An Attitude of Gratitude Transforms Your Altitude

When Jesus Christ gave thanks to the Father, five loaves and two fish became more than enough for tens of thousands of His followers. If you are in Christ, you can do the same. As a new creation in Christ, how to multiply what you have is to give thanks to the Father for it; just like Jesus did. It works.

“Looking unto Jesus, the Author and the Finisher of our faith…”
~Hebrews 12:2(KJV)

Jesus is the model man. He came to show us how to live; how to respond to situations. Now, when you have no food, and you’re down to the last meal, what do you do? Just take that last meal and thank God. When you’re down to the last dime, take it and give thanks to the Father. Whatever you want to multiply in your life, give thanks to the Father for it.

Understand: An attitude of gratitude comes through thanksgiving. As you thank God for what you have, your attitude is transformed into one of gratitude. This in turn alters your altitude.

Altitude talks about your angle of view. It also refers to your position. When the attitude of your heart is one of gratitude, you’ll enjoy a high altitude. You come into the place of the Most High.

God is called the Most High God because He sits in the most high place. Whenever you begin to thank God for something that is not working out in your life, as you begin to thank God for the little that you have, you become lifted by grace. That attitude of gratitude lifts you into the presence of the Most High. And the Bible says:

“…in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”
~Psalm 16:11 (KJV)

When you thank God for the little you have, that grumbling, grudging, mumbling and murmuring attitude becomes replaced with joy, happiness and gladness. And gladness and joy are signs that you are in a high place. They are features of God’s presence; signs that you are lifted.

The moment Jesus lifted His hands in the desert of hunger and said, ‘Father, I thank you’, it changed everything; and the meager five loaves and two fish multiplied to feed tens of thousands.
