Daily Devotional for Wednesday April 15, 2020
The best way to show your thanks to God is by the way you live your life!
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I pray today to rise above the entrapments of this world in my life and those I love and care about. Satan has almost an endless way to ensnare people to fulfill his purpose which is to “kill, steal, and destroy!” The Bible says you have come to set the captives free. So today, set me free, set free those I love and care about, from the bondages of this temporal world so we can live in the total peace, joy, and abundance You intended Your children to enjoy each day. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Senicide is a word you better get used to hearing. A great irony in the entire Chinese Flu pandemic, is how Europe, Canada, and the United States have been pursuing an agenda to kill old people. It is a clear plan since the elderly take up finite healthcare dollars in nations who offer “free” healthcare to everyone. They are also a nuisance in many ways to society. So it is surprising since over 93% of those dying from the Chines Flu are over 63! As I have been warning for 20 years and spoke about in my 2-part Daily Devotional in January about what to expect in 2020, as the months of this year unfold you will see the mainstreaming and normalizing of killing older people. This is not hyperbole or paranoia, this is already happening in a few states NOW as I type these words. This is another issue I have been warning people about to take a stand on BEFORE it is too late. Once these states start coming on board with legislation legalizing euthanasia, doctor assisted suicide, stopping “senicide” will be too late. Be praying about this issue, reach out to your state lawmakers, this is a move happening very quietly in statehouses across the nation...TODAY!!!

How often do we come to God with a certain need, the Lord meets that need, and we don't even take the time to say thank you. Think back just over the last year of your life. Think back on those prayers that He has answered. What was your response when the answer came. A moment of thanksgiving? Relief that God had come through again?
How quickly did you forget that answer to prayer you needed so bad, and started focusing on the next problem you wanted God to handle for you?
Much of our prayer life is taken up with asking God for this and that, like He is some kind of genie in the bottle we send our wishes to. Don't get me wrong, God has told us to bring our needs to Him, to come to Him in prayer with our problems. It is His pleasure to bless His children. I am simply trying to focus you today on your response to those answered prayers. Like the 10 lepers in the scripture today, 9 never even bothered to come back to say thank you. Are you like the 9 or the 1 who returned to give thanks?
So often we take for granted God's blessings, His love for us. The logical question is how do I show my appreciation to God for what He has done for me? Start with loving Him. Loving Him means to obey Him. You obey your parents, not out of fear, but because you love them and don't want to disappoint them.
You are thankful for all they do for you and the best way to show your gratitude is to obey them and do what they have asked you to do. So is our relationship with our heavenly Father. The greatest way to show God how much we love and appreciate all He does for us is to obey Him, to live our life in a way that is pleasing and acceptable to Him.
I want to challenge you today. Never forget to thank God for all He has done for you. Show that gratitude by living your life in obedience to His Word. The Bible tells us that one of the things satan can't stand is the "word of their testimony."
Your praise reports give others going through similar situations the hope to carry on. Think back over the last few months, and send me your praise report of something God has done for you. Simply go to www.liveprayer.com and click on the PRAISE REPORT section and type in your praise report.
I love you and am praying for you. Make sure you spend a few extra minutes today giving God thanks for all He has done for you. No matter how many trials you may be facing, there is still so much to be thankful for. I often think I am having things rough. Then I read the problems others are facing and I realize how richly God is blessing me.
The best way to show your thanks to God is by the way you live your life. He is worthy of our praise and our lives dedicated to His service.
Give thanks to God today with your lips, and with your life!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
