“Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will]” 1 Thessalonians 5:18.
Has 2021 been gratitude-worthy for you?
Hmm, I could tell that you are having some reflections right now!
Be it good or bad, the truth is this: you pulled it off!
You never gave up and here you are, alive!
The will of God for man is that he gives thanks in every situation, for the good and bad. Every time you give thanks, you are showing God that you are worthy of His investments. And you know what happens next? You stirring His heart to do more for you.
You might not be where you wanted to get to right now but that does not mean that you have not made a progress. Not every progress is pronounced: Some signs of progress are seen while some are not evident. The unseen ones are usually those that form you. While the enemy was shaking his head and making jest of you, God was doing some prunings, breakings, and digging to ensure that you are ready for your next breakthrough.
Hence, don’t give up God now! Because you are closer than you ever were.
Bow your knees and raise your hands in gratitude to God. In doing that you are raising the bar of your situations, because you could never be lower than that again, instead you are up for lifting.
Every time a man gives thanks, the Lord looks upon him for a lifting. You can never be small again even if you wanted to because you are up for lifting.
I celebrate God in you ahead as you give thanks today!
Welcome to your lifting!
