“For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe.” -I Thessalonians 2:13 NKJV
If you have been at practically any church service at Rohi in the last three months, or just in this year, you may have seen or heard answered prayers. We are seeing the church grow; people getting saved and becoming disciples. We are seeing healings, miracles, signs and wonders. We are seeing financial provision and protection by the hand of God. We are seeing an increase in hunger and fire for God.
We see a revival happening here. We see breakthroughs for things long awaited for. We see dreams coming to life. We see businesses starting or expanding. We see so much more. We see God in all of this. We thank God for all this. And it’s all because there has been faith in the word of God, not the word of men. I cannot describe how it feels to see people put their faith and trust in God.
For this, we give thanks because it’s God who has just proven Himself over and over that He is faithful and true. We thank God for what He is doing throughout the lives of everyone in the church. We thank God for His word coming alive in our church. What He has said will come to pass because His Word is working in us that believe.
If you have believed God and taken Him at His word at any point in time and seen it come to pass, just take a moment and give God thanks. If you haven’t seen it yet, give God thanks anyway. You will see what God has said come to pass. So start or keep believing Him and keep on thanking Him.
