Psalm 107 begins with the words, “Give thanks to the Lord for He is good; His love endures forever!”
This psalm then goes on to recount the many ways that God has displayed His goodness to His children throughout the ages. After each reminder of His acts of deliverance and goodness there is a declaration of “Give thanks to the Lord…”
As I was reading this psalm this morning I had a picture in my mind of the Lord riding swiftly upon the praises of His people. In this picture there was a sickle in His hand and with this sickle He was removing the thorns and thistles that had entrapped many of His sons and daughters from moving forward.
This still picture then began to have movement and turned into a vision of men and women who were trapped and in great distress but their cries for help turned into shouts that declared His goodness. As they releases these declarations of His goodness, a great acceleration took place and as He rode upon the praises of thanksgiving this sickle quickly and suddenly freed them from this captivity.
Then as they were freed from their captivity the sacrifice of thanksgiving permeated their entire being and they began to ride with the Lord and together they went forth with this sickle to free men, cities, nations and the captives who would join God’s great end time army.
“Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind. Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell of his works with songs of joy.”
I sensed that there is a “sacrifice of thanksgiving” that the Spirit is prompting many to release in this hour. It may be a shout, a declaration or an act of sacrificial thanksgiving that declares His goodness to you and to mankind. This will be the key to your breakthrough! Don’t release it merely for the sake of breakthrough but because it is truth and He is worthy!
