The Power of Thanksgiving 

We are almost halfway into the year 2018 and you are probably thinking that you are behind in some of the things you have desired for this year. You may also be thinking that these things may never happen and find yourself feeling sad about this.

“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

Our text is taken from I Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV)

God commands in everything to give thanks. He does this because he understands that “a cheerful disposition is good for my health” (Pro 17:22). God knows worrying about circumstances or things would only create unpleasant health issues or concerns. He expects us to trust in Him and not waver in our belief that He is God over everything.

Remember amidst the troubles, there is always something to be thankful about.  Being alive is one.  Why is thanksgiving so vital for you?

a. It creates for you a progressive path in God’s Kingdom- your expectation creates your miracles

b. It positively affects your mental faculty and improves your reasoning- you see things clearly and       through the eyes of God

c. Affects the Glory of yourself- Praise can return your lost glory

d. Thanksgiving can attract honor and brightness to you

e. It can cause those designed to favor you to remember you

f. Thanksgiving ushers you into God’s presence- it is the protocol needed- come in through the gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise.
