How are you today? I hope you are well?
We are living in a society where a number of people aren't aware of the benefits that they are entitled to. As a professional that works for the government, I regularly equip people on what they are entitled to. I also have to keep abreast with the laws and guidance so that I can give the right advice to people as I wouldn't want anyone to miss out on their entitlements. But do you know what? A number of Christians do miss out on their entitlements or they aren't aware of their kingdom entitlements. They aren't aware of what the Lord has done for them.
As a teacher of the Word, a Faith Blogger, a Church Pastor, an Evangelist, and an Author (I wear many hats), I thought to remind you of some of the kingdom benefits of being a Christian during this Thanksgiving season.
1 Corinthians 15:57 says "But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
Who gives you victory? God
Through whom? Jesus Christ
When last did you thank God for the victory that you have in Christ?
Psalm 103:1-5, GNT says:
"Praise the Lord, my soul! All my being, praise His holy name! Praise the Lord, my soul, and do not forget how kind He is. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He keeps me from the grave and blesses me with love and mercy. He fills my life with good things so that I stay young and strong like an eagle.
Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name. Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits; who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases."
The above Psalm is reminding you that God forgives ALL your sins and not some sins. God heals ALL diseases and not some diseases. God keeps you from the grave and blesses you with His love and mercy. These are some of the kingdom benefits for those that honour the Lord.
As you celebrate today's Thanksgiving, please take time out to remember all the benefits of the Lord over you, your family, and your nation. Give thanks to God.
