HE GAVE THANKS-1
John 6:11 “And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down and likewise of the fishes as much as they would”
Giving thanks is the highest expression of faith. Jesus taught us a very deep spiritual principle at that instance. It is the principle of thanksgiving as it relates to faith.
A pivotal point when it comes to prayer, is our ability to give thanks even when we have not physically seen results. It is often difficult to do this because we normally tie the answers to our prayers to the physical manifestation.
The devil knows this and he’ll keep encouraging us to keep praying rather than give thanks for the answers. To get answers, we follow a cycle which begins with asking, confession of the word, giving of thanks and then answers.
Many believers follow this chain but breaks it off at the junction of thanksgiving. When you want to demonstrate and complete the cycle of faith, you must engage the force of thanksgiving.
When you give thanks, you are simply telling God that you trust Him totally. What Jesus simply did in thanksgiving was hanging the performance of the miracle on God.
If you tell a man “thank you” for something he is yet to do, you have put him in a position where he cannot but answer! There is power in saying thank you.
God is excited when you say thank you before manifestation because faith is at work. Jesus provoked heaven to come down and multiply the loaves and fishes even though the people were many.
John 6:11 “And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks he distributed to the disciples…”
Jesus didn’t attempt to distribute to the people until he had given thanks. All Jesus did was put heaven on the spot! Even if God wasn’t planning to multiply bread that day, his Son had committed him!
There is a way you pray and give thanks that puts God on the spot!
