How to thank God for His mercy

  Sehrish Khan       Monday, July 16, 2018

Do you want to get a little taste of God's mercy right now? Imagine for a few seconds that the Earth has lost its gravity and stopped rotating for a second or all the water in the world ran out due to any reason or an expected drought. 


 


Actionable tips to thanking God for His mercy


  1. Sit in silence with an aim to thank the Lord
  2. Tell God, verbally and in your heart, that His mercy is precious and not to be taken for granted.
  3. Repent and admit your weakness that you are not thankful enough.
  4. Acknowledge that you are not entitled to His mercy and generosity.
  5. Tell God how disastrous your life would be if He took away His mercy, even for a moment.
  6. Dwell on how His mercy is benefiting you in every area of your life
  7. Say "Thank You" every time you feel grateful


Another little idea of how much merciful God is: Imagine the Earth losing oxygen for even five seconds. God is merciful enough not to let these disasters happen. Watch the video

Gratitude tips: How to thank God for His mercy

Risks of taking God for granted

The law of gratitude tells us that if we don't acknowledge or don't give due credit for a blessing or favour, that favour/blessing is gradually taken away from us. Why is that blessing taken away or starts slipping away from our life when we don't appreciate or give due credit to the source? It gets taken away simply because we tend to ignore, devalue, or even degrade the benefactor (Lord/God/Allah/Creator) who brings that blessing/benefit to us. Logical enough. 

Lord's mercy is the most valued blessing that only an ignorant will ignore

Lord's mercy should be given due credit and acknowledgement (though it can never be given due credit due to its limitless reality but we humans are supposed to give it our best try)



Reasons to appreciate God for His mercy


 It is Lord's mercy that is keeping existence alive and active. 

It is Lord's mercy that is pumping oxygen through our lungs and maintaining our heartbeat and blood pressure without our being aware of it. 

There is peace, security and protection in our country thanks entirely to Lord's mercy (Imagine life without protection, peace and security for a minute)

We are given food on a regular basis. Without it, we would starve to death in a day or two

We are given second chances all the time to correct our mistakes and wrongdoing. If God took away His mercy, we would not be given a second chance and would taste punishment for our mistakes immediately and face losses in every area of life. 

There would be no family structure or family support for us if the Creator took away His mercy.
