THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Friday December 1st, 2017.
TEXT: Psalm 8, Psalm 103
THEME: HIS BENEFITS HAVE BEEN COUNTLESS
MEMORISE: Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits. (Psalm 103:3)
It must surely be a wonderful feeling knowing that God has enabled you to see the end of another month (November) and then ushered you into another one – the last for the year. The uniqueness of the current month is that it is the last.
From the beginning of the year, you might have experienced battles of life, but God has sustained you. Who knows those things you could not achieve during the past eleven months? Of a truth, they do not matter. The only thing that matters for now is that God has ordained it that you will live to see this day.
So, you must be grateful to Him and give Him praise for all the benefits He has bestowed upon your life during the turn of the year. He preserved your life and never allowed you to pass from sleep to death. He saved you from all the attacks of the enemy and returned all arrows back to their senders. He provided for you and your family and never allowed the enemy to rejoice over your life.
There are many people who do not seem to be satisfied with just being alive ‘only.’ They must remember that a living dog is better than a dead lion.
Those things you believe God for, but which have not yet manifested in your life, are part of the reasons why you are still alive. Do not faint; do not murmur. The Lord will perfect them at His own time. For now, just be happy that you are among the privileged people to see the first day in the last month of the most chaotic year in the history of mankind.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. O God my Father, I bless your name for preserving me and my family from the beginning of this year till the last month, in Jesus’ name.
2. Thank you for everything you have used The Lord’s Chosen ministry to accomplish in the lives of the workers, leaders, pastors and the entire Chosen congregation, in Jesus’ name.
3. Thank you for preserving the life of our G. O, Mummy in the Lord, their children and entire family, in Jesus’ name.
