“…why is this foreigner the only one who came back to give thanks to God?” And Jesus said to him, “Get up and go; your faith has made you well.” Luke 17:18‭-‬19 (GNT)

Most times when people hear messages of being thankful to God for everything, they look at you and wonder what they should thank God for because judging from their current state, things are so bad for them to the point where they don’t see what they should thank God for. However, the question is, is it really true that there is nothing to thank God for? The answer to that question is No.

Beloved, we must come to the understanding of the fact that irrespective of the things we are going through or have gone through, God is still God and He has been faithful to us in many other areas of our lives. And for this reason, we ought to acknowledge the things He has done and give Him thanks for it. Interestingly, when we acknowledge the things He has done for us so far, it becomes easy for us to step into God’s next plan for our lives. 

Today, there are many people who have not been able to step into God’s next act of favor because they are not grateful. They are so engrossed with all the negatives to the point where they have shut the doors for the positives. So, to avoid living like this, I encourage you to acknowledge the things God has done in your life and be truly grateful to Him for it. Let Him know how grateful you are for the health He made you enjoy, and let Him know that you are grateful for keeping you alive and making all things work together for your good. When you do this, you have operated a law that will always lift you up and launch you into God’s next act of favor. Hallelujah! 


When you give thanks, you activate a law that catapults you into God’s next act of favor!


Glorious and everliving Father, we thank you for your love and your mercy. I thank you for divine health and sound mind. I thank you for your provisions and preservation. I thank you for delivering me from the evil agenda of the wicked. Receive all the glory now and forever in the name of Jesus. Amen!
