Tridax procumbens



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 second half of the year 2021, it is with a heart of gratitude to God Almighty for ushering us into the third quarter of 2021. So our topic today is about gratitude to God.

What do we mean by gratitude?

It is a feeling or show of thanks to someone for some helpful act.

What is the reason for my appreciation or for being grateful?

That is the usual question when you look at unfulfilled 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 thanksgivings at this point in time? Well join me as I proceed, you will certainly see the answer.

Why are we grateful to God?

1. For the gift of life. I have searched around to see if there is any market where life is been sold but found none! The only Originator, Source and Sustainer of life is ABBA Father- Jehovah the Almighty God:

Psalm 3: 5. I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.

Beloved, if you check it out, you will observed that out of 365 days of the year, God has woken you up for 181days! That you slept and 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.

2. 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.

3. It is the seed of greatness. It has been confirmed that the secret of Stars in this kingdom is gratitude.

Those who 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 granted him victory
C. David (1Chro.16:1-24); He was reputed for 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.

4. It is what triggers multiplicity of blessings. If you desire to multiply what you have, then 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 spices of thanksgivings 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”.

*Remember this*: Heaven is real and hell is real. Every one will certainly end up in either of them one day. So where have you prepared for your self?

Prayer points;

– Father thank you for another new month!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.

Prophetic Declaration

– I prophesy the month of July, shall favour you as you give thanks in the name of Jesus
