BE THANKFUL ANYHOW!!
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
# Praise and Thanksgiving is a master key that unlocks demonic prison houses!
(Psalms 29:11-: The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.)
(Habakkuk 3:18 -: yet I will rejoice in the LORD;
I will take joy in the God of my salvation.)
# Dragons are projections of our fears, horrible constructions of all that might hurt us. . And only the lethal weapon of praise and Thanksgiving can disarm the Dragon of fear
# I know that many of us, the word happy does not describe our emotional state at the moment at all.
# With all that has befallen some of us, in the last couple of months- what’s there to happy about? You will say. I am tempted to agree with you!
# With the lost of loved ones, broken relationships, lost of jobs and income. Happy no, that's not for me, you will say!
# Some of us are still battling with the last doctor's report - you, literally have a death sentence hanging over your head - How can I be thankful, you will say, I feel you!
# Some of you are yet, to come to terms with the tragic and sudden death of your loved ones.
# Some of you have become care-givers overnight to a once vibrant and full of life loved ones
# Some of you are watching and looking at your loved ones helplessly and hopelessly as they match towards the gates of death, as you remain powerless to help them.
# Some of you are still battling with the guilt and shame of yesterday’s event, because your family and friends will just not find a place in their hearts to forgive you.
# Some of you are dealing with insurmountable loads of financial problems.
# For some of you, your marriage is on the verge of breaking up.
# Some of you are dealing with the reality of betrayal and broken relationship as we speak
# For some of you, it's the pain of dealing with a troubled and abusive relationship.
# For some of you, it is the thought of how you and your family will make through this week without you losing your mind, where will the money come from to feed your family and pay the bills.
# For some of you, you are troubled by your children's behaviour and future.
# For some of you, it is the addiction and perverted lifestyle of your family that is eating you up
# Because of this, and many other reasons too many to mention right now, you may be tempted to think, and believe that, there is nothing happy about this, day and there is nothing in my life, to be thankful for -
# That is a big lie from the pit of hell, you still have so much to be thankful for -
# You are a survivor and a fighter - Say to yourself. I am still here -
(Habakkuk 3:17-: Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines,
the produce of the olive fail
and the fields yield no food,
the flock be cut off from the fold
and there be no herd in the stalls,)
# My brother, my sister you are still here, even in your pain and brokenness, you are still here-
# Thanksgiving is you and me saying it may be bad, right now, but am still here, and am still hopeful. I still have something to be grateful for
(Habakkuk 3:18-: yet I will rejoice in the LORD;
I will take joy in the God of my salvation.)
# I know my God, can and He will still make something good out of what is left of my life
# A heart of gratitude and a mouth full of praise and Thanksgiving amid your pains and suffering is a declaration of war to the enemy. It's you saying you can't break me, devil
# It is you saying though, He slays me yet, will I trust in Him.
# It is you saying to the enemy - listen devil there is more to be thankful for, in my life, than there is, to complain about in my life.
# Thanksgiving is you saying to all who cares to know that God is not done with you, yet
# Praise and Thanksgiving is you, saying - in your face devil. I dare to be thankful despite my present difficulty and station in life.
# As you make bold to be thankful even in pain and in tears- I join my faith with you, to pray this prayer over you and your family, in Jesus mighty name
# I pray that the Lord who specializes in wiping away hidden tears, wipe away your tears and give you a reason to rejoice publicly this Thanksgiving weekend, in Jesus mighty name
(Job 10:12-: Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.)
I pray that the mercy and favour of the Lord will speak for you and your family
# I pray that the angels of the Lord will visit you and your family, even as they visited Abraham and Sarah
# I pray that you and your family will enter into your season, and time of life, as God replace your tears with laughter, in Jesus mighty name
(Genesis 18:10-: And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.)
# I pray for you, that as you praise the Lord, in tears, heaven shall give you, your own Isaac, in Jesus name
# I pray that the same God, who showed up for Sarah and silenced her mockers and filled her mouth with laughter. I pray that the same God shows up for your family today, in Jesus' mighty name.
# l pray that the same God, who changed Sarah's story and gave her a new song. Visits you and your family today, and give you a new song of joy, in Jesus mighty name
# I pray that our God who specializes in unscheduled and unplanned visitation, show up in your home suddenly today with an unscheduled miracle - in Jesus name
# I pray that that invisible and hidden need in your life become a visible miracle for all to see, in Jesus mighty name
# I pray that every unspoken prayer request and the cry of your heart becomes an open testimony for all to see and rejoice with you in Jesus mighty name
# I pray that All who laughed at you and mocked you behind your back, like they did Sarah, shall be made to rejoice with you in the open, in Jesus mighty name
# I pray for you that Anything coursing you pain and sleepless nights shall be converted into testimony through the mighty visitation of the Lord, in Jesus mighty name
# I pray that God's divine visitation shall silent all the voices of your mockers, in Jesus mighty name.
# I pray that your time and season of life for life-changing testimony begins now, in Jesus' mighty name.
# I pray the Lord's hand will wipe away your tears with an Isaac kind of miracle.
# I pray that from today your mockers shall never see your tears or hear you, cry for help again, in Jesus mighty name
# I pray that the thought of you will cause someone to be thankful to God, today.
# I pray that you will be one of the reasons someone is praising the Lord, this weekend
# I pray the Lord, remembers you and your family for good, in Jesus mighty name.
Don't stop giving.
Don't stop helping.
Don't stop believing.
Don't stop trusting.
Don't stop being kind.
Don't stop hoping.
# Don't stop expecting and don't stop praising. For yet, in a little while, the heavens over you shall open for God's supernatural visitation.
# Child of God, keep praising, keeping thanking Him, for your labour of love is not going to be in vain-
# I make bold to say, to you, hand in there, for it will all end in praise for you and your family
-(Habakkuk 3:19-: GOD, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer's;
he makes me tread on my high places.
To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments.)
(And It Shall End In Praise)
