God we give you thanks on this day and every day for everything you have done. God we remember. When there was not enough, you were more than enough. Your grace saved us. God we remember.
When our pockets were empty, there was more month than money. You met every need. There was no lack. Your grace was sufficient. God we remember.
When our burdens were heavy, you carried them for us. You delivered us. God we remember. We will never forget the wonderful marvelous things you’ve done for us. On this day, we say, Thank you for your faithfulness.
Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always (1 Chr 16:8-11).
From my family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!
Psalm 107:1 Give thanks to the Lord. For he is good; his love endures forever. (NIV)
What happens when the life you prospered and found great joy in changes suddenly and you’re not prepared for it? It happened suddenly and you were not ready to accept it? You were in denial and refused to move from your comfort zone because you were afraid of change.
Out of fear, you became resistant and decided it would be best to stagnate your progress instead of growing from it.
It was easy to be complacent and comfortable because you finally made some changes in your life and you became accomplished and known for your great works just for that season. You even managed to garner a title to identify with when others spoke or referred to you as great. But fame is only temporary. What you do for Christ will last. Don’t get it twisted.
Yet there will be some changes along the way. Can you handle it? God has a way of presenting change for a greater purpose; for a greater good. You see, with change comes new beginnings filled with new purpose. God is preparing you for something greater, on purpose.
As such, before he can elevate you, he has to prune, shape, and refine you. You may not like the change and may even be resistant to it. I say, don’t regret it. In fact, welcome it. Not because your situation may change but some things in you will change. Not just around you but you will be required to change some things about you.
When God opens a door you must be ready to walk through it for such a time as this. Be ready to walk through it. Even in difficult times or situations, trust God. You need to make the most of any situation. God promises something good will come from it. Be ready when it comes. God knows exactly what he’s doing!
Be blessed! – JD
Psalm 37:3-4 “Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness, 4 Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.” (ESV)
Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. The devil doesn’t want you to believe that at all. He wants you to fail. God won’t let you. God is faithful. He got you!
Don’t worry about the devil. He’ll lie to you. Trust in God. God’s Word is truth.
Be blessed! -JD
Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.(ESV)
