Luke 2:8-14 (KJV) And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Thank you Father for sending Your Son to destroy the works of the enemy, and make the way of salvation for us all -- hallelujah! All Glory to You! May God bless you, your family, your friends, and all that concerns you.

Father, We thank You for Your blessings upon us -- not just the things we enjoy, but the things that mold us and shape us into the likeness of Christ. We thank You for Your Son, Jesus, the Savior, and for our redemption He paid the price for. We thank You for Your protection, Your guidance, and Your wisdom. We thank You for keeping our feet on Your path, and not leading us into temptation, but delivering us from the evil one. We thank You for our family, friends and neighbors. We thank You for the provision You have bestowed upon us. We thank You for Your abundance, and we thank You for Your sufficiency in grace for what we lack. We bend our knees and bow our heads to You Lord, and we give thanks... thanks for all You are, all You have done, all You are doing, and all You will do. We acknowledge our need of You, and our reliance on You, Father. Without You we are nothing; You give us worth. In Jesus Name we pray and agree. Amen. Have a good and blessed Thanksgiving everyone.

It isn't a minister's job to be a surrogate for God. It is a minister's job to give people truth, God's truth, and direction for walking in His truth. It is the recipient's job to confirm it before the Lord. Your salvation, and your freedom from bondage, are ultimately in your hands. The wise will seek to confirm the truth, but the foolish will seek to prove that which they desire, if they bother at all.

Broccoli, peas, green-beans, carrots and spinach may not be as enjoyable as pizza, hamburgers, fried chicken, and ice cream, but a diet without the former and filled with the latter isn't good for our health. Such is our spiritual health. While dwelling on God's blessings and favor is great, let's not forget to consume the meat of God's word, and allow Him to continue His work in us making us into the image of Christ.

The Lord is faithful to you; be faithful to the Lord. He is always there to hear us when we pray. He takes care in fulfilling each and every one of His promises. He ensures our salvation that we would not be forgotten. He comforts us, He blesses us, He guides us, He protects us. He watches over us, always, and He never takes a day off. The Lord is faithful to you; be faithful to the Lord.
