Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High: And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
Thanksgiving does something supernatural.
The Passion Translation Bible
Why don’t you bring me the sacrifices I desire? Bring Me your true & sincere thanks, and show your gratitude by keeping your promises to Me, the Most High. HONOUR Me by trusting in Me in your day of trouble. Cry aloud to Me and I will be there to rescue you. That is what I desire from you.
In the Hebrew language, the suggestion is that the word “thanksgiving”—the act of being grateful— opens the gate for miracles. It brings supernatural grace or favor into our lives. Jim Rohn, a man who has studied the lives of successful men and women across America, made an interesting discovery. He said the number one key to happiness, achievement, and success is first to be thankful. Amazing! We’ve all known gripers and complainers and criticizers. And it’s true. They’re not very happy people. They’re in the majority. But you can be in the minority and open the gate to miracles and favor in your life by being thankful. Success and happiness can be yours through thanksgiving.
