Thanksgiving: The Hidden Secret of World Changers

This morning I come to tell you “DO NOT FORGET.” In this world of busyness, where everyone is doing something, and everything is calling the attention of everyone. I think you need to take a break and think, reflect and count your blessings. This is what I have come to understand it is easy to forget. However, forgetfulness comes with a price and negligence comes with a penalty, because ignorance is not an excuse in a law court.
The author of Psalms 103:2 said, “Praise the Lord, my soul, and FORGET NOT all his benefits.” I know you are asking Rotimi do you mean, I should be thankful all the time? Yes, I think you are right, you should be thankful all the time and not just today. I am not saying you should be 100% perfect, there are things you could forget, and God will not penalize, but not Thanksgiving. You can forget your meal, daily hygiene, sleep, submit your academic assignments, to show up for work and don’t inform your supervisor, you can forget to tell your spouse that you love him or her. It is okay to forget to be a responsible parent, I mean you could forget to file your tax return, to pay your mortgage and car loan. If you cannot forget those necessities of life, you should always remember to give God thanks. Outside your breath nor of the above life necessities could be accomplished, so the person who gave you the breath commanded let everything that has breath praise me (Ps 150:6). This is a big secret. Thanksgiving is non-negotiable.

King Hezekiah fell sick in Isaiah 38 because he does not give God glory for what God did in chapter 37. Anytime you see King Nebuchadnezzar you could inquire about his experience when he became beast because of his refusal to give God the glory (Daniel 4:28-37). One king who neither studies the happening in Babylon nor asks questions from King Nebuchadnezzar repeated the same error in Acts 12:21-23, he was not given the opportunity to learn. Instead, he was smitten to death on his own throne.

The Secret
God created everything in Genesis one, but he did not create thanks for Himself. What He did to get His thanks is, that He made it a point of duty for all of His creature to appreciate Him at all time. Remember, What Apostle Peter said, “You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a Holy Nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth THE PRAISE OF HIM WHO has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1Peter 2:9). Anytime you give God thanks; He gives you access to whatever you need and wants in life (Ps. 100).

Thanksgiving is a miracle. In the beginning, God breathed into a statue and the standing clay became a living being. The breath of God, therefore, is the source of happening in human. David then said, let everything who has that breath of God remind Him (Ps 150:6). If you forget everything and remind God of his breath in you, He will remember and give you all that is within you that you need outside you (Ps103:2).

I was in the Rev Sam Adeyemi Leadership class in 2009, among many things that I learned was the secret to access anybody. My mentor Jim Rohn said, “Everything is within reach.” Putting those two life secrets together, I had developed an intellectual muscle to access everything that I need, including God. Therefore, I can boldly say, that there are many contact phone numbers to access heaven, but they are only two direct phone numbers to God. The two emergency lines to God: complaint (Complicate things – Jer. 13:15-17, Mal 2:1-2), and thanksgiving (Multiply things). God disdain complains line (1Cor 10:10 & Number 11:1-2) while thanksgiving line makes Him get things done for you by Himself – ask Paul and Silas (Act 16:24-26).

Today, Thursday the 22nd November 2018, is not a good day to complain, let it be a good time to show your appreciation to your creator. He knows your need and knows your name. Regardless of the number of people in the world, He knows your need.

One day, I had the privilege to visit the Salvation Army in the state that I currently live. I saw homeless, hopeless and needful people and families, who were born in the United States of America. I also drove the street at night, and I saw people who slept on the roadside because they are homeless. Immediately that song came to me that all I have to say is thank you, Lord. I wasn’t born in the US, yet in my six years in the United States I have never beg for money nor look up to the government to pay my rent. I had paid people’s rent and fed families and invested thousands of dollars into God’s kingdom (To God be all the glory). God blesses me with the most beautiful lady in the world, the uncommon super three kids, and a great future with clarity. They told me I have an accent yet, I broke their records and set a new record. They said is not possible, yet God silences the enemy and enthrones me. Other may forget their old ways in Nigeria, but for me, God has done me well that is why say, He is God from beginning to end, and there is no place for argument.

Today, I challenge you to write down three things why you are thankful. You cannot afford to forget, but you must be thankful. Thanksgiving is a commandment; and commandments are lamps (Pro 6:23). Thanksgiving is not a principle; that may work or might not, instead, it is a mystery that always works.

I will leave you with three secrets:

1. Do not forget God’s goodness and mercies (P118:1)
2. Do Not Forget God’s Goodness and Mercies
3. Repeat 1 and 2.

…be inspired, live an abundant life and help others because life is good.

I think we should pay more attention to this great truth on this special day. If one day out of 365 days of the year is slated for thanksgiving, in my own understanding I guess we should know what we are doing and why we are doing it. Common knowledge has painted wrong picture to us about this fact and we have all successfully received the lies that thanksgiving is a turkey day. No it is not, thanksgiving is for thankgivers that won’t stop giving thanks and always remain thankful.

Regardless of your day to day challenges and your super uncertainty of life. Your breath is extremely imperative in life for continuity. Remember, continuity is the rule of the game in the school of success. This was the very reason why one of the renowned ancient singers named king David said in one of his songs that let everything that has breath praise the lord. The reason is simple, your breath is what you need to provoke God for the next. Also you might not have what you want, but you don’t have what you use to have. There is always reason to be thankful, but ingrates will never see reason why they should. So, if you are part of thanks givers, I want you to be careful and don’t associate with people that are not.

Below are the characteristics of a thanks givers.

1. Great Thinkers: The depth of your thoughts are the determinant of the height of your gratitude, and remember gratitude is the secret of altitude. Your understanding of how life works is the key factor to your action. Therefore, if you are not a deep thinker you will never be an anointed thanksgiver. It is from thinking that you will know that, you can of yourself do nothing that is, it is God that works in you both to will and do His good pleasure. Thoughts will let you know that it is by the Lord’s mercy that you are not consumed. It is your thought that will let you know that you don’t qualify to be promoted but God in His infinite mercy still promoted you anyways. If you see people that are not reasoning, mediating and thinking on this great day, I want you to run for your life and depart to a far place. Why? Murmurs steal joy, so refuse to associate with them.

2. Great Believers: Faith is a currency that has purchasing power to acquire anything in the world. In fact, without faith it is impossible to please God and if you can’t please God you will never have a reason to be thankful. Today some are in deep regret and trouble, simply because they don’t know how to engage or trade what they have for what they want. So, it is not good enough to associate with great thinkers, you must also befriend great believers. Thoughts alone does not position you to be thankful, you have to step up and believe in the reality of your thoughts. Today, lack of faith has successful stolen the joy of many, by this reason they became lonely, rejected and sad. On this great day, carefully identify people that don’t have faith in themselves and depart from them with speed.

3. Great Workers: Work is the force that bring both thoughts and faith into reality. Therefore, it is not enough to associate yourself with people that think well and believe strong but it is much safer to be around people that are working. Work is the only ticket of life that gives access to the unlimited opportunity that life offers. People that don’t work will never have a reason to be thankful. Why? They don’t have a platform for the invisible God to leverage. The reason is simple, the invisible work with the visible in other to provide the possible. That is, the invisible God always work with the visible men to provide the possibility to all impossible situations. Results and answers are always waiting for the workers. Laxity cancel opportunities, nullify chances and destroy greatness. Please, work hard to stay away from people that are not thinkers, depart from people that are not believers, and run away from lazy people.

Even as you celebrate today, I want you to know that results is not enough in the school of success but the continuity of it is the key. To be thankful next year you have to engage and embrace the above identity secrets of thanks givers. Always see reason in this season, and appreciate what you have received, because it is the secret that qualifies you for more.

Happy thanksgiving!

…keep living, keep going and keep winning. Everything is possible if you are positive.

Thanksgiving Day

Numbers 11:1New King James Version (NKJV)

Now when the people COMPLAINED, it displeased the Lord; for the Lord heard it, and His anger was aroused. So the fire of the Lord burned among them, and consumed some in the outskirts of the camp.

There are two things that get the attention of God with speed and they are:

1. Complains
2. Thanksgiving

The reason being, both are coming from the heart and that is where God dwells. Complain is saying God is not capable while thanksgiving is appreciating Him in the middle of storm. It is easy to see what is not working for you and how it is working for others. It’s easy to see how life is not fair to you, how you have labored to make things happen and yet everything is stagnated and all effort has been futile.

Thanksgiving is not a gift but a choice. Complain is not a curse but a choice. You can still choose to give thanks because things are not working for NOW. It can be either God is preparing something bigger and better for you or is not the right time for you to have what you think you need NOW. Either ways God is listening to both Complain and Thanksgiving. Complain is telling Him that He is too slow to make good his promises in your life. While thanksgiving is telling Him that He Can Do Exceedingly Abundantly Above That You Can Imagine or Ask.

It is easier to complain than to give thanks and it diligence to give thanks than to complain. It is easier to see what it yet to be done than what has been done. But this is what I have come to understand about life. You cannot mix a life of blessing with a life of murmuring. There is no relationship between good and bad, neither can you see darkness and light together.

One of the secret that makes God’s own Country world power is a day out of 365days that is set aside to give glory to God For his goodness and mercies for the year. I have not heard of that anywhere in the world. Use this great opportunity today to reflect on God’s goodness in your life, and count your blessing. Remember every good and perfect gift comes from the lord.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Psalm 150:6New King James Version (NKJV)
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord

Understanding The Place Of Thanksgiving

ThanksIt is foolishness to be shameful of what is gainful–Bishop David Oyedepo

I know you don’t have reasons to give thanks but I will show you why you need to give thanks.

… If it had not been the lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us: (Psalms 124:1, kjv)

If you are not happy with your present situation, you are an ingrate. It is what happen that you know, what should have happened you don’t know.

“What If” Is the secret of appreciation.
What if you are dead will you be complaining about life?
What if you are still single will you be complaining about your spouse?
What if you are jobless will you be complaining of the increase in pay?
What if you are blind will you be complaining about what is going wrong around you?
What If your leg is amputated will you be complaining about the shoe that you don’t have?

This is what God told me in the year 2010. If you don’t know why you should PRAISE Me, I will not have reason to RAISE you. So I Learnt That Praising God Breeds Lifting Of Men. The goodnews is that there is a wide gap from where I was in 2010 to where I am in 2014, if you know me in person you will know what am talking about.It Is All About Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving Works Wonder.

Oh that men would praise the lord for His goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! (Psalms 107:8 kjv)

God is forever right it is we that needs to fix ourselves. If you and I can think right and blind your eyes to the temporary, i am sure we will command more result. Everything has expiring date including our challenges, the future is bright for the thanksgivers.

Oh that men would praise the lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! (Psalms 107:15 kjv)

Have you think about how much your bill will be by now if you were to be on oxygen or life-support machine for just one day, now think about 30days, and 365days, if you think is not real visit the nearby Hospitals. Life fortune are drain in no time by sickness and diseases, if you are not in that situation. Open your mouth and praise the lord for His good and His mercy endures forever.

Oh that men would praise the lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! (Psalms 107:21 kjv)

You are complaining about your spouse while someone is praying to God to have one. You are complaining about your work, while someone is ready to do any kind of work in order to chase hunger away from his family.

Oh that men would praise the lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! (Psalms 107:31 kjv)

You are complaining that you are not on top of your class. Remember, someone is still awaiting admission. You are complaining about the increase in pay, someone can’t wait to be pay the 50% of what you earn.

Thanksgiving Is Only For The Wise
Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the loving kindness of the lord. (Psalms 107:43 kjv)

Song In My Heart
God You Are So Good,..
God You Are Kind…

Those that don’t think enough and can’t think through will surely become victims of life circumstances.
