Scripture Text:” Hebrews 2:18, NLT: “Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested.””
Count Your Blessings
When upon life’s billows
You are tempest tossed
When you are discouraged
Thinking all is lost
Count your many blessings
Name them one by one
And it will surprise you
What the lord has done
Eternal King of Glory we worship and adore your majesty, we honor You, we glorify Your Holy Name. Jehovah El Shaddai, the All Sufficient One, We adore You Jehovah Jireh, We honor You Jehovah Nissi. May Your Holy Name be exalted above all in Jesus Name!
Father we thank You for your faithfulness, for Your provision, Your protection, Your Mercy and Grace upon our lives.
Having a heart of gratitude even in the midst of challenges will make us appreciate who God is, remember what He has done in our past and it will strengthen our faith knowing that He will still do more in our lives. Ways that will help us to be grateful and count our blessings include the following.
• Remember (1Chronicle 16:12 – Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced). We should remember who God is, and how He has answered our prayers in the past, it is when we remember that we can appreciate all that He has done for us and keep on doing for us. I saw a quote somewhere that this year 2020 is not the year to get everything we want. It is a year to appreciate everything that we have. We should indeed appreciate all that we have received from the Lord.
• Rejoice, Reject Worry and Refocus, (Philippians 4:4-8), “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!…………. )
We are called to rejoice always, no matter the challenging circumstances within the context of what we are facing today and in this year so far, the word of the Lord teaches us to Rejoice. Not only are we to rejoice, but we should refocus on who God is and on any excellent and praiseworthy thing and not on things that bring anxiety into our mind. We should reject worry, because the word of God tells us to bring our burden to our LORD Jesus Christ because he cares for us.
• Move Forward (Philippians 3:13 “Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead)”
We should move forward and forget our past worries, remember the word of the Lord and hold on to it. We should always remember to think right. Right thinking ensures that we focus on what is ahead of us and not be looking at our past mistakes or how bad the year had been for us. This is the time to look ahead as 2020 is coming to an end, we should look towards 2021 with all the faith and optimism we have and trust God to make it a much better year in Jesus Name
• Hope and Trust God – (Philippians 4:19)
“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Get in agreement with God about your life. Continue to trust all that is in the Word of the Lord, remember He knew us before we were conceived in our mother’s womb, He knows us by name. He has us perpetually before Him in the palm of His hands. Dare to trust Him.
Let us Pray
i. Matthew 11:28-30 – Dear Jesus thank you for all you have done so far in our lives up till today. We are indeed grateful, accept our thanks in Jesus Name. We commit every burden in our lives into your hands and we receive your peace in exchange in Jesus Name.
ii. 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 – Lord bless us indeed and let us be a blessing to all those around us in Jesus Name.
