Thanksgiving Sharpens Your Focus

Morning Thought: Thanksgiving is one of the pillars of entering into God’s presence. Through thanksgiving we recognise what God has given. We realise that he laid down his life through Jesus Christ to make a way for us to be united with him. He has held nothing back. Thanksgiving sees God in both the small and the big. When you thank God you are delivered from a spirit of poverty. It dawns on you that you’re a recipient of the riches of God’s grace. Thanksgiving sharpens your focus so that you see God’s goodness, rather than the enemy’s destruction. “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations” (Psalm‬ ‭100:4-5‬, ‭NIV‬‬).

I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. In 1999 I migrated to Australia, married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted a church and Bible School. We are now the proud parents of four children ranging in age from five to eighteen. We are still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (www.brisbanefire.com). We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School (www.holyfireschool.com). I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
