The Rewards of Thanking the Lord


“Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; unite my heart to fear Your name.  I will give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and will glorify Your name forever.  For Your lovingkindness toward me is great, and you have delivered my soul…”  ~ Psalm 86:12

Once a week, I share one of my bible studies with you because it will help you an your leadership.

Two of the most important words we can ever use is - Thank You!

When we use these words, it is usually because we want to acknowledge how immensely grateful we are.

Each day I live, I have to say these two words to show my appreciation to the Lord.  Before I do anything in the morning, I have to say thank you Lord.  I don’t start thinking about anything before I say the words, thank you Lord.

No one is perfect.  I am well aware that God has carried me throughout my life.  Matter fact, I wouldn’t be where I am without Him.

No matter how great we are as leaders, we need God.  If there was ever a time when we needed the Lord, it is now. When we show a grateful heart, the Lord will bless us with 3 of His rewards.

1. The Lord is the greatest mentor.  There is nothing like being taught by the ultimate expert.  God is the ultimate mentor.  He has been around since the creation of the world and knows all things.  Who wouldn’t want the Lord for a mentor?  The Lord will also reveal the right mentors you need to progress your life and business.

2. The Lord doesn’t lie.  I rather have someone tell me the truth, instead of having me guessing with lies.  It’s hard to advance your life with lies.  Choose the Lord because He always speaks truth.  In John 8:32 it says, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

3. The Lord always delivers.  God cares!  He never wants to see us fail.  He wants your life, business, and career to grow.  When we acknowledge God, He will always find a way to lift us up.  And if He cannot deliver us one way, He will do it another way.  “God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear…He will also provide a way of escape that you may be able to endure.” ~ 1 Corinthians 10:13

Don’t miss out on any of your blessings from God because of lack of appreciation.  I believe we are all thankful to the Lord, but find a way to speak these three simple words frequent and often - Thank You LORD!
