Gratitude attracts the grace of God
In Luke 17:11-19, we read the story of the ten lepers. Among the many lessons we glean here are:
1. Jesus sees you right now.
Luke 17:14a (NKJV) – So when He saw them…
No matter what you are going through, Jesus sees and is aware of your challenge right now. Take comfort in the knowledge that the Master sees and cares about what you are experiencing. You are not alone. He is a God who sees and provides; ask Hagar in Genesis 16:13.
2. All we need is one word from God.
When God speaks all norms are de-normalized. Laws of science and man are suspended. There is nothing you need that God cannot make available. This is in keeping with His plan and purpose for your life. Answer the following questions:
- What is God saying to me about my life today?
- What has God’s word said to me about my life?
- What person with spiritual maturity can I discuss this with this week?
After you have this conversation, determine what steps you need to take to move forward in what you now know. Be sure that your first step is to thank God for once again guiding you. Remember that gratitude attracts the grace of God.
