Be Thankful to God.
Delight yourself in the Lord and be thankful.

All of us have dreams and wishes in our heart. In order to make them come true, Lord says in the Psalm 37:4 “Delight thyself also in the Lord: and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” Delight yourself in the Lord means love God; feel well and thankful to Him. Many people don`t have their wishes fulfilled because they are not able to delight themselves in God. When you disagree with something from the Bible, forgive me, but you don`t like God. “Delight yourself in God” means agree with everything He does. It`s not simply agree because it`s in the Bible, but due to your love for Him.
Some preachers require quantity to do the work of God while Jesus went to hamlets and to few people. Never make your pride be your guide in relation to small churches. Jesus saved many souls and healed many people in small room.
In some of Jesus ‘wanderings, He met ten lepers who claimed for their healing. Likewise we see in the Worldwide Church of God`s Power, people seeking their healing, miracles and blessings through the hand imposition. Those lepers wanted to be free from leprosy. Jesus sent them to priests to be healed. From them, it came one of those evils that still affect many people, the ungratefulness. Just one of those ten lepers came back praising Lord out loud. Just one in every ten blessed people come back to praise the Lord and be with Him. It`s in the Bible. Jesus let it be registered somehow to make us aware of that. The second detail of this passage that I want to drive your attention to and unfortunately makes God extremely sad is that, there are people who receive their healing or miracle and complain about another thing. Church, in order to have the wishes of your heart fulfilled, you have to keep yourself thanking God and live close to Jesus. You won`t conquer anything you want through your life at once. Thank God and He will do many more wonderful things in your life. Don`t be ungrateful to God. Be like that leper who came back thankfully. Be aware that God does the work in our lives thoroughly the way it was said by Apostle Paul. The work is not complete until the day that Jesus Christ comes back for us. Whether it is when we die or when Jesus comes back for us. God hasn`t done everything in our lives yet. He has been doing. It also applies to you and me. Never want to climb up all the stairs at once. Praise Him. Be at His feet. Thank Him for your miracle. Everyday thank God for what you have in your life even if it`s a little or a lot. God will bless you because He looks for grateful people. The simple fact of being alive, it`s already a purpose for us to thank God. The owner of silver and gold may give you all, but it depends on your gratitude. Seek God from deep of your heart and He will provide you with everything else. Keep calm because God knows everything you need. Everything will come at the right moment and time.
