We say we are thankful with our mouths, but are we truly thankful in our hearts? It is the heart of a person that God sees. He knows the intention and motivations of everyone. (Proverbs 24:12) We cannot fool God by our words.
We have seen the Lord's goodness and received His salvation through Jesus Christ. If for only that one act of love, we should be giving continual praise regardless of our current temporary circumstances. God knows our needs and has supplied if we keep our thoughts on Him. Praise should not be based on our circumstances but on who He is.
Start giving thanks for everything good thing you have in your life, and give to the Lord those things that trouble you. You will see that the more you trust Him with your life, the more reasons He will give you to praise.
“I will praise the Lord at all times; I will constantly speak his praises. I will boast only in the Lord. Let all who are discouraged take heart. Come let us tell of the Lord’s greatness, let us exalt His name together. Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys those trust in him!” (Psalms 34:1-3, 8 NLT)
