"My Testimony Is Changing to Be More Thankful"

"In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." 1 Thessalonians 5:18
It is so important for every one of us to be in the will of God in this hour. This verse tells us how to get there! "In everything give thanks"!
Could being thankful possibly cancel your personal "recession," or a possible coming "depression" that man is telling you about? I believe we need to celebrate "Thanksgiving" every day, starting now!
Has Your Mouth Spoken the Word "Recession" or "a Possible Coming Depression"?
"A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth...He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction (eat violence)." Proverbs 13:2-3 (the Book of Wisdom)
How many times have we said, "I'm broke, I'm sick, I'm catching a cold," and watched it come to pass? Little do we realize that when we open our mouth we are prophesying!
Why not say, "I have all the money I will ever need! I am catching another healing! Colds can't catch up with me, for goodness and mercy follow me all the days of my life! My two angels, 'goodness' and 'mercy' take care of me!"
If a Coin was Found in a Fish's Mouth, Maybe There is a Connection Between Our Mouth and Our Money!
"Notwithstanding, lest we should offend the government, go to the sea and cast a hook and take up the fish that first comes up. And when you open his mouth you will find a piece of money. Take the money, and give to them for Me and you." Matthew 17:27 (paraphrased)
I heard a saying once that even a fish would stay out of trouble if it learned to keep its mouth shut!
In the Spirit, I saw words coming out of the mouths of God's people that appeared to be forming chain-like links hooking together. These were negative words, and with each comment the chain grew thicker, wrapping itself around the object we were complaining about.
One of the largest chains I saw was wrapping around finances. Each time someone would say, "I don't have enough money," this chain became reinforced with strength, wrapping tighter around that person's wallet or purse and bank account.
Breathing Qualifies Us to Worship
"Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD." Psalm 150:6
I then saw in the Spirit one person stand up in a church that was about to close its doors. This person began lifting up his wallet toward Heaven and began thanking God that he even had a wallet. Though nothing was inside his wallet, he began praising God that he had the breath to praise Him in spite of his lack of finances.
As this man began lifting up his wallet with thanksgiving and praise, the chain snapped off of it and the Lord spoke audibly to this church: "Let everything that has breath praise Me. In everything give thanks." A revelation was breaking forth upon God's people that just breathing qualifies us to praise and worship Him! "Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD!"
"By Your Words You will be Justified..." Matthew 12:37
"In God We Trust!" became a sermon as someone pulled out his last dollar bill and began to prophesy what was written on our money. Our money was now preaching to us to not trust in it, but trust in our God! "Don't count your money...read it!"
As ministries, churches and their members rediscovered that God was their source, they were freed as the chains and locks began to melt in the presence of the Lord!
Some Offerings had to be Stopped..."We Have Enough Money...with Leftovers!"
A fresh oil of giving flowed upon God's people as they became thankful. I saw a key turning in the vault of the bank in Heaven, and finances from this bank began filling wallets, purses, ministries, and churches with whatever they needed. Money that was not minted by man was at times discovered! Some offerings given were going over the top and some pastors began declaring, "We have enough money, with leftovers!
Thanksgiving seemed to reverse and chase away the spirit of poverty, recession and every kind of depression known to man. Not only physical, but spiritual, emotional, mental and, yes, our needs were still being met according to His riches in glory!
