HINDRANCES TO EFFECTIVE THANKSGIVING (2) - 2 SAMUEL 6:14-23, ACTS 12:21-23

Share

 

Today, we will continue to look at hindrances to an effective thanksgiving life. 

1. Seeing what God has done as a right. 

Children of people that God has blessed tend to see what God has done as a right. They tend to take a lot for granted, so parents must deliberately teach them and train them to thank people. There are some people that have grown up in such an atmosphere and believe that life owes you. Be the one that opens the door of blessings of God for people.

2. Pride

When you are not used to receiving help from people, there is a tendency for you not to thank people well and not to thank God. There are people that say ‘why should I pray, what should I pray about, I don’t understand what you are praying about.’

Listen, praying does not show that we are weak. Sometimes, when people talk about believers, they always talk as if we are illiterate people or half-brained idiots. Some of the people saying that, were failures in school that we went together. But because he has a pen to write and he has a platform to say anything, he says such foolish things. Don’t let such people stop your thanksgiving. 

Pride keeps you from doing thanksgiving. There is nothing like a self-made man. Today is for God-made people like David, like Mary, not for people like Michal. When you think that you deserve things that are done for you by another person, you will not thank God enough. Get rid of pride, and don’t let pride affect you.

 

PRAYER: Lord, deliver me from any form of pride in my life in Jesus name. Help me always acknowledge your doings in my life. Amen!
