Thanksgiving is very vital for the believer to fulfill his glorious destiny on the earth Rms. 8:29-30; 2Pet. 1:3. This is because whoever we are and whatever we have today is by the hand of God Jn. 3:27; 2Cor. 3:5. As we celebrate God for this, our thanksgiving and praise turns the believer into a wonder he is ordained to be in life 1Ths. 5:18; Heb. 10:36.
Scriptural Examples of Wonders through Thanksgiving.
Jesus never prayed, He only gave thanks and the five (5) loaves and two (2) small fishes were multiplied supernaturally Jn. 6:6-13; Mat. 14:15-21. The multitude ate and had leftover that filled twelve (12) baskets. Thanksgiving has the power to supernaturally multiply every good thing in a believer’s life, until his life becomes a wonder.
It was a battle that was obvious to have the defeat of the children of Judah, by human analysis 2Chr. 20:1-3,12-13. The children of Judah only gave thanks and praise to God, and God gave them supernatural victory over their enemies that were far greater than them 2Chr. 20:22-24. Remember, life is a battlefield, with oppositions that often are greater than us 1Cor. 16:9; Deu. 2:24. When thanksgiving becomes the lifestyle of the believer, he has the guarantee of supernatural victory over every enemy that will turn him into a wonder to all.
Lazarus was in the grave already for four days, and everyone has considered the case as irreversible Jn. 11:21-24,32-33,37. Jesus only gave thanks, and Lazarus came forth from the grace Jn. 11:41-44. When thanksgiving becomes the believer’s lifestyle, every grave will lose its power over his life, for him to fulfil his glorious destiny on the earth.
What happens in Thanksgiving that Turns the Believer to a Wonder?
We understand from scriptures that anything that God hears from the believer is what He is committed to deliver Num. 14:28; 1Jn. 5:14-15. In prayers, God will only hear when the believer speaks according to God’s will; often, many believer don’t know what the will of God is 1Jn. 5:14. But thanksgiving is God’s will, which makes God to hear and respond whenever we give thanks 1Ths. 5:18; Heb. 10:36.
To preserve means to make to escape every evil and destruction. This is what giving thanks do; it moves God to stop every evil and whatever is out to destroy in the believer’s life Mal. 2:1-3; Jer. 13:15-17. By this, the blessing of God is kept and made to last.
To multiply means to increase in quantity, this is what will happen to our blessings at Shiloh 2023 as we engage in thanksgiving Jn. 6:6-11; Jer. 30:19. For instance, multiplied blessing is when one is healed of pain in the body, but there is still pain in business, family and finance. In thanksgiving, God will increase the number of places pains will be taken away in the life of the believer.
To perfect means to improve in quality. As we give thanks, God will perfect our blessings that we received at Shiloh 2023 Lk. 17:17-19; Psa. 138:1-2,8. For instance, one was healed of a sickness, which makes all the symptoms to disappear, but one is yet to have full strength in his body. As we give thanks, God will perfect everything by imparting with the full strength.
As we give thanks, God moves to deliver the balance of all of our expectation for Shiloh 2023 Pro. 23:18; 24:14. Remember, the end is ordained to deliver the fullness of what is ordained for the season Hab. 2:3; Ecc. 7:8. As we engage in thanksgiving today, the last day of Shiloh 2023, we move God to deliver all of our expectations.
In conclusion, there is no season for anyone among us to suffer in life again. God has come down to change our story, take away our sweat, and wipe away our tears. We only need to take up the covenant responsibility of thanksgiving.
