Let Your Faith Say “Thank you!”
By Joel Osteen - Nov 28, 2014

Wouldn't it be great to have Thanksgiving 365 days a year?! We can because Thanksgiving isn't just a holiday; it's an attitude of the heart. We celebrate every day because no matter what is going on in life, we can find a reason to thank God.

Having an attitude of thanksgiving all depends on what you choose to focus on. You can either focus on your problems, or you can focus on your blessings. The question is: Do you want more problems, or do you want more blessings? Living with an attitude of gratitude means that you don't just thank God for what He did in the past, but you also thank Him for what He will do in the future. You thank Him for opening new doors. You thank Him for increasing you. You thank Him for bringing the right people into your life.

When we thank God in advance, that's really a declaration of faith. Your thanks is saying, "God, I'm so sure of Your goodness, I'm so sure that You're working in my life that I'm going to thank You right now for what You are going to do tomorrow!" Remember, faith is what pleases God. Faith is what moves Him. Faith is what opens the door for His promises to enter your life. Today and every day have an attitude of gratitude and let your faith say thank you!

"O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever!" (1 Chronicles 16:34, AMP)
