Default Everyday Thanks

Everyday Thanks by Victoria Osteen

Have you ever gotten tired of something? We all do. Every day we have to get up and go to work. Every day we have to make meals and try to keep the house clean. Every day we have to make sure the bills are being paid. And when we get really tired of it, we tend to vent and complain about our situation.

It's interesting that after the people of Israel had been freed from slavery in Egypt, they started complaining about their hardships in the wilderness. One of their complaints was that they were tired of the manna, the bread that God provided miraculously for them every single day. They grumbled and complained, "Now we have lost our appetite; we never see anything but this manna!" (Numbers 11:6 NIV). That complaint got them thinking about the food they used to eat in captivity: "We remember…the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions and garlic" (v. 5). They let the food they had become tired of become more important than their freedom!

God is taking all of us somewhere, and like the people of Israel, we have everything we need right now to get to where He's taking us. But that's where the Israelites missed it. They were only looking at their circumstances and what they thought they didn't have. They forgot to look to their God! It's so easy to see out of natural eyes that look for problems rather than see out of supernatural eyes that behold the hand of God working behind the scenes, the Almighty God who's fighting our battles for us.

If God is leading you, nothing can stop you! Instead of complaining about that everyday thing you're tired of, start saying, "God, thank You for this manna. Until You change it, I am grateful for it, and especially for the freedom You've given me. I look forward to where You're taking me, and my eyes are on You!"
