GIVE THANKS (Luke 17:12-18)
And as he entered into a certain village, there meet him ten men that were lepers which stood afar off and they lifted up their voices and said, Jesus master have mercy on us; and when he saw them he said unto them go shew yourselves unto the priest; and it came to pass that as they went they were cleansed. One of them when he saw that he was healed, turned back and with a loud voice glorified God and fell down on his face at his feet giving him thanks. He was a Samaritan, and Jesus answering said where there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God save this stranger. (Luke 17:12-18).
Beware that thou forget not the lord thy God in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments and his status which I command this day. Lest when thou hast eaten and are full and hast built goodly houses and dwelt therein; and when thy herds and thy flocks multiply and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied; and all that thou hast is multiplied then all that thou hast is multiplied; then thine heart be lifted up and thou forget the lord thy God which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt from the house of bondage who led thee through the great and terrible wilderness wherein were fiery serpents; and scorpions and drought where there was no water who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint; who feed thee in wilderness with manna which thy fathers knew not that he might humble thee; and that he might prove thee to do thee good at thy latter end and thou say in thine heart my power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth; but thou shall remember the lord thy God for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth that he may establish his covenant which he swear unto thy fathers as it is this day.
Week 1: Concerning Your Family
God setteth the solitary in families, He bringeth out those which are bound with chains but the rebellions dwell in a dry land. Psalms 68:6.
- Praise and give God thank you for my life.
- The prince of peace thank l you for the lives of my children from January to September
- Oh great God of Israel, thank you for not giving us over to the wills of our enemies.
- The beginning and the ending of our sojourn here, thank you for all gains and losses, thank you for all the victories and failures, thank you for all the successes and disappointments thy name alone be glorified. For in thee, there is no lose.
