THANK YOU!!


thank-you

REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD YOUR MOM AND DAD TAUGHT YOU TO SAY, “PLEASE & THANK YOU?”

We all know that when you give a gift it is not that you want to be publicized, but you do want to hear “THANK YOU”.

TODAY WE NEED TO SAY THANK YOU TO JESUS FOR ALL THE BLESSINGS HE HAS GIVEN TO US.

The 10 lepers came to Jesus for healing, and they got what they came for!  They were healed of a terrible disease that literally eats your flesh off your body.  Jesus healed all 10 of them, it was a MIRACLE!!!

YET…..

Only 1 returned to say, “THANK YOU”.

When one of them saw that he was healed, he came back. He praised God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked Him. – Luke 17:15

THE OTHER 9 WERE HEALED TOO….BUT…THEY NEVER SAID, “THANK YOU”.

When we look at all the blessings Jesus has released in our lives we sometimes become like spoiled children who forget to be appreciative.  The thank you did not activate the miracle, so it isn’t works, but being grateful to the One who changed our lives should be normal.

I STILL HAVE LOTS OF PROBLEMS IN MY LIFE PASTOR SPENCER!

If you choose to live a life of gratefulness, appreciation, and praise heaven will recognize you.  How do you know that heaven will recognize me?  WHAT THIS ONE MAN DID WAS ENTERED INTO THE WORD OF GOD BY THE INSPIRATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.  The Holy Spirit mentioned it because it is a reflection of what pleases the Father.

TAKE ALL DAY AND SIMPLY THANK HIM FOR ALL HE HAS DONE!!!

IT WILL TAKE ALLLLLLLLLLL DAY TO NAME THEM ALLLLLLLLLL! 

thank-you

I AM SO BLESSED!


grateful

THIS MORNING IN MY TIME WITH JESUS I JUST KEPT FEELING SO BLESSED AND OVERWHELMINGLY GRATEFUL!

“Pastor if you had to live my life you would not be feeling that at all.”

ONE THING I HAVE LEARNED THROUGHOUT THE YEARS IS THAT YOU AND I ARE SO BLESSED NO MATTER WHAT HELL IS LICKING OUR TOES.

You might have a spirit of heaviness on you today because of your trials, but I challenge you to see how blessed you are and then to give praise for ALL your blessings.

Is. 61:3, To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the LORD has planted for his own glory.

Heb 13:15, Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.

WHEN YOU AND I LOOK AT OUR LIVES WITH JESUS IN IT THERE IS NO WAY NOT TO GET OVERWHELMED WITH A GRATEFUL HEART.

When we stare at our problems it is easy to become overtaken with fear and frustration.

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS TODAY AND GIVE HIM PRAISE FOR WHAT YOU DO HAVE INSTEAD OF COMPLAINING OF WHAT YOU DO NOT HAVE.

You have salvation!

You have the Holy Spirit living within!

You have a loving Father!

You have eternity with the King!

You have joy!

You have peace!

YOU HAVE JESUS!!!

1 Thess. 5:18, Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Ps. 106:1, Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!

Col. 3:15, And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.

Ps. 34:1-3,  I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises. I will boast only in the Lord; let all who are helpless take heart. Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness; let us exalt his name together.

Why are you so NEGATIVE?


Ps. 95:2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
Ps. 100

THE COMPLAINING & NEGATIVE

Newspapers and just human nature, we usually steer towards the negative of the situation rather than being a person of thanksgiving and praise.

The children of Israel did this well

Complaining when they came to the Red Sea: They were being led by a pillar of fire at night, and a cloud by day,
hummmm, think God was with them?

Red Sea – Ex. 14:11, Then they said to Moses, “Because there were no
graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why
have you so dealt with us, to bring us up out of Egypt? God delivers them on dry ground and the Sea comes back and drowns the entire Egyptian Army.

Bitter water – made sweet at Marah & Bread from heaven
Ex. 16:3, And the children of Israel said to them, “Oh, that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the pots of meat and when we ate bread to the full! For you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger.”

Thirst – water comes from the rock

If we took just our morning today, would our conversation be more complaining or thankfulness?

WE ARE A VERY BLESSED PEOPLE

Even though our unemployment is high, compared to the rest of the world we are so blessed!

Bangladesh – 13 cents and hour
China – .44 cents 
Costa Rica – 2.38
Dominican – 1.62
El Salvador – 1.38
Haiti – .62 cents
Honduras – 1.31
Indonesia – .34 cents
Nicaragua – .76 cents
Vietnam – .26 cents

Some would say, “You have no idea how bad it is”

“Be thankful for what you have and you can be trusted to appreciate more”
1. You have JESUS AND ETERNITY
2. You have the WORD OF GOD
3. You have BREATH
4. You have FREEDOM
5. You have LOVE
6. You have A LOVING CHURCH
7. You have FAMILY
8. You have A PLACE TO LAY YOUR HEAD
9. You have CLOTHES ON YOUR BACK
10. The list is massive

Take a moment and write down 10 things you are thankful for in your life.

Write 10 things you will prophetically thank our Daddy for (calling those things which are not as though they already are).
