Thank You, Jesus

Read: 1 Kings 4:1 through 6:38; Luke 17:11–37

Hudson fell at school and broke his arm. The bone was displaced so they thought they might have to do surgery. He was really afraid. After checking the x-rays, the surgeon told Hudson, “If the bone had moved one more millimeter, I would have had to operate. So you get to go home today instead of to the hospital.”

After the appointment, Hudson said, “Mom, I asked God to make surgery unnecessary.”

“Did you thank Jesus?”

“I sure did,” Hudson replied.

In today’s reading, Luke tells us that ten lepers asked Jesus for mercy, and He healed them.

One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him (Luke 17:15–16).

However, the other nine lepers continued on. Oftentimes, after people’s prayers are answered, they go about their business and forget to give God the praise and thanksgiving He deserves.

Challenge for Today: Take note of the many ways God provides, and then thank Him specifically for how He’s taken care of you.

Quicklook: Luke 17:11–19

Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).

Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
