In this article, we are going to be looking in-depthly on the power of Gratitude.
If you are alive and you can still boldly say you don’t have a Testimony from God, I’m sorry if this may hurt you but you’re a liar and that implies the Devil is your Father…. For the Bible tells us that the Devil is a Liar and the Father of all Liars (John 8:44).
See, there is no Testimony greater than Life. The reason why you can still say of all this your needs, wants, desires, is because you’re alive. A dead man does not know all of this things, neither can he crave for the them.
Perhaps, Life is and forever remains the greatest gift of God to man apart salvation.
However, we come back to what we have, Power of Gratitude.
What is Gratitude?
Gratitude in a nutshell is appreciation for a good done to you by another. That’s it, you can add yours but this is just the simple definition.
And not just that, there is this powerful thing about Gratitude we want to single out in this study. However I called it, the Power of Gratitude.
The question is, can there be any profit or gain in one being Grateful? Is there any reason we should embrace it apart from it primary purpose of appreciating humanity or/and Divinity.
Gratitude, if you may wish to know pave better way for more better things to come and that’s it power, which we’ll look into very quickly below.
Have you discovered that when Jesus was teaching or educating his Disciples on how to pray he first told them… Our father which art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name… (Matt 6:9)
Can you see that, Hallowed be thy name”
That’s Gratitude, that’s appreciation, that’s Thanksgiving. Remember in the later part of the education or lesson, he made them know they should place they request or need. However, he continued… Give us this days our daily bread (Matt 9:11).
Have you asked yourself, why did Jesus Started the way he did and then added request afterwards? Why not the other way round?
Remember, Apostle Paul in the letter to the Philippines throw more light to this,
“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God – Philippians 4:6
Can you see that, …With Thanksgiving let your request be made know to God”
Thanksgiving, Gratitude, Appreciation is a tool for accessing more from God.
If we can tell ourselves the truth, we tend to do more good for people when we’re praise for the previous we have done.
An ungrateful boss no matter how much he pays his subordinates or workers will never get much input from them, if not by Praise and Gratitude for their efforts so far.

Being Grateful is just simple and the easiest way to attracting the heart of men and even God for more of his Goodness.
