And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. LET THANKFULNESS RULE in your heart, as you thank God for the blessings in your life, a marvelous thing happens. It is as if scales fall off of your eyes spiritually, (the same way that scales fell from Saul’s eyes in the physical when Ananias laid his hands on him). This will enable you to see more and more of Gods glorious riches. With your eyes thus opened, you will be allowed to see the gifts that God gives you from His treasure house. And each time you receive one of His golden gifts, let your thankfulness sing out praises to His wonderful Name. “Hallelujahs” are the language of heaven and they can become the language of your heart. A life of praise and thankfulness becomes a life filled with miracles. Instead of trying to be in control, focus on God and what he is doing. This is the power of praise: centering your entire being on Him. This is how He created you to live, for he made you in his own image. Enjoy abundant life by overflowing with praise and thankfulness. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting;
and His truth endureth to all generations.
