THE FORCE OF GRATITUDE (THANKSGIVING)
If you fail in your praise and thanksgiving, you have failed your destiny.
WHAT IS FORCE ACCORDING TO THE DICTIONARY?
A powerful effect or influence
WHAT IS GRATITUDE:
A feeling of thankfulness and appreciation.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
That you are facing something terrible isn’t reason enough for you to be thankful.
There is no excuse whatsoever why you shouldn’t be thankful.
Give thanks even when you’re going through adverse situations.
God’s will is that we be grateful no matter what situation we are in.
No child of God has an excuse to be depressed.
Gratitude is the cure for backsliding.
Esther 1:3-17, Matthew 5:14
Until the seven pick you to glorify God, you’ll always glorify from far.
If you’re struggling with gratitude, it’s because you don’t have the seven.
The seven (Holy Spirit) pick you from afar and bring you before the king of glory.
God has no problem with giving you gold and silver, houses, property and many more things, but only if it reflects His glory.
You must be conscious of who you are coming to worship.
You must be conscious that every glory around your life is because of God.
God has commanded us to give thanks to Him.
If you refuse to obey the commandment of thanksgiving, you are no longer in command.
The beauty upon your life that people praise should cause you to redirect that glory to God.
The church is a model for the rest of the world.
How will people be grateful if the church is not grateful? How will people know how to give thanks to God if the church is not giving thanks to God?
Every time gratitude is cut off from men, the land suffers.
You must understand that the reason why you are a king in this life is because there is a King of Kings.
The moment you forget; problems have started in your life.
To remember is to be thankful.
If you remember where He took you from, you will stay on top.
Honor demands that you adapt.
When forgetting enters a marriage, problems have also begun.
When we prioritize activities we are involved in at the expense of connectivity with God, disaster happens.
When God the King has on-going activities you must suspend your own activities in order to avoid being distracted.
We mess up our lives because we lack honor and respect for God.
Some people will pay K350 as a bribe to a policeman that caught them over-speeding on a Saturday afternoon, but drops K5 in the Offering basket on Sunday morning.
God compares how we treat Him to the way we treat other human beings.
Be careful that the blessing of the Lord does not make you blind from continuous gratitude to Him that gives the blessing.
Some people misbehave when they have a little breakthrough when God intends for them to have more than that.
How much we value God is reflected in the way we behave every single day.
