Positive Thanksgiving

The Lord gives His people strength; the Lord blesses His people with peace.—Psalm 29:11

Here is a prescription for overcoming frustration. Look for something good to come out of everything that appears bad. How I wish I could hammer this thought into the mind of every Christian. Nowadays, it is almost second nature with me to look for a positive in every negative, but it was not always so. At one time, whenever anything bad happened to me, I used to say: “Oh no, not again! Just when everything seemed to be going right! Why should this happen to me?” I learned, however, to apply this principle, and I can honestly say it has transformed my life and ministry.

This also means learning to thank God for the good that is emerging, instead of brooding over any loss that has been sustained. This positive thanksgiving will make your heart receptive to God’s power. He can do anything with a thankful heart, but He will usually do little or nothing with a complaining, self-pitying heart. It is closed to grace.

Also, find someone who is going through difficult circumstances, and help them find victory. Someone has said, “Sorrow expands the soul for joy.” For joy? Yes—the joy of being useful and creative. God uses frustrating circumstances to prune you for fruit-bearing.

And the lessons you have learned will go even deeper as you share them with others. Expression deepens impression. If you incorporate your sorrows, they will multiply. And if you incorporate your blessings, they too will multiply. Learn this secret, and it will help you stay spiritually on top—no matter what.


O God, help me not to be a whiner but a worshiper. Help me to cultivate an attitude of thanksgiving in all things—for I know that all things serve. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
