Fertilizer for ending the year well
Humans have always had a problem with familiarity.
When familiarity creeps into a person, they no longer fulfil their responsibilities towards God.
Satan takes advantage of people who are not grateful.
As the year draws to a close, it’s a common thing to want to complain and murmur because according to you, you have not achieved all the goals that you had set out at the beginning of the year.
Instead of complaining, sit down and look at what God has done for you from January to date.
Luke 17:12-19, Deuteronomy 23:3-6
To end well requires you to take stock of what God has done for you throughout the year.
It is a common thing for people to forget those that helped them.
Even if you have not achieved all your goals for the year, the fact that you are still alive is reason enough to be thankful to God because He still has plans for you.
When our eyes are fixed on what has not yet happened we are blinded from seeing what has already been done.
Murmuring and complaining is an incurable disease for many christians.
There may be certain things you want to receive right now that will not appear at the time that you want them to. God will allow you to go through a ‘wilderness’ experience to prepare you to handle certain things.
The anointing attracts, and unfortunately it attracts everything (even negative things), that is why it is important to go through a ‘wilderness’ experience so that you do not abuse the anointing.
The anointing should be used with constraints, you cannot do anything you wish simply because you are anointed.
Matthew 4:1-6, 11:3, Jeremiah 30:19, Psalm 84:10
Even if thieves broke into your house and made away with all your possessions, you would still have reason to thank God for keeping you alive.
Thanksgiving leads to multiplication.
Thanking God for what you have and for what you are is the guarantee you have for tomorrow (deliberate thanksgiving guarantees tomorrow).
See God in the little things that are working around your life.
Giving thanks attracts God to where you are, while complaining blinds you to the attacks of the enemy.
Only thinkers thank God.
2 Samuel 7:10
It is natural to complain but it is supernatural to give thanks.
Be grateful for the little things that people do for you.
Create deliberate platforms of thanksgiving.
God does not take kindly to murmuring and complaining, He punishes it.
