Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.
It’s amazing how something as simple as ‘thanksgiving’ can be ‘powerful.’ While we are encouraged again and again to give thanks to our Mighty Lord of the heavens, how humbling it is to know that this act of gratitude also brings with it personal benefits for our own selves. Sincerely, what can we give the Lord and not gain out of??? Isn’t it true, no matter how much we give, we can never out-give the Giver of it all! Yet, He delights in our praises and thanksgiving.
According to studies, people who practice the ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ are more likely to have healthier lives, showing that gratitude can have a direct impact on your physical health, even improving your immune system. If you are struggling with a health condition, speak the Word of healing over your life, saying, ‘Thank you Lord Jesus, for taking the punishment that made me whole, for through your wounds I receive my complete healing and restoration.’
Science also shows that gratitude improves psychological health. It sets us free from toxic thoughts and emotions such as depression, anxiety, fear, frustration, etc. If you are battling thoughts that are negatively influencing your life, let the Lord transform you. Get ready to be changed from the inside out, ‘Lord Jesus, thank you for the freedom I have in you. Take every thought of mine captive to obey you. Fill my mind with that which is the best, the most beautiful and the most praiseworthy. (Phil.4:8)’
Beloved, may your thanksgiving rise up as incense unto the Lord. May He be stirred to move in your life like never before because of the gift of your lips. May He release the supernatural forces of heaven to unleash a magnitude of blessings that you truly cannot contain. In Jesus’ Name!
