Psalms 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
No matter what trials or sufferings of this life you may endure, you must enter His courts with thanksgiving for what He did on the Cross. To be redeemed by His blood which enables you to behold Him is more than enough to generate a grateful heart. We should dance and leap with joy.
Pray with me…
Lord, please forgive me for looking more at what I do not have than what You have done for me, starting with the Cross. Lord, you have given me the open doors for eternal life. For this alone, I am most grateful ! I thank you for choosing without hesitation to lay down Your life on my behalf. Open my eyes to see and know all You have done for me. Put a guard upon my lips and anoint my speech with thankful praise.
Trials and suffering do not negate Your goodness or Your willingness to act on my behalf. Create in me a clean heart and a steadfast spirit that I might forever walk with a thankful heart. I come into Your courts today with thanksgiving and praise for the salvation of my soul. I come to behold You with a grateful heart. Amen.
