Text: 1 Samuel 7:7-13
When a child is grateful, he will receive more.
Thus far, God has helped us, if we show Him our gratitude, you can be sure He will see us through till the end.
Luke 17:12-16, 17-19. One of the lepers who Jesus healed, came back to say thank you. For this, Jesus moved him from healed to wholeness. This meant that the body parts that had been affected by leprosy would be restored to wholeness.
Mark 5:2-18. The mad man of Gadara after deliverance came back to say thank you. Jesus then promoted him.
Luke 5:1-9. God gave a breakthrough to Peter. He fell at the feet of Jesus to show his gratitude. Luke 5:10-11. As a result, Jesus upgraded him to fulfill his destiny.
1 Samuel 2:1-10, 22-21. Hannah showed her gratitude for Samuel and God blessed her with 5 more children.
2 Samuel 6:14-22. David danced before God for promoting him from shepherd to king. 2 Samuel 7:8-16. As a result of his gratitude, God promised to establish his kingdom forever.
Solomon showed his gratitude to God for lifting him even though his parents were adulterers, with 1000 offerings. As a result, God assured him of His blessing.
God told me there are 3 ways of doing things:
1. The right way
2. The wrong way
3. God’s way: God does as He pleases.
If you think you have no reason to thank God; The Almighty God in His own miraculous way has brought you thus far and saved your soul. Psalm 107:1-2, Hebrews 13:5-6.
He said He will never leave you nor forsake you so you can say the Lord is your helper. If you have God as your Helper, that’s enough reason to dance and praise Him. Psalm 34:8
Give your life to God and you’ll see the great benefit of becoming His. Ask Him to have mercy on you, to save your soul and wash you clean. Ask Him to write your name in the book of life.
Father, I’m raising my Ebenezer to You today. Thank You for saving my soul and for every blessing You’ve given me.
