GRATITUDE UNLOCKS BLESSINGS!Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran

”… And be thankful.”     (Colossians 3:15)

The Dhinakarans My dearly Beloved,

Saying a simple “thank you” can touch any person’s heart. Even the most hardhearted of all will succumb these words. But do we apply this beautiful rule to our spiritual lives as well. The God who gave His all to save and redeem the human race from the condemnation of sins, deserves it the most. One praise from the heart of even the most wicked person on Earth to Lord Most High can touch His heart. But the truth of the matter is these two words can only be uttered by the one who is humbles.

Here is an incident that took place in the land of South Africa. There was a robbery in a house. Nine robbers had entered that house. The alarm in the house-owner’s mobile alerted him of the intrusion while he had gone off to a nearby place. He rushed back home in his car. The eight robbers, upon hearing the owner’s entry, escaped by scaling over the fence. But one of them got caught. There was a big swimming pool at the back of the house. When this robber tried to escape through that way, the house owner pushed him hard into the swimming pool. When he realized that the robber did not know swimming, the owner jumped in and saved that robber. Assuming that the robber would thank him for that and would betray the other eight, he was in for a shock. The robber brandished a knife before him and threatened to kill him.

Beloved, this is the nature of the world; it gives you wickedness instead of gratification. However, let us being children of God praise Him and be thankful to Him always for all that He has done for us. We see in the Bible as, “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.” (Hebrews 12:28)

We, who are going to receive a kingdom from Him, should be even more grateful to the Lord God Jehovah! Walking in reverence and godly fear unlocks His immeasurable blessings. There is power in gratitude. Let us hold on to this key and touch the heart of our heavenly Father in any adverse situation we may be in right now. Let experience the divine joy it is to praise the Lord and live an abundant life!
