[7/22, 6:10 AM] 919063: Reasons to be thankful
Monday 22nd July 2019
‘In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God…for you.’ 1 Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV
Gratitude doesn’t come naturally to us, but grumbling does. No one had more cause to grumble than Joseph. Abandoned, enslaved, betrayed and estranged. Those are the chapter titles for his life story. Yet when he talks about it you won’t hear a tinge of bitterness. Instead, you’ll hear the opposite. In naming his two sons, he makes them living, breathing, lifelong testimonies of his gratitude to God. ‘Joseph named his older son Manasseh, for he said, “God has made me forget all my troubles and everyone in my father’s family.” Joseph named his second son Ephraim, for he said, “God has made me fruitful in this land of my grief”‘ (Genesis 41:51-52 NLT).
Notice two things. First, Joseph looked at the past and gave God thanks for what he had brought him through. And you need to do that too. Whether it’s stuff others did to you, or stuff you did to them, God’s grace brought you through it. There’s only one good reason to bring up the past, and that’s to remember how God guided, protected and blessed you in it.Second, Joseph looked at the present. ‘God has made me fruitful in this land of my grief’ (Genesis 41:52 NLT). Do you remember a time when you thought you wouldn’t make it? And when others thought you wouldn’t make it, too? Look what the Lord has done in your life! In spite of the obstacles and the opposition he has blessed and taken care of you. Turn off the complaining tap and turn on the thanksgiving tap.
‘In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God…for you’ (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV).
[7/22, 6:12 AM] 919063: Today’s SOD – 2019-07-22
TOPIC: THE RESPONSIBILITY OF FAITH
SCRIPTURE: Even so faith,”if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. James 2″:17
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Faith equals work.
Every possibility in life is accompanied with corresponding responsibility. Every provision attracts a condition. That is why the walk of faith is a journey of responsibility.
According to Gloria Copeland,”there is no victory for the lazy. That is, spiritually, physically and otherwise. In the same manner, faith which is the guarantee of our victory in life is not an endeavour for the lazy; it requires work. That is why the Bible says that faith without work is dead (James 2″:17). Faith,”therefore, equals work. So, faith is responsibility. It is for those who are studious in the Word.
Beloved, you must work at the Word of God, labour in the Word before you arrive at faith. And when you accept the responsibility, you can operate in faith and have victory in life.
Men of faith are hard workers spiritually. They are very studious on their approach to Scripture. They are not the kind of people who would say, ‘God, since I am your child and I have been going to church all this while, have mercy on me and cause the cooking gas that has finished to be miraculously replaced without refilling it at the gas station.’ Faith people don’t waste their prayer in that kind of way. Faith people pray based on the Word of God which they had laboured on, and the more they declare the Word, the more they are charged up, the more fire burns in them for the manifestation of God’s Power.
Remember this”: Faith equals work.
1. Labour in the Word of God daily,”and at times, take out a day or days to sit with the Word as your schedule would permit.
2. Pray in the Holy Ghost abundantly.
3. Never allow anything to wear out your faith.
FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE”: THE MYSTERIES OF FAITH
PRAYER: Father,”in the Name of Jesus, as I labour in Your Word, cause me to operate in the realm of faith that will guarantee my victory on every side, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
DAILY BIBLE READING”: 2 Chronicles 6:12 to 8:10,”Romans 7″:14 to 8:8,”Psalm 17″:1 to 15,”Proverbs 19″:24 to 25.
QUOTE: Your faith in God produces unbelievable results. Culled from 15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL by Dr Paul Enenche.
AMAZING FACT: Our galaxy,”called ‘The Milky Way’ is more than 100,000 light years in diameter. Two million light years beyond that, you will arrive at another galaxy system.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD”: The grace to accept responsibility of faith is released upon you in Jesus’ Name.
