Increasing your Possessions through Thanksgiving

We have talked about how confession brings possession: requires you to speak to yourself the scriptures that you have personalised every morning immediately you wake up and every night before you go to sleep until you realise the manifestation thereof. Now by the use of the same mouth you can increase you possessions through thanksgiving.

How Christ increased His possessions

You may be familiar with the incidence were Jesus feed four thousand men besides women and children from seven loaves of bread and a few fish. The bible records that Christ blessed the bread and fish and then served the multitude. Actually the multitude ate and there were even seven left over baskets of fragments. (Mark 8:1-8)

By acknowledging God as the source of your possessions you summon Him to be a concerned party in your matters. King David put it this way, “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:6 KJVR)

Now if God be for you in your endeavours, He will make sure that your purposes are established. Remember, with God all things are possible.

By His grace

In another incidence Jesus feed five thousand men with five loaves and two fish. However Christ does something remarkable here. He made the men sit down by hundred and by fifties. (Mark 6:38-43)

If you are a bible numerology student you will appreciate that 100 and 50 are products of 5, the number for grace. Jesus was demonstrating that what was about to happen was not by works but by grace. There two ways to increase in the bible. The first is by works i.e. seed time and harvest. The second is by grace i.e. unmerited favour.

A lifestyle of thanksgiving summons the grace of God to be ushered in your life abundantly. Remember that in the Old Testament the cloud of glory of the LORD had filled the house of God when the Levites praised and gave thanks to God. (2 Chronicles 5:12-14) However, the cloud of the glory of God also comes with grace because when God’s cloud descended on Moses (Exodus 34:5-7) the LORD proclaimed that He is gracious and merciful…..

It is an established concept
We have notice that the miracle of loaf multiplication is recorded at two different occasions in the Book of Mark. A thing that God repeats is always established. Joseph told Pharaoh that, “Since the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice, it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.”(Genesis 41:32)

What we have learnt is that when you give thanks to God for all things, His favour and miraculous power will rest upon. This is an forever established law. Walk in it and thereby you will increase all you possessions.
