Welcome to December of *THANKSGIVING* you will agree with me that our God is deserving of all praises and thanksgiving. It’s the last month in 2018.
I asked a sister yesterday that “when did we enter 2018? And here we are in the12th month of the year. It was as if the year rolled by so fast.
Sincerely if we start singing, shouting for joy, screaming in excitement, expressing ourselves in thanksgiving and praise, it cannot be enough to quantify God’s goodness we daily enjoy.
The Bible says ” *What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?
Psalms 8:4 NKJV
The New English Translation (NET) says ” *Of what importance is the human race, that you should notice them? Of what importance is mankind, that you should pay attention to them,
Psalms 8:4 NET*
He’s so mindful of us, We are so important to Him (am so excited about that) He’s so taken to us that He would never leave to us to ourselves.
HE DESERVE ALL THE GLORY. HALLELUJAH!
We have many reasons to give God thanks. The life He gave us, the breath in our nostrils, the daily benefits He daily loads us with, our families, businesses, homes, ministry and all.
I urge us all to be deliberate in offering our heartfelt thanksgiving to God.
Perhaps you are reading this and you think you do not have any reason to thank and praise God. Life must have dealt a hard blow on you. The Bible says “What if the Lord had not been on our side? Let all Israel repeat: What if the Lord had not been on our side when people attacked us? They would have swallowed us alive in their burning anger. The waters would have engulfed us; a torrent would have overwhelmed us. Yes, the raging waters of their fury would have overwhelmed our very lives. Praise the Lord , who did not let their teeth tear us apart! We escaped like a bird from a hunter’s trap. The trap is broken, and we are free! Our help is from the Lord , who made heaven and earth.
Psalms 124:1-8 NLT”
Yes life dealt a hard blow on you but God didn’t allow it to kill you. Yes you were down and out but God is the reason you got back up and you are not looking like what you’ve been through.
Others out there didn’t pass through an inch of what you went through but they not alive or they committed suicide are gone others who are even alive are either insane or are a walking corpse.
Remember only the living can praise God. A living Dog is better than a dead lion,
God is not done with you yet, what looks like an end is not actually an end but a bend. There is light at the end of the tunnel, His thoughts for you are good, to give you an expected end.
So rise up, get your praise on, count your many blessings, name them one by one, and you will be amazed at his loving kindness and tender mercies you have enjoyed.
The Psalmist says
“You can pass through his open gates with the password of praise. Come right into his presence with thanksgiving. Come bring your thank offering to him and affectionately bless his beautiful name!
Psalms 100:4 TPT”
Throughout this Month and even beyond, let’s enter into God’s presence with our password of praise, bringing thanksgiving to Him.
And i believe that as we are deliberate about this. He will come dwell on our praise.
No rock shall cry out in our place In Jesus Christ name Amen.
Let’s have a Beautiful Thanksgiving December.
*PERMIT ME TO BE THE FIRST TO WISH YOU A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR IN ADVANCE.
We shall live to see the end of 2018 and beyond in Jesus Christ name Amen
