DON’T GRUMBLE— PRAISE GOD!
Philippians 4:6-7 (6)
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. (NLT)
It is very tempting to murmur in one’s situation. For example, when shall I get my healing, dream job, and house? How can I get married, finance, or scholarship? What does tomorrow hold— can I ever make it? Various questions on the mind! Nevertheless, God is asking: ‘How did you get to where you are today? I assisted you before; I will surely help you again!’ (Isaiah 41:10-14; 55:8-13).
In Luke 17:11-19, we saw an excellent example of the ten lepers that were cleansed only for one to return, saying: ‘Thank you!’ Consequently, Jesus told him: ‘Go thy way, you have been made whole’. Meaning that ‘until we give thanks, our testimonies may not be perfected’. Therefore, for whatever it is you have today, bless the name of the Lord. Have faith and appreciate Him in advance for what you are expecting. Praise Jehovah, thereafter, for what you have received! (Psalms 34:1)
Beloved, as Apostle Paul admonishes in our text, whether it’s raining, dry, sunshine, or in the tunnel, don’t worry at all; instead, pray continuously with thanksgiving. All will be well, and your testimony shall become permanent, in Jesus’ name (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). Be Born Again!
Hymn: Praise To The Lord The Almighty — Joachim Neander (1680)
- Praise God wholeheartedly and thank Him for the past, present, and future.
- I shall continually glorify You, Lord. Please, perfect all that concerns me (mention).
- Lord, help me see the brighter side of my existence!
- I bind the spirit of suicide, anti-joy, loss of self-value, and depression in my life, neighbourhood, and the church.
THERE IS HOPE FOR YOU!
