Possibilities of Thanksgiving – 04092011


Text: DANIEL 4:34-37

Introduction: Thanksgiving is an indispensable duty of every true child of God -1 Thes.5:17. It is difficult to make any meaningful progress in God’s kingdom without it – Phil.4:6

Dan.4:34-37 account – An examination of King Nebuchadnezzar’s experience shows how thanksgiving can possibly affect every facet of life.


As the king thanked & worshipped the God of heaven, his reasoning ability was restored.

1. Thanksgiving can positively affect your mental faculty and improve your reasoning. v34

2. Thanksgiving can affect the glory of a man/woman. The lost glory of the king returned with thanksgiving    .v36

3. It can attract honor & brightness to you. It can also cause those designed to favor you to suddenly    remember you for favor.

– The king was forgotten for 7years, but while thanking God as a strange beast, his lords suddenly    remembered him. v36

4. Thanksgiving facilitated the kings’ establishment & excellent majesty was added to him.

– If you can thank God sufficiently enough, He will restore you to your lost position and add something    greater.

5. It can make you complete. Luke 17:11-19. Ps.100:4 says, it is a door that ushers you into God’s presence.
