In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
WRITE DOWN THREE THINGS YOU’RE THANKFUL FOR. Thank God for everything you can think of. The atmosphere of gratitude can foster amazing things. For starters, it breaks us out of selfish moodiness and prepares the way for us to enter into praise. As we accumulate things to be thankful for, we will get an increased awareness of God’s grace.
WRITE DOWN TWO BREAKTHROUGHS THAT SEEMED INSURMOUNTABLE, BUT GOD TURNED THEM AROUND. Faith comes by hearing the Word and it involves corresponding action. The Bible tells us consistently to stir up ourselves by way of reminder. Take time to build your faith in the Word of God and remember to thank God daily for past victories and future breakthroughs.
WRITE DOWN TWO THINGS IN PROCESS THAT YOU ARE BELIEVING GOD FOR. No one wants you to succeed more than Jesus does. He knows the challenges you will face and He understands every emotion you will ever have. He will supply clear, practical answers to help you face off with life’s problems.
