Confident To Rest (Psalm 116:7)

Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

Psalm 116:7 (KJV)

Our soul returns to its rest when we are confident that God is handling everything that concerns us. We rest in our confidence that God has already made available what we need, and out of this quiet assurance will we see His goodness showing up in our lives. God works when we are at a place of peace.

Grace Causes Us To Be Grateful (2 Corinthians 4:15)

For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.

2 Corinthians 4:15 (NKJV)

Grace causes us to be thankful, for grace is the revelation that everything we need has already been made available. As we walk in this by faith, one day and one moment at a time, our gratitude gives glory to God. And God’s glory always shows itself in and through the lives of His people as the very manifestations of His grace, His favor and His goodness.

Nothing Hid That Shall Not Be Revealed (Mark 4:22)

For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.

Mark 4:22 (KJV)

Sooner or later God will always bring to light the hidden things of the heart. For us specifically this means that as our hearts are filled with the Word of God, as we allow the promises of God to take root in our hearts, sooner or later we will see the manifestation of all that God has put in us. Our role is to remain faithful, to not waver in the face of opposition, and to give thanks for the coming harvest of manifestation.

Offer The Sacrifice Of Praise (Hebrews 13:15)

Hebrews 13:15 (KJV)

Offering the sacrifice of praise is to praise God regardless of whether or not we feel like it in our emotions. We do not live by our emotions, but take charge over them by continually giving thanks to God for His goodness and His favor in our lives.

Maintaining A Grateful Heart (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV)

God’s will for us is that we always maintain a grateful heart. Notice that the Word says we are to give thanks in all things, not for all things. This means in all circumstances and conditions—whether they be good or bad—we can be grateful. In fact, practicing gratitude in the midst of adersity is a powerful statement of faith which says that we know that we have already been given the victory in Christ. And so whether we are on the mountaintop or in the valley, let us be thankful as we look to everything God has provided for us by His grace.
