Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
I Thessalonians 5:18 (NLT)
In his book The Power Of Habit, Charles Duhigg talks about “keystone habits.” This is a habit that brings about a cascade of changes resulting in a huge outcome. Exercise is a keystone habit. It affects our energy, attitudes, health, body image, many things that can result in a big change in our life. The habit of planning our day the night before can cause many small behaviors that result in significant change. Thankfulness is a Spiritual Keystone Habit. Can you imagine what would happen in your life if you created a habit of thankfulness? You would be more open to God’s direction. You would stop letting anger, worry and fear derail your life. You would be more optimistic and open to opportunities to move through your situations instead of getting stuck in them. Thankfulness is a spiritual discipline that will change everything! But more than that, giving thanks in all our circumstances is God’s will for your life! Today begin to develop the keystone habit of thankfulness.
Father, how often I react to life with negativity and discouragement. I know that You want me to give thanks in all things but so often I fail. Today, help me Lord build the habit of praise and thankfulness so my life will glorify You.
