Let’s start this blog with a definition of Altitude: The height of anything above a given planetary reference plane, especially above sea level on earth. extent or distance upward; height. a high place or region: mountain altitudes. High or important position, rank, etc. So, I ask, do you want to go higher, do you want to soar above the height of any circumstance you may face? Thanksgiving is one of the surest ways of ascending to these incredible heights during your life here on earth. God’s will in all circumstances is Thanksgiving. Give thanks because you trust that those very circumstances come from the powerful and gracious hand of the covenant-making and covenant-keeping God. Thanksgiving is the way to acknowledge that God is accomplishing His desire for you, even when you cannot clearly see what he is doing. To give thanks is to ask and receive in the same breath!
HEAR AND OBEY THE WORD!
Be careful about nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God (Philippians 4:6)
I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving and will call upon the name of the Lord (Psalm 116:17).
But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that which I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord (Jonah 2:9)
Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving (Colossians 2:7)
Continue in prayer and watch in the same with thanksgiving (Colossians 4:2)
Remember your attitude (thankfulness) will determine your altitude. Make thanksgiving in all things a holy habit!
