Let the countdown begin!!!… Are you all ready with your offerings of thanksgiving, praise, wrapped in prayers to the almighty Father? If not, what are you waiting for? Come on, get on board! The thanksgiving train is about to leave the station…
But I am glad and thankful, for all that I have experienced, it was well worth it! And God brought me through it all! His awesomeness is beyond words.
After all it says in Deuteronomy 3:16: "6 So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
Matthew 26:7 tells us the story of the woman with the alabaster box
It reads: "7a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table"
In the midst of all her troubles, God reached down from far above the heavens and healed her with the power of His touch, He blessed her with the gift of His presence, and He elevated her with the soft caress of His words!
I am simply thankful for being "ABLE TO".
This year, I realised, more than ever before, that I am indeed 'ABLE' to do all things, through Christ who strengthens me, as it is written in Philippians 4:13 "13I can do all things through Christ, which strengthened me."
I thank God for "ABILITIES" because like Bezalel, He chose and filled me with His spirit and bestowed upon me gifts and the spirit of 'ENABLEMENT.'
Exodus 31: 1-3, reads: " 1 Then the Lord said to Moses, 2 “Look, I have specifically chosen Bezalel son of Uri, grandson of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. 3 I have filled him with the Spirit of God, giving him great wisdom, ability, and expertise in all kinds of crafts"
So, dear Father, at your feet, I place my box filled with Thank-you's for the gift of 'ABILITY' and I pray it is a sweet smelling fragrance to you. Glory be to your name.
Beautiful people, HERE IS YOUR INVITE. Today, WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL to the Almighty God for?
Have a wonderful day laying your thanks at the master's feet, whilst making Him famous along the way.
Sing out in praise
to the rock of ages
for the coverings of His Grace
Let your hearts sing out with joy
praising His holy name
His love abounds forever more
Thank Him for what He's done
embrace Him for what he is doing
wrapped in expectations
of things, yet to come
Oh! Ye people of Zion
Give a shout to the redeemer
the wonderful saviour
the one that truly matters
