INTRODUCTION: If you sincerely, solely and heartily desire God’s Will which is ultimate, on your life, today’s topic can solve long lasting problems and take you to the great height of all your desires.

I Thess 5:16 admonish you to rejoice “evermore rejoice”. The way to unlock unimaginable virtue, values and result to your life lies in the Power of Gratitude.

Our memory verse stated the condition and time that requires gratitude, which should be in all situations at all times. Gratitude is not just an act; it is a way of life.

What is Gratitude: Gratitude is derived from grateful which means showing that you value or appreciate something that has been done for you while “VIRTUE” is a good or desirable personal quality.

MEMORY VERSE: In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

TEXT REVIEW: 1 Thess. 5:14-18
Paul understood the virtue that flow from a grateful heart, he laid emphasis on situations and seasons to be grateful.

i. Joy flows from a grateful heart.

ii. A grateful heart prays without wearing.

iii. A grateful heart will always wait for God’s will.

iv. In the most difficult situation, be grateful.

LESSON OUTLINE

Attitudinize gratitude by pulling down the barriers.

Three of these are,

1. The gift of life (the mother of all gifts).

2. The gift of free air (oxygen).

3. The gift of talent to work with and many others.

However, the case is opposite, even among Christians and in the Church, this is because some barriers like the wall of Jericho, (Joshua 6:1-2) have been put up against you and your loved ones to rejoice.

These walls must be pulled down through appreciation.

SUMMARY: Gratitude to God is a must if you want to walk with God.

CONCLUSION: The Hosts of Heaven respond most of the time to attitude of gratitude before any other, therefore develop this great attitude today and the heavens will surprise you.
