    Thanksgiving to God is the Highest Form of Faith
    by Sam Sweg

    Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
    (Philippines 4:6)

    When you thank God in advance for your needs, you are abiding and living in the highest form of Faith in God. Thanking Him in advance tells God that you totally trust Him to supply your needs. Colossians 4:2 states, "Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving." When you thank Him in advance in your prayers daily, you build a image in your heart of the answered prayer. In Mark 11:24 Jesus teaches, "Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them." The greater your thanksgiving grows daily the greater your faith will grow!

    Thanking God is also the highest form of praise. He created you to praise Him! When you continually thank Him you are praising Him. The greatest gift you can give to the Father God Almighty and the Lord Jesus Christ is to praise and thank Him for His love and goodness. Psalm 71:8 admonishes, "Let my mouth be filled with your praise and with your glory all the day." Thanking Him casts your cares upon Him, so He can take care of you.

    Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
    (1 Peter 5:7, Amplified Bible)

    Living a life filled with praying in the Spirit and thanksgiving will dramatically change your life and all those around you in a amazing supernatural miraculous way!

    That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving, And tell of all Your wondrous works.
    (Psalm 26:7)

    I will praise the name of God with a song, And will magnify Him with thanksgiving.
    (Psalm 69:30)

    Indeed it came to pass, when the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD, and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the LORD, saying: "For He is good, For His mercy endures forever," that the house, the house of the LORD, was filled with a cloud, so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the LORD filled the house of God.
    (2 Chronicles 5:13-14)

    This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity (futility) of their mind, having the understanding darkened...
    (Ephesians 4:17-18)

    Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly...
    (Psalm 1)

    Was it Norvel that used to say 'Thanksgiving is the voice of faith'? Anyway, that is the very basis of faith, to be able to thank God for what He says you have before you can see it. Many Christians still have a problem with that and I just can't understand it.

    Another side to that is thanksgiving, or speaking the Word in spite of circumstances (Truth is greater than fact), is a form of meditation. We are repeating God's Word and we are ministering to our own soul through that confession and declaration. We are keeping the Word in our mouth (don't let this book of the law depart out of your mouth, Josh 1:8), which is exactly what Joshua describes as the act of mediation. Speaking the Word IS how we meditate the Word. That is what Joshua is saying. As a matter of fact in one Bible I had in Psalm 1 where the word 'meditate' is used, the margin for that word read, "ponder by speaking to one's self".

    By giving thanks and ministering to our own soul with the Word we are transforming our hope from world/circumstance-based, to WORD based which is the only kind of hope that faith will give substance to.
