Dr. Charles Stanley once said, “Earthly wisdom is doing what comes naturally. Godly wisdom is doing what the Holy Spirit compels us to do.” The apostle Paul repeatedly instructs believers to live our lives through the guiding of the Holy Spirit. Because if we do, the pull of a worldly, sinful, life is one we can claim victory over. But this only happens when we have hearts of gratitude in all things. For a Spirit led believer is one who thanks God for everything He does in our lives, good and bad. And because we trust that God uses it all for our benefit, (Romans 8:28) we thank Him always in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. God knows us better than we know ourselves, and is the ultimate authority over what we need to become fruitful, mature Christians. So through the highs and lows of life, we can praise Him and sing songs of thanks from hearts filled with melodies of gratitude!
