Gratitude as the key to multiplication!

in #steemchurch2 years ago

Dear Community! Dear friends!

I thank God for the life of each one of you and our Family! The heart of God is touched when we love what He loves, when we put aside what He rejects (The sin)

In the Bible there are some accounts of the multiplication of loaves and fishes, from which we can draw some biblical principles for our practical life, without forgetting the gift of faith that operated the miracle of multiplication.

Jesus knew the will of God about that situation and knew the need of those people who heard him. He knew that after those people have fed "spiritually", they need to be physically fed.

Jesus moved with intimate compassion. He understood that, after hours of learning, those people were hungry and needed to feed themselves to continue the journey back home without anyone failing.

Jesus knew the character of God and each of his attributes, He understood that, in God, he had ample sufficiency, that God is the God of his provision. Jesus understood that God's faithfulness was with Him in each of his steps.

And, by knowing the character of his Father, he trusted and moved by that trust. Jesus dared in faith, because his trust in what the Father could do was unbreakable and, by trusting in the Father, he was THANKFUL before seeing his heart's desire to manifest before him.

In all multiplication reports, we have a very important key, a key that "activates the multiplier effect." Jesus was THANKFUL, He surrendered thanks to the Father before distributing the loaves and fishes with the crowd, the heart of Jesus was a grateful heart.

The last detail I want to describe is the result of everything that has already been mentioned. In all the multiplications, the result was abundance about to become food baskets even after the whole crowd had fed.

That people can learn more and more by observing the examples of Jesus, that we can know the heart of our Father more and more, that our confidence in him makes us more daring every day, that compassion to see the need for close, move us to the point of not being able to accommodate us in our comfort zone and that our heart remains always GRATEFUL before the challenges.

One of the most important things is to be grateful, and more when we know what the FATHER does every day in our lives .. Actually in a different way but what resembles each one of his children is that it always ends in blessing .. Great Brother message a big hug @emiliocabrera

Thank you Winder, the likeness of God is one of the most important Christian values! Jesus gave thanks in everything, let us do the same. Blessings

I enjoyed reading this, Emilio. Being grateful is more than a courtesy norm. Gratitude is a way of crossing borders to reach a more emotional, personal and even spiritual level.

Very good Brother 👍😊

Gratitude and praise always go hand in hand; that is grateful, praise. To praise is to applaud, to praise; Therefore, when we praise God, we are declaring our gratitude, and recognizing that he is good, and what he does is always best for us.

God bless you Emilio brother is a story where the faith and the will of God came together to make an extraordinary miracle.

greetings serf of God, is an excellent message very precise is one of my passages of the life of jesus that I like, the compassion of Jesus is infinite, we are to order if you have Carupano.

Sometimes it really is a sacrifice to offer praise and thanks. We may not feel like it. We’re struggling. We're weary. Or maybe, we feel like He let us down. We think God seems distant, like he's far away, or doesn't really care about what's troubling us. Painful life blows and losses might have recently sent us spiraling. But here’s what can make a lasting difference. We have a choice, every day, to give him thanks. And with a heart of thanksgiving, we realize that no matter what we face, God doesn’t just work to change our situations and help us through our problems.

Great commenting Dwayne. Thanks

Excellent post! I like to think of gratitude as “fears” antagonist. Fear leads to hate. Gratitude leads to peace.

Hi @williamgabriel, thank you for your good comment, I like your focus on gratitude!

Jesus is the example to follow and his experiences. To be grateful is an attitude that God likes, and in reality God rewards her.

Give by grace what you have received.

gracias por compartir : )

Thanks Theonlyway, now people can see Jesus through us.

Show me a man that gets something from God and I will show you a man that is full of thanksgiving. Many christians only remember to be asking God for something without even showing gratitude to God for He has given them already. When you appreciate God for doing a thing, you tickle Him to do more.

Lets development the habit of thanksgiving for it brings multiplication of blessings.

Greetings EC

Excellent LIltom, thanks

Putting our trust and faith in God makes our lives and those of our families blessed and filled with their infinite love. Despite our shortcomings, we will achieve a dignified and peaceful life following Jesus' example of thanking Him.

Very much thanks you my friend Felix

Giving and receiving- Receiving and giving two things that come together to complete a cycle, but the beginning of this cycle begins giving, but giving with grace and joy, because our Lord who has given and given us so much always deserves our gratitude.

In all the multiplication reports, we have a very important key, a key that "activates the multiplier effect". Jesus was THANK YOU, he surrendered thanks to the Father before distributing the loaves and fishes among the crowd, the heart of Jesus was a grateful heart.

Interesting message Blessings brother. Move forward do not stop.
