Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another. He may ask us to sever friendships or relationships with people who can tempt us to stray from His plan for our lives. We can easily become like those we spend time with. If we spend time with people who are selfish and self-centered, we may soon find ourselves often focused on ourselves, thinking about what we can do or get for ourselves. In contrast, God may encourage us to make friends with someone who is a giver.

Anytime we give God pleasure like that, our intimacy with Him increases - and that makes for a better relationship with Him. If we are not thankful for what we have, why should He give us something else to murmur about? On the other hand, when God sees that we genuinely appreciate and are thankful for the big and little things, He is inclined to bless us even more. According to Philippians , everything we ask God for should be preceded and accompanied by thanksgiving.
No matter what we pray for, thanksgiving should always go with it. A good habit to develop is starting all of our prayers with thanksgiving. An example of this would be: "Thank You for all You have done in my life. You are awesome and I really love and appreciate You.
If you want a challenge, just try to get through an entire day without uttering one word of complaint. Develop an attitude of thanksgiving in every situation. In fact, just become outrageously thankful - and watch as your intimacy with God increases and as He pours out greater blessings than ever before.

Dec 31, Freda Mans-Labianca rated it it was amazing This is a great book to start each day, delivering a piece of God into your life every morning. I start my day reading the devotional, and then my bible. It always lifts me up to talk with God each morning. The devotional helps to put things into perspective, like knowing when to turn the other cheek, or when to step in and take over, or when to just be alone and let God lead the way. I have been through a lot in my life, that lead me to my bible, but all the while helping me everyday to live the life I long for. This devotional book is fantastic!
