Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; Talk of all His wondrous works! Psalm 105:2
We all would have a lot of history to be thankful to God about. But many times, we neglect to remember God’s marvelous work in our lives. This eventually causes our mind to lose hope in life.
We need to ensure that our mind be always alert in giving thanks to God. It’s easy to forget the Lord’s goodness to us. Instead of focusing on what the Lord has done and who He is to us, we can find ourselves focusing on what we do not have, comparing ourselves with others and being ungrateful.
We need to shift our focus to remember the great things that He has performed in our lives. Talk about them to your family and friends whenever there is an opportunity in such a way that the hearers would put their trust in God. Recognize the deeds of God, celebrate God’s wonderful works with songs and hymns. Do not stop praising God even in your difficult times. Remembering God’s goodness helps us to go through the tough times with a strong sense of hope and courage and an increased faith in God.
Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise …and do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. (Hebrews 13:15-16)
