Morning Thought: Thanksgiving is one of the pillars of entering into God’s presence. Through thanksgiving we recognise what God has given. We realise that he laid down his life through Jesus Christ to make a way for us to be united with him. He has held nothing back. Thanksgiving sees God in both the small and the big. When you thank God you are delivered from a spirit of poverty. It dawns on you that you’re a recipient of the riches of God’s grace. Thanksgiving sharpens your focus so that you see God’s goodness, rather than the enemy’s destruction. “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations” (Psalm 100:4-5, NIV).
