"Giving credit where credit is due is a very rewarding habit to form. Its rewards are inestimable" -Loretta Young 

"That night the secret was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven..." (Daniel 2:19-23)

Virtually each one of us have experienced a situation where credit earned was mis-assigned. Either a manager took credit for the performance of their invisible high flier employee or credit was assigned to a less valuable employee for an achievement they did not register.  

When credit is misassigned, teams lose the desire to deliver their best but when credit is assigned appropriately the situation encourages employees to offer their utmost efforts in future tasks. 

The former is exactly what happens when we misassign credit for the answered prayers. After Daniel asked God to reveal Nebuchadnezzar's dream to him, Daniel's prayer was answered and he saw a vision of the dream. . Before rushing to Arioch (the person entrusted to put to death the wise men in Babylon), Daniel took time to give God credit for all wisdom and power, thanking God for answering his request.  

How do you feel when your prayers have been answered? Do you get excited? Astonished? Or Relaxed? 

Indeed there are quite many times we ask God in prayer, and when he has answered our prayers, we rush into excitement, forgetting to give God credit and thanks for the answer.  

Always match your commitment in prayer with gratitude when you have been answered. It is the nature of God to receive back his credit. 

Prayer Today: Heavenly Father,  I am truly blessed for your daily intervention in my struggles. I thank you for all that you do every other day. Thank you, Lord, for your goodness and your blessings over me. Thank you, Lord, for you're able to bring love through even the toughest of times, strengthening me for your purpose. Forgive me for when I don't thank you enough, for all that you've given me. Help me always to set my eyes and heart on you afresh. I give you worship and praise and thank you, for alone are worthy. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, I have prayed. Amen.
