GRATITUDE LEADS TO GREATER BLESSING

 

Luke 17:12-19 TPT

As he entered one village, ten men approached him, but they kept their distance, for they were lepers. (13) They shouted to him, "Mighty Lord, our wonderful Master! Won't you have mercy on us and heal us ?" (14) When Jesus stopped to look at them, he spoke these words: "Go to be examined by the Jewish priests." They set off, and they were healed while walking along the way.(15) One of them, a foreigner from Samaria , when he discovered that he was completely healed, turned back to find Jesus, shouting out joyous praises and glorifying God. (16) When he found Jesus, he fell down at his feet and thanked him over and over, saying to him, "You are the Messiah." This man was a Samaritan. (17) "So where are the other nine?" Jesus asked. "Weren't there ten who were healed? (18) They all refused to return to give thanks and give glory to God except you, a foreigner from Samaria?" (19) Then Jesus said to the healed man lying at his feet, "Arise and go. It was your faith that brought you salvation and healing."'

 

BELIEF: EVERY GOOD GIFT IS FROM GOD

 

James 1:17 NIV

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

 

CHOICE: I WILL NOT LET WHAT I WANT ROB ME FROM WHAT I HAVE

 

Ecclesiastes 6:9 NLT

Enjoy what you have rather than desiring what you don't have. Just dreaming about nice things is meaningless—like chasing the wind.

 

Philippians 4:12-13 NLT

I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. (13) For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.

 

CHOICE: I'LL TURN EVERY BLESSING INTO PRAISE

 

Psalms 103:1-5 NLT

Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. (2) Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. (3) He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.

 

Psalms 103:1-5 NLT

(4) He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. (5) He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle's!'
