|November 10, 2012--It's fall at my house.|
One of my children told me about a health issue that had been resolved. It had been a significant problem for many months, but now it was completely resolved. I recalled saying to him some time ago that we needed to pray about it.
"That's an answer to our prayers you know," I said. "It certainly is," he replied. "Praise God." We smiled at one another.
I was happy that God had answered our prayers, and that my son had told me about it, and I was also pleased that he had acknowledged God's hand at work. While I sat there, considering God's mercy, I was struck by the thought, how many times must we fail to acknowledge that God has answered our prayers? We experience the answered prayer, enjoy the benefits of His mercy and grace, but fail to stop and thank Him, and tell others about what's He's done for us.
I want to share the Scripture about Jesus healing the ten lepers.
May God bless you today. I pray that you will realize in your body and your soul all the good things that God has done for you, that you will rejoice and praise Him and in so doing feel a real lift in your spirit. The God of the universe has done great things for you.
