“…Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good; his love is eternal!” Psalm 107:1 (GNT)

For many years, many of God’s people have grown up with the mind set that you should only be thankful to God, only when things are perfect. So, when the year is about to come to an end like this, instead of them to be happy and thankful for all He has done for them, they instead get very sad and depressed over the things that did not work out for them. In most cases, some people even get angry with God and make up their mind they will not come to church again or be committed to Him any more. The question then is, will such decisions change anything? The answer is No, rather it only pushes them away from God and that is exactly what the devil wants.

Beloved, no matter what you face or go through, it is important for you to understand that we do not give God thanks because things are perfect, rather we give God thanks because He is a perfect God, and He knows how to perfect all that concerns us. He knows how to comfort us and keep us on track. He knows how to make all things beautiful at the appropriate time. So, your responsibility to give thanks to God for who He is and for what He has done. When you do this, you position yourself to see the glory of God in your life. So, thank God no matter what. The Psalmist understood this principle and he said, “…Let us come before him with thanksgiving and sing joyful songs of praise…”Psalm 95:2 (GNT). Did you see that? Therefore, let your Thanksgiving come from the depth of your heart and trust me, it will activate unimaginable testimonies in your life. Praise God!


We don’t thank God because all things are perfect, we thank Him because He is a perfect God and knows how to perfect all things!


Dear Lord, I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for giving me life and sustaining it with your mighty hands. I do not take for granted the things you do for me and have done for me. I acknowledge all your wondrous works in my life and I have come today to say thank you Lord. Hallelujah!
