Why & How?

Ps. 9:14 “I will praise you and rejoice because you saved me!” (NCV, emphasis added).

My life and your life should give God thanks because of who He is, because of what He has done, and because of what He has PROMISED. For believers, the biggest promise we should thank God for is the gift of eternal life. Read the rest of this entry

Give Thanks

Ps. 148:5 “Let all things praise the name of the Lord, because we were created at his command.” (CEV, emphasis added).

God is good, that is why it is a delight to walk with Him. Even when you do not understand what He is doing, you know that all things work together for the good of those that love God and are called according to His purpose. Even though I do not understand it, Read the rest of this entry

Who He Is, II

Ps. 145:3 The Lord is GREAT. He is worthy of our praise. No one can understand how great he is.” (ICB, emphasis added).

The first reason why my life and your life should give God thanks is Because Of Who God Is. God is GREAT, God is HOLY, God is LOVE, and God is JUST. Does that mean God is fair or is God unfair? Some people think that God is unfair even though they are afraid to say it for fear of being Read the rest of this entry

Who He Is, I

Ps.50:23 “… giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honours me.” (emphasis added)

When you are grateful, you cannot really be anxious. When you actually worship, you cannot be worrying, they cannot coexist. You have to choose one, is it going to be worry or is it going to be worship? Is it going to be anxiety or is it going to be gratitude? Read the rest of this entry

Gladly Overlook

Isaiah 43:16 &18 “I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters, making a dry path through the sea… “But forget all that—it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.”

What lies ahead of you will make what you think you have today like nothing, like absolutely nothing. Therefore, you and I need to bury complacency. During the question-and-answer session of the Financial Dominance Course on the GFH Academy, one of the questions raised was, what is the Read the rest of this entry

The Nine, V

Luke 17:15-16 “One of them, when he realized that he was healed, turned around and came back, shouting his gratitude, glorifying God. He kneeled at Jesus’ feet, so grateful. He couldn’t thank him enough—and he was a Samaritan.” (MSG)

Today, we will pick up from our final thought from yesterday which is, what God did for you, He did for you personally, and not do for someone else. Jesus died on the cross of calvary for you, for me. It is just like having four children and three of them are responsive to you, they care about you, and they Read the rest of this entry

The Nine, IV

Ps.34:1&3 “Lord! I’m bursting with joy over what you’ve done for me! My lips are full of perpetual praise. Join me, everyone! Let’s praise the Lord together. Let’s make him famous! Let’s make his name glorious to all.” (TPT)

Luke 17:17Jesus asked, “Didn’t I heal ten men? Where are the other nine?” We have been searching for the nine and so far, we have found six. The first one listened to the voice of doubt. The second one said his healing was a coincidence. Read the rest of this entry

The Nine, III

Ps.103:2-5 “Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!”

In our search, so far, we have found four out of nine. The one who listened to the voice of doubt. The one who said his miracle was a coincidence. The one who said it was too little too late and the one who said Jesus was just doing His job. Appreciation is big. Read the rest of this entry

The Nine, II

Luke 17:17-18 “Jesus: Didn’t all ten receive the same healing this fellow did? Where are the other nine? Was the only one who came back to give God praise an outsider?” (Voice)

Yesterday, we found two out of nine; the one who listened to the voice of doubt and the one who said his miracle of healing was a coincidence. Third, the one who said, ‘too little, too late’. Unbelievable excuse and it was what actually held him back. Read the rest of this entry

The Nine, I

Luke 17:17-18 “Jesus asked, “Didn’t I heal ten men? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” (emphasis added)

The question is where are the nine? Jesus was surprised that only one came back. And reading it almost will break your heart that people will be so ungrateful to God. Where are the nine? If Jesus is looking for something and you are His boy, you have to help Him find it. Read the rest of this entry
