PRAISE FOR DELIVERANCE

NOVEMBER 15

Lord, You’ve been so good to look on the many afflictions of Your servant and to deliver me out of them all. Your hand is so kind and You always lead me in the way gently. I’m not deserving of Your goodness Lord. Thank You for everything You’ve done to save me out of every trial, tribulation, and persecution.

 

Reflect upon the ways God has delivered you. Not only in salvation, but in all things He has saved you in. 

Reflect upon the various trials of life and how God made them all come together for your good. Then as you reflect, worship Him because of His faithfulness. Worship Him because He is your salvation in EVERYTHING.

“I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” Ps 27:13

“But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra – what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. Yes and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.” 2 Tim 3:10-12

The Second Ten Commandments

  1. Thou shall not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.
  2. Thou shall not be fearful, for most of the things we fear never come to pass.
  3. Thou shall not cross bridges before you come to them, for no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this.
  4. Thou shall face each problem as it comes. You can only handle one at a time anyway.
  5. Thou shall not take problems to bed with you, for they make very poor bedfellows.
  6. Thou shall not borrow other people’s problem, They can better care for them than you can.
  7. Thou shall not try to relive yesterday for good or ill, it is forever gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life and be happy now!
  8. Thou shall be a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own. It is hard to learn something new when you are talking, and some people do know more than you do.
  9. Thou shall not become “bogged down” by frustration, for 90% of it is rooted in self-pity and will only interfere with positive action.
  10. Thou shall count thy blessings, never overlooking the small ones, for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one
