Gratitude is such an important emotion that it is worth revisiting. It creates a powerful magnetism in the ether, and thereby generates an unstoppable flow from God. The emotion of gratitude ensures that the doors to heaven remain open, so that whatever you need always can be provided. Satan knows the power of gratitude, therefore, his unrelenting purpose is to ensure that we remain in a constant state of dissatisfaction. We are dissatisfied with our weight, our height, our income, our spouse, our children, our jobs, our chosen career, the size of our home, our neighborhood, our hair, our facial features, etc. Virtually everything and everyone is a potential source of dissatisfaction.
There is a vast difference between being dissatisfied with something or with someone, and seeking growth and improvement in that area of your life. When a person is dissatisfied, the emotion is negative and counterproductive. When they seek growth and improvement from a place of gratitude, the emotion is positive and joyful. Spiritually, the combination of joy and gratitude can be explosive. If you are dealing with a difficult situation, or a specific and urgent need, taking charge of and controlling your emotional responses may be extremely difficult. Nonetheless, it is the key to your ultimate victory!
