Giving Thanks

Good Morning! The Lord loves to be thanked for all that He has done and will do for us, it's called worship. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. Read Psalm 1004. These things I remember and I pour out my soul within me. For I used to go along with the throng and lead them in procession to the house of God, with the voice of joy and thanksgiving, a multitude keeping festival. Read Psalm 42:2. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. Read 95:2. To You I shall offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving, And call upon the name of the LORD. Read Psalm 116:17. 

When we think of all the things that God did how can we not be thankful? Did you ever find some of your life circumstances so overwhelming and had hard times hit you so hard when you least needed them in your life? Well, all the disciples found themselves in those hard places too, but because they were willing to sacrifice their life to spread the gospel, we can be thankful to know that we can make it through all things that come our way with Jesus and that alone is a reason to be thankful.

I would not change a thing in my life, even when I've had to learn things the hard way and walk through the shadow and valley of death, I'm thankful for God because He already knew the plans that He had for me in spite of it all. I will speak about Him to everyone I know or met, I will share with others how He has maintained my life through the good, bad and ugly so that they can really understand how thankful I'm to Him, and I hope that you will be just as thankful to for Him keeping you though all that you've been through too. Have a nice day....

Always be Ready to Give Thanks

Good Morning! We don't have to wait until Thanksgiving day to be thankful, this is a time to reflect on just how thankful that we are, not for what missing in our lives, but for what God has held back of us, and also for what He has allowed in in our lives.

I know a person who was one in love with a person very much, so much so that they were living in sin with them, (meaning they put themselves in the category of going against God for this person, just as many of us did, myself included, I lived with a person in sin, and I wasn't that in love with him at all even though I was wearing an engagement ring.) when the relationship ended, this person wanted them back so bad, that they were chasing other potential suitors away, until the person that God intended them to be with entered their life. The end of the story was they became thankful that God didn't answer their prayers. This is why God tells us to be thankful in all things for He knows the end from the beginning, and His plans are to save us from ourselves when we can't see ahead to our future.

Pray without ceasing. Give thanks in every circumstance, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Read 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18. Giving thanks always for all things to God and the Father in the the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Read Ephesians 5:20. We should always be ready to give thanks to God, for in everything it's working out in our favor. When we can't see why He removes people from our lives, or when He closes certain doors so that we don't good down the wrong path, thank Him because He's God and He loves us, and He knows what's good and right for us, His children, so not just at Thanksgiving should we be thankful but with every breath everyday we should be so. Have a nice day....

Our Giants Must be Faced Head On

Good Morning! We have a lot to be thankful today for even when things begin to look like giants trying to overtake us, we must face them head on to take them down and destroy them.

And David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone and slung it and struck the Philistine on his forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the ground. Read 1 Samuel 17:49. Whatever it is that we are facing, (and we all have something to face it's just a part of life) all that we have to remember is to take it out at the head, that's where things begin at the top. Whining and complainging about a thing won't help us, but if we face the gaint head on just as David did, God will show us how to destroy it, and it will always start at the beginning, at the top. 

What I like as our encouragement in this is that David went against the gaint sent in to intimadate the army of King Saul, and it's people were afaird, but David said: David asked the men standing near him, "What will be done for the man who kills this Philistine and removes this disgrace from Israel? Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?" Read 1 Samuel 17:26. And that's what we must do also, ask what is this uncircumcised situation trying to do coming into my life to test God, now let me take the word of God, (the stone) and fling it at this situation to bring it into subjection of the word to truth to destroy it's evil intentions. And that's how we can face any gaint in our way, we kill them with the word of God straight to the head. Have a nice day....
