Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Exodus 18:9-10, “And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which the Lord had done to Israel, whom he had delivered out of the hand of the Egyptians. And Jethro said, Blessed be the Lord, who has delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians and out of the hand of Pharaoh”. Jethro was the father-in-law of Moses. He was a shepherd and a priest of the Medians. The bible says that he rejoiced for all the good that the Lord had done for Israel.
Jethro had a thankful heart. He remembered all that the Lord had done for the people of Israel. Similarly, you need to rejoice in the Lord and keep praising Him for all His goodness in your life. There is no one in this world who does not have any problem. Everyone is fighting their own battles. Amidst all these, you need to have a thankful heart for all that the Lord has done in your life. When you thank the Lord remembering all His goodness, He will be pleased with you and will bless you more. All through these months, you might have faced various problems and might have got lost in the troubles of this world. God does not want you to suffer but to rejoice even in your afflictions because the bible says that His grace is sufficient for you.
When God prepared a new place for the Israelites and took them to the land that He promised, the people rejoiced and thanked the Lord for His goodness in their lives. Similarly, when the Lord blesses you with many blessings like a new house, a new job, a new property and much more, you need to rejoice and be thankful for all what He blesses you with. Hold on to God for a miracle today. Keep thanking God for all His goodness.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. I pray that You may set Your children free from all their bondage and problems. I pray that they may rejoice in Your goodness all the days of their lives. May they be thankful to You for all that You have done for them. In Jesus name we pray,
