My New year's message to you for 2010............

A few years back I learned a vital lesson which has benefited me since and if you can learn it ,you will also have learned a vital principle that will help to establish you and strengthen you in the years to come. We had just finished a year of revival and I was preparing to encourage those that had been saved and revived. It was New year day 1996 and most of those in attendance were from a very poor area. I was thinking about my sermon and as it was customary to allow time for testimonies, I sat there as they started to come forward one at a time, not thinking too much of what they would say. I was the teacher and they were going to receive from me as soon as I was called to the podium. The year had been particularly difficult year for me and my family, even the team with me where having it hard as the Eastern Cape is renowned as a poor area with not much work for the locals.

As I sat there I started to receive a vital lesson on thanksgiving......one by one they started to thank God for the year that had passed and how he had kept them, it was amazing and refreshing to see those who should be complaining and disillusioned with their circumstances giving the most wonderful sacrifice of praise and we could not stop them ,they just went on and on......some would do it in song others in words and they would then all give Glory for the well being of the one testifying and a spontaneous song or applauding of praise was given to God.
I was the student that day as I saw them and how the practical of what is written in the Word of God was done  
with joy.....                                                                                                                                                       


NOW.....

Looking deeper at this principle you will start to realise that this is the very basics of faith and of believing God...as we give thanks we establish ourselves and others hearing and we affirm our stand and our relationship to God the Father who is the source of all good things by faith.
If we do not give thanks the very opposite is true and we move into unbelief and fear, becoming fault finders and we will fall from faith as we are robbed of our joy and testimony......even when it is difficult, give thanks and soon your attitude will change and circumstances will change around you.....you will make a way for God to change it and even you will gain strength to step out in faith and change things around you.........
God bless you as you thank Him who has given us so much.........


AT THE END OF THIS REVIEW I WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO APPLY THIS PRINCIPLE IN YOUR OWN LIFE AND CIRCUMSTANCES........

 
Evangelist Ricky van der Walt.
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
God moved mightily as evangelist Ricky spent two months in Wisconsin area, from church to church, house to house, hospital to hospital, to open air outreaches in the busy city centre God faithfully touched and healed miraculously "we had a revival throughout the whole area and many almost unreachable people were touched and reached.......so many miracles where done and the name of Jesus was lifted high. I did not realise the need and had to have a mind shift as I realised how many needed ministry.........I stayed until I had to leave for scheduled  outreaches in Africa." Many new testimonies have flowed from the USA and evangelist Ricky will be returning early this year to preach and reach those who he could not during 2009.
Thank you Lord Jesus for everyone whom you allowed me to minister to......
