A Year of ThanksLiving

"You are worthy O Lord, Invisible God, the Miracle Worker, You are worthy O Lord"
It was 3am and Thomas used his pillow to cover his ears, this born again Mr Felix has started again, the man won't let the whole compound sleep, he will be disturbing everyone with praise and worship but wait a minute, the man truly had results to show for it. When he just moved into the compound, he didn't really have anything but his apartment is one of the nicest and the man has money.
Thomas couldn't sleep again, he had complained about Mr. Felix and mocked him for going to church all the time but he couldn't deny the man's results. He on the other hand with all his degrees and certifications was experiencing financial troubles and many other issues. Mr Felix certainly knew something, maybe he needed to attend Mr. Felix church, Thomas decided to see Mr. Felix in the morning.
The bible says in Psalm 84:7 (ESV) 
They go from strength to strength; each one appears before God in Zion.

If you have been a thankful Christian this year, you can look back and see that your life has improved! You may not be where you want to be but you are definitely not where you started last year, you have gone from strength to strength! Challenges may have come to bring you down but you overcame! This is proof that God is with you.
The difference between those who see results and those who are on a spot is their attitude of gratitude. The bible says in 1 Samuel 2:9b (MSG) No one makes it in this life by sheer muscle!
So if it's not by financial muscle or intellectual muscle or influential muscle, how do people make it ? How come some people's lives are getting better everyday while some are digressing?
The answer is in Jeremiah 30;19 (ESV) Out of them shall come songs of thanksgiving, and the voices of those who celebrate. I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will make them honored, and they shall not be small.
The secret to consistent, unexplainable increase is thanksgiving! If you have not been grateful to God from January, it's not too late, God can still multiply His blessings on your life.
In this month of December don't complain! You have nagged from January till now, try thanksgiving and gratitude and watch God turn things around.

My 20 year dream is to see the Gospel preached to a billion people through the social media. You too can be a social media evangelist, kindly share and repost this Gospel of Jesus Christ so that others can be blessed just like you have been blessed. Thank you for reading. Shalom
