I’m sharing this word from Brian Simmons and The Passion Translation Team:
“Giving thanks is important. Following today’s ‘whisper’ list at least five things you’re truly thankful for today, and feel your heart open to the release and peace that only comes from Him.”
I HEAR HIS WHISPER…
“I will free you when you give Me thanks”
The power of gratitude has been undervalued by My people. As you give Me thanks, I refine your soul and remove regret from your life. I will free you when you give Me thanks. The more you are satisfied, the more freedom and release from pain I will bring into your life.
The power of praise has yet to be fully activated. Greater than any force known to man is the power I release when you praise Me.
To receive My blessings and never give Me thanks is the mark of an unbeliever. To receive My blessings and be consumed with gratitude is the mark of a true worshipper. I call you to a life of gratitude.
Many are like those who grumbled to Moses in the wilderness. They could not give Me praise. For even as they grumbled, My glory cloud was over their heads. They looked at man and not at Me! Ingratitude is a disease that is easily spread among My people. But praises will break the curse, lift the veil, open the heavens, and provide miracles even in a wilderness.
I call you to joy and thanksgiving! Let every day be the day of magnificent praises! Lift up your eyes and see the blessings I have provided for you, and let the world know that you are Mine.
The redeemed must say so by their thanks and by their extravagant praise. Today, set your heart before Me, Your Father, and learn the sweet lessons of gratitude. I will free you when you give Me thanks!
