“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
You cannot truly thank God when your mind is focused on what is yet to happen in your life. Thanksgiving comes from a proper valuation of what you have received, and the heartfelt expression of how much it means to you.
Thus, one major reason why many find it difficult to thank the Lord or show appreciation to the people through whom God blessed them, is because they are more conscious of their desires that are yet to materialize than the things that God has done for them. Your worry drowns the spirit of gratitude in you. This must however cease to be the case if you must see God’s power at work in your direction.
If the cares of this world cause you to neglect or doubt the promises of God for your life, then God is calling on you to hand over those cares to Him so He can give you peace in return. As our scriptural text shows us, do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving ,let your requests be made known unto God. Thanksgiving holds the key to your peace and the answers that are yet to come. Halleluyah!
