Devotional: The Essence of Gratitude

Know and fully recognize with gratitude that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are his]. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Psalm 100:3 AMP

"True Gratitude values a relationship rather than any benefit made possible by the relationship. True gratitude remains even when nothing is received, and one finds the ability to 'trust even when the moment seems devoid of immediate fulfillment." -Ravi Z

Today I learned that gratitude and trust go together. Remembering from experience the goodness and wisdom of God in my life, I ought to remain grateful in everything and in all situations. In true gratitude, I am able to trust His ways no matter what situation arises, even i f things are currently not what i desire.

I ask the Spirit to help me nurture a grateful heart.
