The Mystery of Gratitude- A Sermon by Bishop Oyedepo (Winners Chapel Int’l)

Hey there! Jesus loves you

The Shiloh event (a yearly gathering of the Winners family worldwide) for 2010 kicks off on the 7th to 11th of December. Click here for more information.

Text– Psalm 92:1-3, 10-15

We live in a kingdom that runs on mysteries. Mark 4:11. Every issue in the kingdom is a mystery and every mystery you engage confers mastery on you in that area. And gratitude is a spiritual force that empowers you to scale higher. You can’t change to higher level without it.

What makes thanksgiving powerful

1. Thanksgiving paves the way for fresh impact

Every time you give genuine thanksgiving fresh oil for fresh impact comes on you. You never run dry with constant thanksgiving (Psa 89:20-24)

2. It is the key to your supernatural victories

Every child of God carries enviable future/destiny that attracts combat from the enemy. Gratitude passes your battle to God and you wouldn’t need to fight to win the battle.

(2 Chro 20:22-24)

3. Multiplication answers to gratitude

Every blessing (finance, healing, peace, grace, etc.) multiplies at the instance of thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is the mystery behind scaling unusual heights. (John 6:6-13)

4. Thanksgiving establishes you in the house of God.

It is the mystery behind your sustainability in the kingdom of God. The grateful are never offended. (Psa 92:13)

5. Sustainable fruitfulness

When you always give God thanks, your life will never lose value. (Psa 92:14)


Why must you give thanks

A. The breath in your nostrils has its root in God. (Psa 150:6)

B. Every good thing in your life has its source in God. (James 1:17)

C. A man can receive nothing except it be given him from above. (John 3:27)

D. Everything people marvel at in your life is the Lord’s doing. (Psa 118:23)

E. By strength shall no man prevail. (Rom 9:16)

Thanksgiving is a MUST for a glorious future. The Sermon: mystery of gratitude by Bishop Oyedepo continues on the next post. Stay tuned.
