“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” – 1Ths. 5:18.
Thanksgiving is a mystery of God’s kingdom; it is the mystery for handing over the issues of one’s life to God 2Chr. 20:22-24. In essence, when the believer engages in thanksgiving, God automatically step into the affairs of concern in his life. When God steps into any issue, it is turned into a testimony no matter the situation Mk. 10:27. This is why the scriptures instruct the believer to give thanks in everything, with the understanding that it is God’s will for everyone in Christ 1Ths. 5:18.
Understanding how thanksgiving works to deliver testimonies.
Paul and Silas were directed by the Holy Ghost to Macedonia in their missionary work Acts 16:7-10. They got to the city of Philippi, the Holy Spirit through them set a young lady who had been possessed by an evil spirit free Acts 16:16-18. The deliverance got the master of the young lady annoyed and stirred the whole city up, which resulted in them being thrown into the prison Acts 16:19-24. Paul and Silas engaged in thanksgiving to get God into their situation, and they were supernaturally brought out of the prison Acts 16:25-30.
The scriptures make us to understand that thanksgiving will always invoke God’s presence into the believer’s situation Psa. 100:4; 22:3. And God’s presence will always subdue mountains and turn every difficult situation with man to testimony Hab. 3:17-19. This is why giving God thanks guarantees the turning of believer’s trials into testimonies.
Jesus is Lord!
