Imagine how you’d feel if you helped someone out of a dire situation and they didn’t acknowledge your assistance, or even say “Thank you”. It’s not that we need to recognition, but rather we’d just like to be acknowledged and know that our help was appreciated. In my own mind I’d sarcastically be thinking, “You’re welcome!”
This got me thinking of the importance of thanking and acknowledging God for the assistance He’s given me. When I’m praying for specific requests, I need to make sure that I not only thank Him but also acknowledge what he has done. He’s been too good to me that I should fail to give him praise.
“I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” ~Psalms 9:1
