From Thanksgiving To Blessings
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; – Ephesians 5:20
The words here Giving thanks in the Greek are one word, the transliterated word eucharisteo, which means…drum roll please…to be grateful. That isn’t really any surprise. I thought about this for a moment and wondered how many of us are grateful, even when we have had a bad day, the world seems to be against us and our backs are against the wall.
The truth is that regardless of what is going on around us, we need to be thankful for what Jesus did for us, we need to be grateful for what we do have. This is the one principle that can take you through the dark times. This is the principle that can take you from the pit to the palace.
God loves to hear His children, especially in the midst of their darkest nights, still giving Him thanks for what He has done for them, what He is doing for them and what He will do for them. Thanksgiving leads to trust and trust leads peace and peace leads to the manifestation of your blessings.

Have you received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour? Do you believe Jesus died to pay the price for your sin? That He was raised from the dead? Then just pray aloud, “Lord Jesus, I repent of all my sins. Come into my heart and be my Lord and Saviour.” If you believed in your heart and confessed with your mouth, you are Born-again. Let us know if you prayed this prayer.
