Full of Thanksgiving

The enemy of our souls wants us to complain and grumble, but the Lord Jesus Christ reminds us to be full of THANKSGIVING!

Reality? Most of us have more than we ever need.

A simple exercise: write down 100 things you’re thankful for. As you focus on the blessings God has given, you will be overwhelmed with gratitude.

These blessings are innumerable. But remember: the enemy will take just one thing and try to convince you that you should be miserable because you don’t have it. Our common enemy is a liar from the beginning. Don’t listen to this thief.

But God is good and true forever! Listen for His still small voice whispering “Incline your ears and follow My ways. Listen to Me, and your soul shall live in good things; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you” (Isaiah 55:3)

I know this: with the Lord as my shepherd, “I shall not want.”

Bless the Lord, O my soul – worship His holy name!

Don’t “GIVE UP” but “TAKE UP” God’s promises for your life!

I rec’d this from a brother in New Zealand. I believe this encouragement is very timely for all of us: 

When we look more closely at where many Christians are at in their lives, and what they are (or are not) accomplishing, we realize that we do have to keep encouraging one another to enable us to fulfill the calling and purpose of God for our lives. He has not called us to walk and live in defeat; to be discouraged; to give-up and become negative and defeated about life generally. Jesus came to give us much more than that! He came to give us “Life, and life more abundantly (“super-abundant, excessive, above the ordinary measure”)” (John 10:10). Know that the life Jesus gives us is so totally different ~ and far better ~ than any other kind of life that can be found this side of eternity. Do not forget that.
