Topic: See Beyond The Challenges And Be Thankful [Tuesday August 15, 2017]
“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Beloved, in order for the believer to be thankful, he must see clearly and accurately. The believer must see beyond any other image that the enemy is showing him; in his family, finances, health, business, spiritual life, and in every other area of life. You must constantly see that you belong to an unshakable kingdom. Therefore, you cannot suffer loss, irrespective of what is happening around you. Your vision must align with God’s vision for you that, come rain, come sunshine, you are victorious! This is why you have to be thankful. You are thankful because you know beyond every shadow of a doubt that your God is too faithful to fail. He never lies, and He won’t start now. Every word He has spoken concerning you will come to pass. That is what you must be focused on.
The God of all sufficiency knew ahead of time what the global economic situation will be. He knew exactly the situation that will be confronting you right now. He also knew, ahead of time, that you may be tempted to give up and throw in the towel. Yet, He still declared that abundance is your portion. Therefore, you must not settle for less than what God has purposed for you. He is able to fulfil all that He has said. The Bible says not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass. The Bible also tells us that so shall God’s word be that goes forth from His mouth. It shall not return to Him void. But it shall accomplish what He please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which He sent it. Beloved, God is more than able to bring His word to pass in your life.
See beyond every challenge that you’re facing. Let your worship and reverence for God not dwindle. Be determined to be committed more than ever before.
