PROVOKE YOUR FLOURISHING BY THANKSGIVING

Psalm 107:22 -“And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.”

Many people would rather complain than see any good in any seemingly negative situation. For example, you missed or didn’t get an opportunity which you considered an opportunity of a lifetime and then you begin to complain; instead of giving thanks to God for the opportunities He blessed you with previously. The children of Israel that left Egypt wandered in the wilderness for forty years because they complained and murmured instead of giving God thanks.
It was NEVER recorded in the scriptures that a certain individual gave thanks to God and God’s wrath immediately fell on such one. There are numerous benefits in thanksgiving; it is a sure way to flourish consistently. Consistent thanksgiving is a sure way to flourish consistently.
In Matthew 14:16-21, Jesus took five loaves and two fishes gave thanks and there was multiplication. In 1Kings 3:4-5, Solomon gave thanks via sacrifice to God and God visited Him. Solomon flourished beyond the imagination of the men in His days. Search out a reason to give God thanks in every situation.
