“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us”. (Psa 67:5-6)
There is a whole lot of truth in the wise saying that says “if a child is grateful for the gift he was given yesterday he will receive another gift another time”. The thankful are always thoughtful in positive ways that make them to focus on what they have received so far from God and not what they are have not yet received. Actually, the focus is not really on His gifts, but His personality that guarantees us of His love and care. To every one, there are always two lists before God when it comes to our prayers. There is a list of what He has done and also a list of what he has not done yet according to our own literal records. Out of what He has done and He and He is still doing, there are things we did not pray about at all. We just woke up to know he has done something of which are the critical things of life.
When you pray, God takes your answers from his store house in heaven to give you, but when you praise Him deep enough, he brings the store house down to you and asks you to take anything and everything you need. That was what He did for Solomon after he sacrificed thousand and of offerings and the priests must have blown the trumpets to God in worship so resoundingly.
“And the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there; for that was the great high place: a thousand burnt offerings did Solomon offer upon that altar. In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee”. (1Ki 3:4-5)
Has God done something for you? If your answer is yes then you are already a candidate for divine help. Just focus on those things and be grateful. Focus on His personality as described in the bible. Express your gratitude with songs, dancing everyway from the depth of your heart. You will see God do more for you.
God bless you big.
