Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit. Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle. Psa. 28:1-2

 When things aren’t going the way we hoped they would, the enemy will do all he can to make us ungrateful. We should endeavor to always have a grateful and thankful heart in everything. For the atmosphere and attitude of thanksgiving is essential for the working of the power of the Holy Spirit.

All the onslaughts of the enemy were designed for one purpose and one purpose only, to take away your grateful and thankful heart to God and replace it with a heart of dissatisfaction and complaint. Don’t allow the enemy to cause you to focus so much attention on the bad things that you neglect to give the Lord thanks for the many things He has already given you. Until you can give thanks while in your present circumstances, your circumstances will never change. You must change your attitude first before your circumstances change. You must have an attitude of gratitude for the small things the Lord has blessed you with before He blesses you with greater things.

No matter what is going on in your life this day, offer the Lord a sacrifice of praise. It’s the key which will bring power and grace to all your circumstances. It is the only way to enter the road of grace and favor. When you find it hard to hold fast to our confession of faith; just tell Him, “Lord, I believe, help my unbelief,” then lean on the Lord for the strength you need. The Lord will help you, and He will see you through.  He will restore your joy and cause you to sing praises to His name. Whatever situation you find yourself in this day, give thanks to the Lord for what He has provided. Be thankful for the provisions you have this day. Be thankful in everything, for this is the will of the Lord.


 1Th.5:18  In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Psa. 100:4  Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise; be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

Psa.118:1  O give thanks to Jehovah; for He is good; because His mercy endures forever.

Psa. 118:29  Oh give thanks to Jehovah; for He is good; for His mercy endures forever.

Heb. 12:28  Therefore, we must be thankful that we have a kingdom that cannot be shaken. Because we are thankful, we must serve God with fear and awe in a way that pleases him.

About Shearon Hurst

I've been in the ministry for over 20 years. My writing ministry has been blessing people on the internet for over 10 years with words of encouragement which I send out to strengthen and comfort those in their walk with the Lord. I can easily speak on the subject of letting go, let God and get on with your life so you can move on a higher level. Having dealt with abuse, abandonment, rejection, and disappointment; I overcame the odds against me and pressed my way forward as the Spirit of the Lord led me into a more glorious path. I have a passion for the heart of women, and can minister to the wounded and broken hearted. I can speak to married women having been there and done that... to the single again women being there. My plethora of life experiences gives value to my desire to share and help others. My love for the Lord is what drives me to take a leap of faith and lean on God’s infinite wisdom, because I know with Christ nothing is impossible.
