“Know therefore that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments.”
I wish for your life to be filled with God’s love and blessing. Now I want to share the grace with you through the message titled “Give Thanks to the Faithful One.”
At Feast of Harvest comes, the people of Israel gave God the first crops and animals that they had reaped that year, shared tasty food with their neighbors, and gave thanks and glory to God. In out time we do not farm, so we commemorate the feast by giving thanks for the fruits in spirit and flesh.
What then are you to do in order to reap more abundant fruits and to give more thanks to our God?
First of all, you have t please God with faith. Hebrews 11:6 says, “Without faith it is impossible to please Him,” and you can please God with faith. If you possess the faith in which you can believe the word of God 100 %, you can absolutely believe that anything that seems impossible with human thoughts can be made possible. This is spiritual faith.
Our God created the whole universe and everything in it at His commands, and controls the history, and death and life, woes and blessings of mankind. That’s why nothing is impossible with Him, and He absolutely and faithfully fulfills whatever He has once said.
If you believe in the faithful and almighty One, you can completely believe in any kind of word that He tells you.
Secondly, you have to make your faith complete with deeds. James 2:22 says, “You see that faith was working with his works, and as a result of the works, faith was perfected.” So, if you truly believe in the word of God, you are sure to practice His word.
And if you have received the word of God by faith, you have to fervently and earnestly pray that God may accomplish the word. Then, He will guide you what and how to do in detail and thus you can receive blessing from Him.
Thirdly, you have to patiently show the deeds of your faith until you reap the fruits. Just as Galatians 6:9 says, “Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary,” you can unexceptionally reap when you do the word of God unchangingly.
But some people pray and practice the word but give up and feel disappointed when they fail to reap in a short time. If you change in the middle and give it up, you cannot reap. Only when you completely believe and practice, will you be able to receive blessing.
May each of you believe in the promises of the Faithful God and steadfastly practice them so that you can bear the fruits of abundant blessing on earth and everlasting rewards in heaven for whatever you have sowed and done by faith, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ I pray!
