THE WISDOM OF THANKSGIVING
🔶🔸 METAMORPHOSIS (#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr Isaiah Wealth)
🗓 Saturday, 30th September 2017
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT
(1 Thessalonians 5:18)
“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
🔹 🔹 🔹
Primarily, thanksgiving acknowledges God as the Source of our blessings. It is a joyous declaration that what we have received came from God, an act of faith which preserves our blessings and keeps the devil out indefinitely. You are about to find out why.
Our scriptural text today instructs us to give thanks, not only for the things that seem to have happened as desired, but even for those that seem not to be working. That is why it says for us to give thanks ‘in everything’, which also means in every situation.
By wisdom, a believer understands that every good and perfect gift comes from God. Thus, when we thank God even for the things that seem out of place, we are calling God in to intervene and bring out possibility out of a seeming impossibility. This is the wisdom that makes all things work together for God, even when those things were never favourable in themselves. Isn’t that something to shout about? Glory to God!

🔸Ponder on those things that seem not to be working in your life right now and deliberately thank God for each one of them now.
🔸SAY: I decree and I declare that my soul will bless the lord at all times.

🌏 CHRISTIAN MISSION FOCUS
Let’s pray for Puerto Rico 🇵🇷…
Puerto Rico is traditionally Catholic, but evangelicals have grown steadily from 0.1% to 25.2 % in 2010. There is also a large charismatic movement in the Catholic Church, which is otherwise in marked decline now. Sadly, the churches make little impact on the many social needs of the nation.
🙏🏽We are praying for the Christians in the land that they will be strengthened in their inner man to represent Christ everywhere they find themselves.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Father, thank you for the revelation of wisdom you gave me this month, I give you praise in Jesus name.
🔹 PRAYER OF REDEDICATION
Dear father, I thank you for your great love towards me, and the privilege to be called your son. I declare my love for you today and surrender to your will. Bring me into the fullness of your grace this day even as I fellowship with your Son through the word and your Holy Spirit. I consecrate my whole body, soul and spirit to you right now. Let your will be done in my life today in Jesus name. Amen
