‘Thank You’

19 October 2021
‘He will not forget how hard you have worked for him.’

Do you ever feel like you’re unappreciated, or that others take you for granted? That you just want to hear someone say ‘Thank you’? Two simple words, but they mean such a lot. The truth is that although other people might fail to thank us, our heavenly Father appreciates everything that we do and everything that we are. We’re fulfilling His purpose every day, and as soon as we accept that, we’ll find joy and meaning in whatever we’re doing. Other people are the receivers of our good work and deeds, but God is the reason for them. We mustn’t let someone else’s response to our actions (or lack of response) decide our levels of joy. They may not notice what we’ve done, but God does. He closely observes every day and every detail of our lives. ‘God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and how you have shown your love to him by caring for other believers, as you still do.’ Paul wrote, ‘Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him’ (Colossians 3:17 NIV). Do it for Him – that’s all there is to it. There’s no need to over-complicate it. Today why not pray this prayer: ‘Lord, all that I do, I do for You. I know that You appreciate me, and You’ve blessed me in so many ways,  so I will choose to praise and honour You throughout this day with my thoughts, my words and my deeds. In Jesus’ name, amen.’

What Now?

Thank God for noticing every effort you make for Him. And if there’s someone you’ve forgotten to thank, why not send them a message or write them a note to show your appreciation of them.
