“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”
Thankfulness – Course 101 in the Advanced School of Knowledge
My people are destroyed (perish) from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children. Hosea 4:6
What kind of knowledge are you receiving? The issue is not necessarily knowing the facts about God; the issue is having firsthand experience with God. We gain knowledge by reading and going to school. We get experience by putting the knowledge into practice. Many people believe God exists, however few experience the victory which is in Christ Jesus. The wise man is the person who hears the word of God and puts it into practice by building his house on the rock. The rock is putting the word of God into practice.
Victory is learning to put into practice what you have seen and heard about the Kingdom of God through Christ Jesus. Jesus left us a model prayer which says to forgive others as HE has forgiven you. How much has HE forgiven you? How much knowledge have you experienced through forgiving others? Have you just attended Class 101 on forgiveness and never learned to put forgiveness into practice? The graduate school of forgiveness leads to an advanced degree in the School of Gratitude.
Gratitude is the attitude that sets the altitude for living. When you have a thankful heart, when the love of God is alive in you, what comes out is an attitude of gratefulness and thankfulness.
Are you a thankful person?
Are you choosing thankfulness over complaining? Thankfulness is what you put on to replace complaining. Put on the mind of Christ which is in Christ Jesus. The joy of the Lord is your strength.
You can rejoice in the Lord always because HIS SPIRIT is in you. He is in your temple – your body. His Spirit is what gives you power to wake up each day and face the day with a smile. His Spirit in you allows you to wear the breastplate of righteousness. His Spirit in you allows you to love the unloving. His Spirit in you gives you strength when your strength is gone. His Spirit allows you to walk as a forgiven child of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. His Spirit in you allows you to walk without regret, without fear, without shame, without anger and without complaining. You have graduated out of and from the knowledge of this temporal world. You have received the Knowledge of HIS Spirit working in you which is power, love and wisdom. You are now experiencing a transformed life and the mysteries of God which last for all eternity. As a graduate from the School of Thankfulness, the love and joy of Christ in you will explode through every part of your life. You will have problems and suffer much, however you will walk through the problems and circumstances with a peace which transcends all understanding. You have graduated. Put on the graduation Royal Robe of your Father the King.
