We need to celebrate the program that the Lord has for us. At the end of the day, we shall have fullness of joy because he has promised and he is faithful who has promised. Appreciate God.
PRAYERS OF THANKSGIVING
- Thank God for his hand with us and for his word that has gone forth. Thank him for backing his word with the fullness of his power and glory and reputation to fulfil it.
- Give him honour, give him thanks, give him adoration. Give him praise. Lord, we worship and adore you. We bless you, we praise you, only you are worthy to receive our thanksgiving in Jesus’ name.
“Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust. O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee; But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight. Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips. The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night season. I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore”.Psalm 16 KJV
- The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places.
- I have a goodly heritage, (some translations say, “I have a wonderful inheritance”).
Because the Lord is at your right hand, you will not be moved. You will smile at every storm and your boat will not sink in the mighty name of Jesus.
Don’t take the hope we have for granted. A life without hope is rudderless. It is sterile. Many people are living this way and it is one of the things the devil is using to attack the world today – hopeless situations. Even when things are not hopeless by themselves the devil paints a very gloomy picture in the mind of people and they arrive at the conclusion that there is no hope. Thereafter, he starts telling them to end it – what are you living for? There is no hope. The ease with which people do it baffles me. I want to let you know that that is a very big lie from the pit of hell. Every child of God has hope.
