Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
Psalms 100:4 ????????????
Thanksgiving is all about worship for it's one of the keys that "opens the door" to God's presence. That's why the Psalmist encouraged that we come with thanksgiving - "to enter into His gates with thanksgiving..." ????
When we show gratitude to God it's an attitude that says, "God this is Your doing and we come in reverence appreciating Your goodness to us."
Thanksgiving can also precede God's performance of that which we ask. It declares our faith in that which we know God will do. "While we are yet praying...Daniel 6:10, Col 1:3 ???????? Also Jesus gave thanks before breaking the bread to feed the more than 5000 and even at the last supper...Matt 15:36 & 26:27 ????????
Thanksgiving moves God and even causes Him to act faster on our behalf. Amen! Daniel 2 & Luke 17:14 ????
So let's always have this attitude of gratitude; let's always worship with thanks, giving praise(s) unto our God.
This is the season to intensify Thanksgiving as we start the month - Awesome month of September! A month that God will remember us to produce great testimonies through us. Truly, God has been so good to us since the beginning of this year and He's well deserving of our WORSHIP.
????Lord, I come before You today and all I want to say is Thank You, Lord. Even without asking anything but giving You thanks for all You have done, All you're doing and All You will yet do! I bow before Your throne and say "I AM GRATEFUL, LORD ????....
It is good to give thanks to the Lord , And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
