• “God, I want to know more of You. I want to know more of Your ways. I want to know anything You want to show me through this. But if I have to live with mystery and unanswered questions the rest of my life, I will still trust You. I will still love You. I will still obey You.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Thankfulness and Praise by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/17

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We teach our children to be grateful.

“Okay, what do you say?”

(child with mouth full) “Thank you.”

Nancy: But do we have a grateful heart ourselves? It’s so easy to forget to say, “Thank you,” to God.

Jesus once cured ten lepers, telling them to go verify their healing with the priest.

Luke’s Gospel tells us that “one of them, when he saw he was healed, came back praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him.” Jesus wondered why the other nine didn’t say thank you. He said, “Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?”

I think we’re too often like one of those nine lepers. God has delivered us from the awful disease of sin, and praise should be our natural response. But so many times, we just forget.

How long has it been since you stopped to thank Jesus for all He has done for you?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “A Christian woman’s true freedom lies on the other side of a very small gate—humble obedience—but that gate leads out into a largeness of life undreamed of by the liberators of the world, to a place where the God-given differentiation between the sexes is not obfuscated but celebrated, where our inequalities are seen as essential to the image of God, for it is in male and female, in male as male and female as female, not as two identical and interchangeable halves, that the image is manifested.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Verse of the Day

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. — Matthew 5:11-12 (NKJV)
