Giving Thanks First


Giving thanks first is a simple thing that can change everything. It changes your outlook and your attitude. It invites God in to do a miracle.

Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks to God, and distributed them to the people. Afterward he did the same with the fish. And they all ate as much as they wanted.

‭‭John‬ ‭6:11 ‭NLT‬‬

Instead of looking at the enormity of what He needed, Jesus gave thanks first for the little that had been provided.

Jesus did that a lot. He gave thanks first.

It is a game changer because it has nothing to do with what you actually have in your hands but in what God can do with it.

It is how you take what little you have and ask God to bless it, multiply it and use it to bless others.

Don’t wait to give thanks until you have everything you need, give thanks for what you have now, no matter how small it seems. God can use it to do more than you could possible imagine.

May your day be filled with moments of giving thanks before you have what you need, life transforming hope in what God can do with it and heaven sent resources to do what God has called you to do.

What are you giving thanks first for today?
