Expressing Thanks to God

I am often thankful to God for His blessings. It is important, however, to express my thankfulness verbally, not just in my head as a prayer to God.

There is something powerful that happens when we say what we think. There is a real transferrance to the heart.

Paul talked about this regarding salvation, "with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved" (Romans 10:10). Salvation isn't just through believing, but stating, confessing what we believe.

When I teach strumming and rhythm to my guitar students, it is imperative they count out loud so their hands can 'hear' the count. At times when they don't count, often the timing and rhythm veers off.

It is vital to express verbally our thanksgiving to God. It actually makes us more thankful, believe it or not.

Hebrews 13:15 says, "By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name."
