THE OVERCOMER’S CELEBRATION

OF THANKSGIVING.

 

1 Thessalonians 5:18 “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Sometimes the circumstances of our lives are not always the best. In fact, they may be downright bad, but still, we are to look for something to be thankful for! And there is ALWAYS something positive for which we can be thankful! Now, I believe there are at least three attitudes that steal away our grati- tude. These are: (1) Our pride: This is the attitude that says, "Nobody ever gave me anything, I worked hard for everything I have. We feel that we have no one to thank but ourselves. (2) A critical spirit or persistent complaining: Instead of looking at the negatives in our lives and complaining, we must look at and for the positives and give thanks. (3) Carelessness: Someone once said that if the stars only came out once a year, we would stay out all night to watch them. But they are there every night and we have grown accustomed to them. Therefore most people regard thanksgiving with significance.

 

A positive, thankful person is a great witness in this “dark” world. We only shine and our light shines for the Lord when we are thankful- when we live it and express it!. Being thankful will increase our personal happiness. Most of us think that our happi- ness is determined by our circumstances but really our happiness is determined by our attitude and by our perspective in life not by our circumstances (Happenings). This will also improve our witness for Christ. Having a noticeable countenance of thankfulness and joy will certainly make us better witnesses for Christ. We attract the lost with our spirit of gratitude because the world is so dark and depressing and ungrateful. This will also enhance our relationships. Husband could you imagine about how much your marriage would improve if you come home one day with a gift or some flowers and just tell your wife how thankful you are for all she does. As a wife, you could add more value to your marriage by telling your husband how much you appreciate him when the opportunity presents itself. Kids, think about how much better things would go for you in the home if you tell mum and dad once in a while how grateful you are for the money they spend on you and the things they do for you.....Continues here

 

JESUS IS LORD!

by PASTOR MIKE ILELADEWA

Weekly Devotion:

Conquering Word for the Week

 

Week 9: 1st March 2015.

 

Exodus 14:13-14 (KJV)

“And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you today: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace”.

 

Commentary:

It has been truly said that “man’s extremity is God’s opportunity”. The long-enslaved Israelites had at last been released from their bondage in Egypt, only to be pursued and trapped by Pharaoh and his powerful army. God, the omnipotent instructed them to do the hardest thing of all- stand still in faith, and let the Lord fight the battle. As you are in this type of situation, what you must remember is not to fight for yourself, but to be still and trust in the Lord, and you will see Him work mightily on your behalf as you go through this week in Jesus name.

Testimonies:

 

I am beholding the beauty of the Lord, surely God is in this house and I did not know. I just happen to move from Plymouth to ivy bridge and I was amazed and how God has been my provider once more, I was amazed more on how he opened my eyes to look at the things that he has done. He came in ordinary, he didn’t come in a mighty miracles. I really thank the Church especially people that supported me during my moving, God is awesome. It really moved me to the extent that I had promised God to visit each every one of you every Saturday.
