Our Daily Manna August 13, 2017: ODM devotional – Appreciate What You Have
No matter what you are passing through right now, learn to count your blessings.
Topic: Appreciate What You Have [Sunday 13 August, 2017]
Consider the mediation below:
Today in a bus, I saw a lovely maid with a bunch of beautiful golden hair. I envied her and wished I were as fair. When suddenly she arose to aligh, I saw the braces as she wobbled. She was a victim of polio! Oh God forgive me, when I whine(murmur). I have two straight feet, yet I complained! When I alighted from the bus, I stopped to buy some sweets. The lad who sold them had such a great charm. I talked with him. He said to me, “It’s nice to talk with folks like you. You see, I am blind.” Oh God, forgive me when I whine (complain). I have two eyes. The world is mine! Then walking down the street, I saw a child with a blue eyes. He stood and watched others play. It seemed he knew not what to do. I stopped for a moment, then I said, “why don’t you join the others dear?” He looked ahead without aa word and then I knew he could not hear. Oh God, forgive me when I whine (complain)!
I have two ears! The world is mine. With feet to take me where I ‘d love to go. With eyes to see the sunset glow, with ears to hear what I would know. Oh God forgive me when I complain. I’m blessed indeed. The world is mine.”
No matter what you are passing through right now, learn to count your blessings. Even if you have no legs or cannot hear or even if you are blind or have no food; if your finances are low and you seem to be in the midst of an endless battle, still lift up your hands in gratitude for the gift of life. There is something for you to be thankful for! George Mueller said: “In one thousand trials, it is not five hundred of them that work for the believer’s good, but nine hundred and ninety-nine of them and one beside.” In this second half of 2017, look up today and appreciate God for what you have and for where you are! It could have been worse!
Prayer Points: Take any song of worship as led.
1. Appreciate what you have! Thank God for the priceless fact that you are alive. Thank God for each part of your body.
2. Repent from times that you complained. I decree today that the enemy will not convert my destiny to rags, in Jesus Christ name.
3. Pray for me Dr. Christ against a blackmailing syndicate that is determined to pull down this vision if I don’t give them money and a house. The battle is the Lord’s !
