“Be Thankful Season2”
True gratitude expresses before God has its root from a life that is fruitful unto God. For those who are believers in Jesus Christ, we of all people have many things for which to be thankful for. We should reflect of the blessings God has given not one day in a year, but everyday blessings which He bestows on us. There is no excuse whatsoever, that is accepted for one not to give thanks to God. Bad times are better privilege to express and demonstrate the depth of what you know about God. Serving God guarantees that all shall be well, but it does not deny the fact that challenging times are inevitable. But when we still see giving of thanks as an obligation, a necessity to say thank God; it becomes a proof your ruggedness in faith expressed.
Thanking God in everything is not optional but a necessity that must be done in reverence to God through Jesus Christ. What we see and consider as bad moments, failures ,disappointments, breakups and breakdowns, could actually be the way God decides to prevent the damages that you possibly could have experienced. You only know what happened to you but you never knew what could have happened to you if God had not applied the break of rejection, breakups and breakdowns at that moment that should have destroyed your life and destiny.
Thank God for that disappointment, it is an opportunity to be reappointed. If there be no challenge their will be no change. Thanksgiving to God with a grateful heart attracts God in doing something new. To experience the newness of God’s blessings thank him for the ones he done for you.
Being thankful to God through his Son, is a powerful act with spiritual implications that allows what we desire to flow in our experience.
There is always a desire in the heart of everyone, which they wish to experience a flow from God, manifested in their experience.
No peril of life should make us withhold what is duly for God.
Psalm 69:30 “
This is a lament psalm in which David cries out to God in the midst of his persecution. He turns again in praise to the Lord asking God to heal him and perform justice on his enemies. He declares that he will praise the name of God with song and magnify Him with Thanksgiving.
In good times, as well as in trial, David is an example of one who continually turned to the Lord in praise and Thanksgiving. When we face difficulties, we also should turn to the Lord, trusting Him and offering praise and Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is a divine force that can change anything. Habitually giving of thanks to God can turn ordinary opportunity into unprecedented testimony, pain into gain, shame to fame, disappointment to appointment, it make a person from just being healed to wholeness; a state of completeness: nothing wanting, nothing missing. It brightens our paths for fulfillment of destiny.
When you are thankful for the goodness of God around you, you can see life through a stronger, brighter perspective that there is hope for the future , which in turns qualifies you for more blessings from God. A person of Thanksgiving is a blessed person. For you to constantly enjoy the unhindered blessings of God, you must habitually give thanks to Him Shalom!!
FROM TODAY I DECREE OVER MY LIFE AND ALL THAT CONCERNS ME, THAT THE VOICE OF THANKSGIVING AND THE SHOUT OF PRAISE SHALL NOT CEASE TO BE HEARD FROM ME, IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME AMEN.
