Don't forget to be thankful

Daily Thought

Your Word for 12 July 2024

Genesis 17:1
When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to him and said, ‘I am God Almighty; walk before Me faithfully and be blameless.’

After giving her precious son over to God, Hannah starts rejoicing.

1 Samuel 2:1 Then Hannah prayed: ‘My heart rejoices in the LORD! The LORD has made me strong. Now I have an answer for my enemies; I rejoice because you rescued me.’

It is so important to remember to be thankful and to live a life of praise. It is part of having that different attitude.  Let praise and thankfulness dominate your heart and mind.  It is an indication of our dependence on God.  Don’t let negativity overwhelm you, but remember to praise God in your situation.   Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice.  It is interesting to note that God had stopped her from having children.

1 Samuel 1:6 ‘the LORD had closed her womb!’

One may ask why He did this? I certainly would! Perhaps He knew that she had it in her to be the example we all need!
