THE POWER OF THANKSGIVING!
Enter INTO HIS GATES WITH THANKSGIVING and into His courts with praise. Be THANKFUL TO HIM and bless His name.” – Psalm 100:1-4
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! The Thanksgiving Day is here again. I hope we’ll not forget to take a quality Time to Appreciate & Thank God for Life & for All His Blessings; Mercies & Faithfulness!
I’d want to briefly share with you a Message on Thanksgiving that I believe will be a Blessing to you this Thanksgiving Season. Thanksgiving… is not only when you’ve… seen the physical manifestation of your miracles but to offer Thanksgiving unto God right in the midst of your most difficult situation. When things seems to be in their worst shape, still being able to say “Thank You Jesus!” is the most difficult, yet most Powerful thing you can ever do or say.
Let me show you from God’s Word, where the Master Jesus was confronted with the worst situations you can think of, yet in the midst of such situations, He got the miracle and victory through the Power of Thanksgiving. “And they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up His eyes, and said, ‘Father I thank Thee that thou has heard me…” John 11:41.
Here, Jesus was confronted with the worst situation you can ever think of; Lazarus His friend had died, and had been in the tomb for four days, and now Jesus comes around, trying to raise Lazarus back to life. I’d like you to imagine; Here is Jesus, standing right before a “Hopeless” situation- a man who is not only dead, but has been in the tomb for four days, he is now already smelling, stone dead and even decaying – all wrapped up in a grave cloth. So Jesus stands there. What kind of prayer should he offer? Where should he start? Would such a prayer be answered? Well, Jesus knew the Power of Thanksgiving … So he prayed: “FATHER, I THANK THEE -” Wait a minute, Lazarus was still stone dead, lifeless and decaying. Yet Jesus knew that with the Power of Thanksgiving – Thanking God for what He is about to do – … the dead will come back to life – and of course, Lazarus did come back to life. When last did you say; “Father, I Thank You—” when facing the worst situation you ever faced. I can guarantee you that if you’ll cultivate this attitude, then you …will be victorious…!
I prophesy over your Life & Destiny from today, that: you will cultivate an attitude of Gratitude & Thanksgiving! As you become more Thankful to God for what He has done; I see the Power of Thanksgiving being unleash upon you – in Jesus Name!
“…And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, ‘Father I thank thee that thou has heard me …” John: 11:41
“I will give Thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.” Psalms: 7: 17
