TOPIC: LORD, I’M GRATEFUL!
Scripture: Psalm 105: 1. O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.
Beloved I welcome you to the month of November!
The eleventh month of the year 2021. It is with much gratitude to God Almighty for His faithfulness and mercy since 2021 began. It is only the great that are grateful! So join me today as we register our names among the great by saying, “Lord I’m grateful.”
*What do we mean by Lord I’m grateful ?*
It is a show of our gratitude to God! It is a feeling or showing of thanks to God for His faithfulness towards us!
What is the reason for this show of gratitude or being grateful?
That is the usual questions when you look back at the obvious expectations of your heart that are yet to be met, line up of activities that are yet to be achieved, goals set that you haven’t hit the mark!
You are quick to ask what exactly is the reason for thanksgiving at this point in time? Well join me as I proceed, you will certainly see the answer.
Why are we grateful to God?
1. It is thanksgiving that triggers multiplicity. When you give thanks for what you have you trigger it to multiply because if you have lost anything, God is the reason you didn’t lost your life.
If you desire to multiply what you have give God thanks for it. Jesus received five loaves of bread and thanked God for it and it multiplied such that it feed thousands;
John 6: 11. And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
Beloved, that little in your hands can sustain you if you add the spice of thanksgiving to it!. Please join me today in saying Father I’m grateful for the little you have provided. Thank you for the source and the strength and wisdom given to me so far. Lord accept my thanks.
2. For the gift of life; I have searched around to see if there is any market where life is sold but found none!
The only Originator, Source and saustenance of life is ABBA father- Jehovah the Almighty God, therefore give thanks:
Psalm 3: 5. I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
Beloved, if you check, out of 365 days, God has woken you up for 304days.
That you slept and were able to wake up the following day is not by your power! Hence you will join me to say Lord I’m grateful. I may not be where I desire to be but I’m no longer where I used to be! Thank you for the year so far.
3. For the kindness, mercy and grace that you have enjoyed so far;
Lamentations 3: 22. It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
4. It is the seed of greatness: It has been confirmed that the secret of stars in this kingdom is gratitude.
Those that know how to be grateful to God are always great people! Hence showing gratitude to God is signing up your name on the register of greatness. Examples include:
A. Abraham (Rom.4:20): He was known to give glory and thanks to God despite contrary situations.
B. Moses (Exo.15:1-15); Moses constructed a song in thanking the Lord that grant him victory
C. David (1Chro.16:1-24); He was reputed in returning thanks to the Almighty God! Infact, most of the Psalms and Hymns were dedicated to the praise of Jehovah.
1 Chronicles 16: 7. Then on that day David delivered first this psalm to thank the LORD into the hand of Asaph and his brethren. 8. Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real. Everyone will certainly end up in either heaven or hell one day.
So where have you prepared to spend eternity?
– Father thank you for another new month!
-Lord I thank you for reminding me again on why I must thank you despite the obvious.
-Lord help me to always thank you in Jesus name.
– I prophesy the month of November shall be a blessing to you as you give thanks in the name of Jesus
– This month of November, the earth shall release every of your blessing that it has swallowed in the name of Jesus.
