Seven Vital principles for creating abundance and terminating lack
5. The key of thanksgiving.
It is impossible for you to be thankful and yet be unfruitful. Every thankful heart is a fruitful heart. Destroy the yoke of lack through thanksgiving. Thanksgiving brings increase. Jesus gave thanks. He took the bread and fishes, he gave thanks and immediately, the force that goes with thanksgiving took over. That force is the force of multiplication. Whenever you thank God, you release the anointing for multiplication. There is a local proverb that says if you thank a great man for what he has done, he will do more. How much of it do we give to the King of kings? God has given us so much that we should be thankful for. I challenge you today, try and transform your home. Make your home an atmosphere of praise and dance. Make a compilation of spiritual songs and slot it into your CD player. It will bring a transformation in your home; the atmosphere of the presence of God will descend supernaturally. When this happens, angels begin to move in your home. I do this regularly in my home. It is quite refreshing. It creates supernatural abundance. Psa. 67:5-7 says, “Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.” If you want the blessings of God which make rich and add no sorrow, utilize the key of thanksgiving. Thanksgiving terminates the mystery of ingratitude. Mal. 2:2, “If you will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings; yea, I have curse them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.” The mystery of ingratitude brings curse and anywhere there is a curse, there will be lack, scarcity and poverty. Terminate scarcity with praise. Praise is the highest form of prayer. When you pray, God sends an angel but when you praise, God comes down. The easiest way to bring down the presence of God is through thanksgiving. If you want your tank of blessing to be full, become thankful. Every thanksgiving exercise brings down the glory of God. There is a code of multiplication that is embedded in every thanksgiving; it carries the code to multiply; a very powerful force that is unstoppable. When thanksgiving is directed towards the omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient one who said let there be light and there was light, when he comes down he transforms the environment into Bethel; angels begin to descend and ascend, miracles happen on their own accord, grace begins to increase and multiply, intractable situations are turned around, problems dissolve and disappear, mountains move, challenges bow, the glory of God is revealed and the atmosphere of heaven is brought down. There will be so much grace, so much power at your beck and call. Even in your relationship with people, learn to say thank you, it does not cost you anything but makes you a better person. It sets the right atmosphere for convivial relationship. It says a lot about who you are.
- Father, thank you. I have received your word today, help me to be thankful. Fill my heart with thanksgiving in the name of Jesus Christ.
- Grant me grace never again to be ungrateful to your blessings, to your graces, to the miracles you perform in my life and to your love and your kindness. I thank you for your goodness and your faithfulness in Jesus’ mighty name I pray.
