Hello People...., hope you enjoyed your weekend.
Sometimes during my morning prayer, the Holy Spirit is sooo awesome, He brings to my remembrance everything that God has done for me right from when I was small and I'll be like wow! Then I'd remember the Bible verse - count your blessings, name them one by one, and it would surprise you what the Lord has done.
You might not have everything you want, you might not have everything you ever asked God for, but really, if you would just sit to think, you'd know that nevertheless, God has still been soooo good.
There's something my prophet (Bishop David Oyedepo) always say: when you thank God for His finger, you'd see His hand, and when you thank Him for His hand, you'd see His outstretched arm, and when you thank Him for His outstretched arm, He'll comedown in His whole might!
Just like the one leper out of the ten that came back to say thank you to Jesus Christ for His healing, and then got a total restoration, thanksgiving perfects the blessings that God has given you, and inspires Him to give you more.
Don't know what to thank Him for? Thank Him because you're alive...many are dead, thank Him because you've legs...many are crippled, thank Him because you can see...many are blind, thank Him because you can speak and hear....many are deaf and dumb, thank Him because you can sleep......many use sleeping pills, thank Him because you can eat, swallow and digest....many are in the hospital using tubes. Most of all, thank Him because you know Him....you know Him because He chose you to know Him. These a just a few 'basic' extraordinary things that God does that many of us overlook.
Be thankful to God today, and you'll see your tank of blessings become full.
