Glory to GOD for HIS WORD
In whatever circumstances always give thanks to GOD this is the Highest level of Prayer. Now the CHURCH all over ( meaning the true children of GOD) know that nothing comes by a surprise to GOD. HE knows you very well and HE loves you very much.
Thanking GOD our FATHER means:- you truly know HE is able and HE will answer you. You know that HE is aware of your situation and you are assured of your relationship together.
“in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
I Thessalonians 5:18
Jesus Christ when HE prayed HE began with thanksgiving to GOD the FATHER the results was amazing
“And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed them to the disciples, and the disciples to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted.”
John 6:11 NKJV
John 11:38-44 Here is when Jesus thanked GOD the Father for Lazaro who was dead and he woke up.
38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39 “Take away the stone,” he said.
“But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”
40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”
43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen,and a cloth around his face.
Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”
Always remember GOD loves You.
