“Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us Thanksgiving to God. For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many Thanksgivings unto God” 2 Corinthians 9:11-12
Thanksgiving can be multiplied. Our scripture text powerfully reveals an aspect of aspect of thanksgiving least known or talked about, yet overwhelmingly potent. The Apostle Paul speaks of ‘many thanksgivings’ going to God at once! This happened because of the combined individual thanksgiving of several saints who had received a comforting supply of their pressing needs from other believers. Their individual thanksgiving combined formed a massive cloud of thanksgiving to God for the Corinthian church, from where their supply came. Can you picture what the response would have been from God?
We see a powerful principle here. This means the more the number of people thanking God on your behalf, the more the glory going to God because of you; leading to more glory manifestation in your life in return. In other words, the quantity of glory you supply to heaven determines the blessing heavens supply back to you. How much glory goes to God through you is dependant upon how many people are continually giving thanks to God on your behalf as a result of a deed you have done to them. You can do so by giving alms to the poor or anyone in need who the Holy Ghost lays on your heart to help.
Take note that this person or group of persons could be someone in need of a specific help that you can render conveniently. However, be sure not to do this out of compulsion or under duress, but by the leading of the Spirit and the revelation of God’s Word. You can structure a specific percentage of your resources to take care of this consistently. This way you would be multiplying your thanksgiving and in effect, God’s glory on your life
