TEACHING FROM HERB AND JAN SCHNEIDER:
We give God thanks for His wonderful BLESSINGS of provision and health to us, and our partners, during a time that we have witnessed the results of the curse at work in our nation, and around the world. Saying “Thank you” creates an encompassing atmosphere of the goodness of God that we can live in everywhere we go, making us a light in a dark world.
In 1863, in the middle of the civil war, Abraham Lincoln made a Thanksgiving Proclamation stating, “The year that is drawing towards its close has been filled with the Blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which we so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come from…..the ever watchful providence of Almighty God.” God’s goodness has surrounded the United States of America because of our forefathers who sought after God, and we must not let the enemy steal that great foundation of our Constitutional rights as Americans. This has been a year of a shaking and an awakening to just how far off our country has wandered from God.
Deuteronomy 28:46-48 is talking about the curse…”They shall be upon you for a sign and for a wonder, and upon your seed forever….because you served not the Lord your God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things.” Now we are the redeemed of the Lord, for Galatians 3:13 says, “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us….”, and if we believe and declare that, then verse 48 will not come upon us. WE WILL NOT BECOME A SOCIALIST NATION, as we give thanks to God for always causing us to triumph in Christ Jesus, to live in the land of the free, and the home of the brave – 2 Corinthians 2:14.
Philippians 4:6 says, “Be careful for nothing (don’t worry about anything); but in everything by prayer and supplication, WITH THANKSGIVING, let your requests be known unto God.” Asking with thanksgiving is an act of faith. Jesse Duplantis says, God didn’t tell you to ask with thanksgiving without the intention of giving you everything you ask for.
You may even have a good reason to be concerned, but God still says, ‘be careful for nothing’, for it gives Him access to handle the situation. When life tries to show us the opposite, faith rises up to say, “No, I refuse to be concerned about that, I have brought it to God, and He is working it out on my behalf?” Saying thank you ahead of time to God when you request what He has already made available to you, is part of the process of receiving. If you believe you receive when you pray, then saying thank you to God is faith speaking – Mark 11:24.
No matter what the world news is declaring (we’re not listening), righteousness shall prevail, truth shall outweigh the lies, good shall outweigh the evil, and GOD IS HEALING OUR LAND. We share these words spoken by a pastor of faith, “We’re going to see a great fall of all the plans of the enemy over our nation. There’s going to be a rejoicing over this land, as we continue to hold a position of faith. We’re going to see God strip the electoral map numbers, just like He stripped the chariot wheels of the Egyptians, and it’s going to shift the momentum and come in the favor of those true believers who love God, who love the United States of America, and who love Donald Trump for his stand for God, and his stand for this nation, and his stand for the Christians.” WE ARE ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL! OUR NATION WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE THE FREEDOM TO PREACH THE GOSPEL – ALL OVER THE WORLD! We cannot be shaken during this shaking – for it is a part of the removal of all things that are not of God.
As believers we’re coming into the best shape of our lives. Our future God has planned is very bright. We’re going higher than ever before. FEAR NOT…..ONLY BELIEVE for if God be for you, who can be against you. Remember, when you only say what God says, God will do what you say!!!
