The Place of Thanksgiving
Isa 12:4 and in that day you will say, “give thanks to the LORD, call on his name. make known his deeds among the peoples; make them remember that his name is exalted.”
1Th 5:18 Thank <God> in everything <no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks>, for this is the will of God for you <who are> in Christ Jesus <the Revealer and Mediator of that will>. (Amplified)
The Word of Faith was created for bad situations.
Consider when you first used the word of faith. when you were lost and without hope you heard the good news of Jesus who while you were a sinner and without God and hope in this world your heart was moved with the hope of deliverance from your separation from God. Then you acted in faith. You confessed Him as your Lord and savior. The burden of your sin was lifted and the reality of your salvation was made manifest. Your life changed. You got a fresh start as a new creation. Old things past away a new life unfolded. You were so grateful to God for saving you.
Now it may have been years or for that matter days since your heart was filed with the sweet joy of your salvation. The enemy has come, the cares of this life didn’t go away. You don’t know why or what to do.
i would encourage you right now to stop and think about Five things you are thankful for. Focus on what you have or are. Five things. What you focus on you will have more of. Jesus said if your eye in single (focused) you will be filled with light. Light illuminates the darkness . the darkness you are in right now. You don’t know what to do in darkness . You don’t know the wayout.
Be thankful right now. It will lift your heart from darkness . The Holy Spirit that dwells in you with show you what to do. He will give you a word of faith to speak and to act on . That word will deliver you if you hold fast to it.
The entrance of His Word give light. Man does not live by food alone but by every word that is proceeding from the mouth of God.
Follow that light and it will lead you out of the pit you are in.
Five things. Think, lift your eyes to the thing He has done for you. Write down the thoughts ,ideas that come then do them, say them. It will release His Grace (His power to do what you can’t). Your life will change for the better.
2Ch 20:20 they rose early in the morning and went out to the wilderness of Tekoa; and when they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “listen to me, O judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem, put your trust in the LORD your god and you will be established. put your trust in his prophets and succeed.”
Job 22:28 “you will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways.
Bless you this day
