Your Word Makes Me Thankful!

The Lord does great things! He is full of wonders and it is amazing how He daily loads us with benefits. There was a time I would look hard before finding things to thank God for but when I started my thankful series last year, it opened my eyes, and I have become soo thankful. When we dwell in God's word and we let it minister to us, it's amazing how things become so colourful and bright. And like Jesus did, even in the midst of the storm, we can even sleep and even snore! We must let Christ's word dwell richly in us...that way, we can live thankful lives, genuinely thanking Him for His goodness and blessings.

Per time, there are things we desire and we keep on asking, and that i believe is unbelied because Mark 11:24 says 'Whatever you desire, WHEN you pray, believe that you receive and you will have it'. Asking over and over again is unbelief, we must believe and once we have prayed and believed, we must continue in thanksgiving, not doubting until we see the manifestation of what we have asked Him (i will probably write more about this sometime). He is faithful to do that which He promised and when we know this, we start to have a thankful heart.

I am thankful for God's word. It is amazing how as I spend time in the word, it changes my world view, impossible things are made possible, faith rises up more and more in my heart and Ieven have what to combat the devil with when doubts arise in my heart. The word of God is a title deed, when you have the title deed to a land, no matter how long it takes you to build on that land, you know it belongs to you. Over certain matters in my life, I have been able to move from the realm of doubt to being FULLY PERSUADED that He who promised is faithful. His word gives light!

I am thankful for how hubby and I have moved from becoming almost complacent Christians to ones that have living relationships with God. The last few months have seen us becoming stronger Christians, building our faith more and walking with God daily. I can say we're indeed believers! And I am so grateful for a man who leads me into the presence of God. Too many times, women are the most spiritual in their families and keep hoping their husbands can catch on.

My sister was looking for a job for some months and it was beginning to affect her self esteem and also causing some strain between us because she was having to depend on people. Hubby and I felt a leading to tell her to start a business of buying and selling, she was convinced she was not cut out for it, and found every possible excuse that made her unfit for the business including finances. We decided to give her a loan and I must say months after she's running a business and doing well. Her mentality has changed and she even talks of growing the business. I'm very thankful for this.

When my brother was going to start NYSC last year, it looked like he was going to such a far place, he was posted to a village withough PHCN power, they depend on generating sets only for those who could afford it. He has travelled so many times and God has kept him. In only a few weeks, he will be done and I'm thankful for this. I am also thankful in advance for direction from God for him.

This time last year, I knew I wanted to be published, every writer wants to get published but I didn't know that the year would end with a book that has my name on it. I'm thankful that FG got the initiave for the In My Dreams series and also that she got the inspiration to make it into a book. Now i can boldly say there's a book out with my name on it. I am thankful because my personal works will definitely get published. God has proved to me that all things are possible.

Complacency is a great disease and it has been the case with most Nigerians. All we do is talk in our houses but no action. I'm thankful that a new breed of Nigerians are starting to wake up who will not only fight for Nigeria in their actions but will also get down on their knees and fight for their countries. I'm grateful to God for being part of a church family that will not keep quiet against corrpution and every form of evil being perpetrated in this country. Dear God, I thank you because Nigeria will indeed be free in this year of Jubilee!

What are you thankful for?

I really commend people who honestly live the word.. and inspite of whatever comes their way.. They are still standing..It amazes me, cos I know it's not easy.. I've had several experiences of God talking to me.. and I get in line..Later I find myself lose it.. but it doesn't make me lose hope.. everyday. I try.. that's all I cling to.. God's mercy, his grace.. I'm inspired by your writeup.

Rita said...

The word of is sweet. It is amazing how I can read a word twice and get different meanings or different inspirations from it.

Thank God for the things you and your family have accomplished. I thank God even more for the great things HE is doing in your life. And I thank God for the testimonies you will put on this blog, in ur thankful series, this year.

It always lifts my spirit to read such posts as this. I'm thankful for you, that you choose to share with us. I am thankful also for the word of God in my life and I pray that your testimonies are permanent in His name. Amen.

Oh, there is so much to be thankful for in this post.

Complacency! You spoke so well on the topic and it's true. Many of us easily fall into complacency! I will do better in this regard.

I'm happy for your sister and I'm glad your brother's almost done with his service.

And as always, I'm thankful for the great things God is doing in your and hubby's life!

Whao! Just what I needed to read. The Word of God stays the same from generation to generation. Yes, I believe that when I pray, I'll get WHATEVER I desire.

I am totally inspired by this post. I join you in your thanksgiving to God Almighty!

Stay blessed!

very nice post.

I completely understand what you mean when you say asking over and over again is unbelief but that's only if you don't believe right? Lol does that make sense? Because I know if I have an exam in a week..every morning when I'm praying I'll pray that God helps me concentrate, that he touches the heart of whoever is going to grade my paper and stuff like that..not because I don't believe He did it for me the first time but ummm just to remind Him? Lol I don't know oh..And other times I just say "Lord, You know what is in our hearts and what we truly desire, please grant it to us if it is Your will, in Jesus' name" ..I think that one is harder sef..
I don't even know what I'm saying anymore so let me move on :)

I'm thankful for things I experience that make me stronger even if I don't get what I want at the end of the day..

And I'm thankful because even after gosh how long has it been? A long time sha..your blog continues to inspire me!

The Lord's faithfulness has no boundaries and much as i try i cant seem to thank him enough (like anyone can). I'm thankful for His direction and the new lease of life i've been enjoying lately.

Original Mgbeke said...

I always love your thankful posts, there is a lot to be thankful for my sister. Me sef, I am very thankful for the things which might appear to be basic to a lot of folk i.e a job, a car, shelter, great family and friends etc etc. God has truly been good and may he continue to bless you and your hubby in this 2010.
